Physicians, nurses, teachers, pastors, social workers are all warmly welcome to our Balint groups. According to our approach, a ‘case’ is any relationship where you are professionally responsible for the other.
Our programme includes large groups, dramatical Balint groups and a new version, namely Integrative Casuistry, which combines Balint method and traditional case-reporting.
Methodical large groups will be held on the third day of the congress for participants interested in leadership.
