Balint Groups for CTs

Balint groups are a curriculum item for CT trainees. This link to the Balint Society offers a very good historical overview.

We like to discuss cases that have brought up strong emotions in us, and think about the doctor-patient relationship with curiosity about what else might be going on. It is a non-judgmental and confidential space to think and reflect for doctors.
