During this workshop, we will introduce participants to Balint groups and their use in classroom and clinical education. Participants will learn a brief history of Balint groups, their purpose, their structure, and then, we will experience a mock Balint group. Participants will then have an opportunity to debrief the mock Balint group experience.
