Conference Brochure

American Balint Society (ABS) Leadership Training Intensive is organized by American Balint Society (ABS) and will be held during Jan 18 - 21, 2018 at Holiday Inn Express Denver Downtown, Denver, Colorado, United States of America.

The target audience for this medical event is medical educators and practicing clinicians who teach or seek to develop the clinician-patient relationship. Those meant to attend include physicians, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers and mental health professionals. Particularly targeted to those who are currently leading or hope to lead Balint groups, it is also appropriate for residents, fellows, and community clinicians wanting to learn more about Balint work. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 19.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.

Conference Description :

This training offers practical, experiential learning opportunities for those who are currently leading or hope to lead Balint groups. Small group sessions are led by two faculty members who are credentialed Balint leaders. Each session includes a Balint group followed by debriefing of group process and leader interventions. Participants have the opportunity to practice leading Balint groups and receive feedback on their leadership skills. Each group will record a Balint group and debrief the video recording. Critical issues of Balint work will be addressed during topic-focused discussions. During this Balint Leadership Training Intensive, a few experienced participants may be co-leading small group sessions as a part of an evaluation process by which they hope to become credentialed Balint group leaders. If we have credentialing candidates, we will ask all members of their small group to complete an assessment of the candidate’s effectiveness during one of the two sessions in which the candidate is acting as a co-leader. We believe this process furthers your learning of Balint leadership skills, in addition to offering the candidate helpful feedback.

Learning Objectives :

At the end of the training, attendees will be able to:
• Describe verbal and non-verbal leadership behaviors of Balint Group leaders.
• Demonstrate the effectiveness of different leadership interventions.
• Identify process and progression of a Balint Group, over multiple group sessions.
• Define the new perspective of the presenter as a result of the Balint Group process

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
