Leadership Training Intensive Course is organized by The American Balint Society (ABS) and will be held from Oct 17 - 20, 2019 at The Engleside Inn and Restaurant, Long Beach Island, New Jersey, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 16 CE Credits. Target Audience: The Long Beach Island Leadership Intensive course is appropriate for clinicians new to the Balint Group method as well as experienced Balint Group leaders. The course is well-suited to those who are currently leading, expect to lead in the future, or are seeking a better understanding of Balint groups. The curriculum is appropriate for physicians (primary care, psychiatry, other specialists), psychologists, social workers, other mental health care providers, and pastoral care providers. Course Overview: The four-day Intensive course is designed to teach Balint group leadership technique primarily through experiential groups, supplemented by topic-focused small discussion groups and faculty panel discussions. Attendees will have ample time to present cases, practice leading a Balint group, and engage informally with other participants. Faculty-guided debriefings provide opportunities to receive feedback on participants’ practice sessions in a safe and supportive setting. Participants emerge from the course with a deeper understanding of Balint group leadership techniques and responsibilities and improved awareness of the method’s limitation and risks. This course is given a minimum of twice a year. Each offering has unique aspects because of the mix of faculty and the specific cases offered in the Balint groups themselves. Course Goals : At the end of the training, attendees will be able to: • Describe verbal and non-verbal behaviors of Balint Group leaders. • Recognize the effectiveness of different leadership interventions. • Identify the process and progression of a Balint Group, over multiple group sessions. • Define the new perspective of a presenter as a result of the Balint Group process. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
