Balint groups foster a quality doctor-patient relationship
Residents and practicing physicians, even experienced ones, often struggle with effective clinical caregiving. They may not know how to handle a bad patient interaction or a poor clinical outcome, but with the right problem-solving techniques and emotional support, it can get better.
Balint groups can help resolve these issues. Michael and Enid Balint are psychoanalysts who formed the movement by speaking at seminars for family physicians in London during the 1950s.
