Balint group at Sismanogleio General Hospital of Attica for the Internal Medicine Nursing Specialty (September 2018)

After the invitation of the Social Services of the Sismanogleio General Hospital of Attica, we conducted, last September, a Balint group for the nurses who are training in the Internal Medicine Specialty programme. This very interesting group that was conducted under the co-leadership of Mrs Lida Bitrou, clinical psychologist and accredited group leader, and Mrs Alia Hotary, psychologist and group leader in training, pointed out the need to integrate a method of psychological approach to patients in the training and clinical practice of nurses.

The first Balint group with an accredited group leader in a Greek public hospital (25 April 2018)

On 25 April 2018, a Balint group with an accredited Balint group leader was conducted for the first time with great success in a Greek public hospital at the General Hospital “Elena Venizelou” in Athens. The clinical psychologist and group leader Mrs Lida Bitrou, after her theoretical talk on the announcement of bad news to patients, led a Balint group for the doctors, nurses and midwives of the Department of Prenatal Screening, Assisted Reproduction and Family Planning of the hospital. We hope that this group will mark the beginning of the implementation of Balint groups with accredited group leaders in the hospitals of our country that need a place in which the medical and nursing staff will have the opportunity to talk about their emotions and difficulties related to their valuable work.

Participation in the Balint weekend in Leeds (November 13-15, 2015)

The leader of the Hellenic Balint Groups, Mrs Lida Bitrou, took part in the Balint weekend that took place in Leeds UK. The participation of the group leader in the weekend was financed by the members of the groups giving her this way the opportunity to take part as a member in four groups of case presentations and one “fishbowl group” (demonstration group) as well as the projection of Jean Renoir’s black and white classical movie “Partie de Campagne” (A day in the country). At the dinner that was given in honor of the participants, the group leader had the chance to talk with her British colleagues and group leaders and exchange views and ideas about the function of Balint groups and the role of health professionals in the two countries.
