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.
