Accreditation of the first Balint group leader in Greece

On 10 May 2014 the Council of the british Balint Society granted the accreditation of Balint group leader to Mrs. Lida Bitrou after the completion of her training. This is the first case in which a leader is trained by a foreign Balint society for the sole purpose of organizing and coordinating groups in Greece, thus paving the way to the training of other group leaders. The training addressed to doctors, psychologists and other health professionals, is based on the participation of the trainee in a Balint group as a member, leading of groups and supervision of his/her work with an accredited group leader.

Those interested in training can contact the Hellenic Balint Group. READ MORE »
