«LEADING A BALINT GROUP. a Guide»
In a very comprehensible form it gives an account of the manifold aspects of Balint group leaders’ training and work, the types of Balint groups and their main features, as well as what a Balint group is not by definition. The author thoroughly considers the following issues: the leader’s position in a Balint group, the co-leader’s job, the parallel process, specificity of leaders’ training – requirements, stages and criteria. The book tells about styles of leading different groups, eg. homogeneous and heterogeneous groups, groups with physicians, psychologists and psychiatrists as well as with members of other helping professions. The aspects of supervision for Balint group leaders and the key leader’s tasks in a classical and sculpture group are also
covered. A special Appendix features the main guidelines of the International Balint Federation for accreditation of Balint group leaders and criteria for their accreditation in Germany.
This bilingual edition – Russian and English versions under one cover – features original thematic illustrations.
This book is a mutual project of Dr. Heide Otten and Psyllabus publishing house.
