Reply To: Balint group size


Di Nash

To pick up this discussion, the BSANZ leaders have decided over the last few years from experience that 9 is an optimal group size for the Balint groups at the Annual BSANZ Balint Group Workshops (previously known as Intensives).

We have limited the numbers to 9 per group for the 2016 workshop at Hanmer Springs in October.

We accepted 11 per group at Castaways in Auckland in 2014, and 9 per group at Noosa Heads in Queensland in 2015. The feeling was that 11 was too many in the groups.

Some of those members who participated in these workshops may have thoughts about this – please comment if you would like to do so.
