Balint groups ‘unstick’ and re-energize therapy through direct practice of flexing the “muscle” of empathic, imaginative reflection. The group work spells out transference and countertransference dynamics gently and non-intrusively.  After an extemporaneous presentation of a case, group members describe what arises intuitively and imaginatively while focusing on the experiences of both members in the therapeutic relationship. We do not offer advice regarding technical management of the treatment process. A unique aspect of Balint group is how valuable the process is for both the one presenting the case and group members working on their colleagues’ cases.  This work opens the heart and mind and helps one develop language and imagery for the emotional life within and between therapists and clients.
