This session will alternate between a Balint style group and workshops on Consultation skills.

Balint group is a case discussion group where you can bring cases that have been particularly difficult, that have impacted upon you or that have raised interesting learning points/discussion opportunities. These are shared within the group with the chance for facilitated follow up discussion and are highly valued by trainees as a safe environment to discuss their patient experiences as a trainee.

Consultation skills sessions will usually involve role play and will focus on one particular area of communication or consultation skills in order to gradually help you build up those skills throughout your three years of training.
