MERSEY CARE PSYCHOTHERAPY TRAINING

AUGUST 2022 - PSYCHOTHERAPY BALINT GROUPS

Psychotherapy Balint Groups will recommence on Wed 17 August 22 at 3.00 pm run by Dr Christopher Findlay, Consultant Psychiatrist, Halton - Christopher.Findlay@merseycare.nhs.uk.  They run weekly every Wednesday at 3pm (unless Dr Findlay is unavailable due to annual leave) and are delivered virtually via Teams.  It is essential for trainees to have their cameras turned and to ensure they are in a private setting so as not be disturbed due to the confidential nature of the session. Generally, trainees who try to join more than 10 minutes late are not permitted to attend the session as this can disrupt the flow.  Current practice is that a minimum of 10 sessions and presentation of at least one case is required for assessment of CBDGA, two of which are needed to move on to psychotherapy cases.

If anyone requires dictation equipment please email MWED2@merseycare.nhs.uk.
