Would you like to experience more joy and satisfaction in your workplace relationships and also reduce your stress? The evidence from other medical contexts shows that this can be achieved by participating in a regular Reflective Practice using the Balint model. These groups are small (up to 10 people) and create a safe space where challenging or troubling encounters can be discussed. The focus is on the veterinarian–owner/client relationship, and facilitation is by 2 trained Balint leaders.
