BALINT GROUP FOR COLLABORATIVE DIVORCE PROFESSIONALS
COHO PRACTICE GROUP FOR COLLABORATIVE PROFESSIONALS
Coho Practice Group is a local watering hole open to current and prospective Collaborative professionals. There is no fixed membership, and there are no prerequisites to join.
Often a guest joins us to guide us through topics chosen by the group, and the link below shows current and prior topics.
Meetings are the third Wednesday of the month, September through June, 12-1:30. Contact me for the link!
Our work is complex, requiring technical skill in a dynamic setting with clients under significant stress. Balint groups build our empathy, by cultivating our imaginative comprehension of our clients' experiences. A Balint group provides a safe forum to bring together experience and meaning. As we deepen our empathy, we lessen the isolation that can lead to burnout.
Joanna coordinates two monthly Balint groups. One is facilitated by a local psychotherapist, Kris Wheeler. The other is hosted through Collaborative Professionals of Washington, and co-lead by Joanna Roth and Trevor Slocum. If you are interested in learning more about Balint or joining a group, please contact Joanna.
