BALINT GROUP FOR COLLABORATIVE DIVORCE PROFESSIONALS
COHO PRACTICE GROUP FOR COLLABORATIVE PROFESSIONALS
Coho Practice Group is open to all. We meet monthly via Zoom for discussion based on a short reading, with the aim of 1) fostering connections among newer and more seasoned collaborative practitioners, 2) exploring the complexities and nuances of our field, and 3) learning through reflection.
Meetings are the third Wednesday of the month, September through June, 12-1:30.
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.
