Because of the importance of the group dynamics which will arise during the congress, we ask participants to attend all the planned sessions of their Balint group. 

In case of delay or impossibility to join the congress on September 5th, we cannot guarantee the attendee will be able to participate in small group work. We won’t expect small group participants to accept a new attendee after the 1st session. 

Participants will also be asked to remain in their assigned groups, unless requested by the organizers to change.

The past congresses evaluation forms showed that the success of Balint work lies in the respect of some obvious cautious and careful rules
