Case Taking reveals both the science and the art of homeopathy at its core. In this course, students of homeopathy will see it come alive in action. Through video-cases, paper-cases, and live cases, students will learn and practice case-taking as well as understand the basics of every step of case analysis. They will watch real cases, and practice analyzing them to arrive at a homeopathic diagnosis and treatment plan. This course takes a multifaceted approach to case analysis from the most basic Hahnemannian methods to the most contemporary methods used in homeopathy today. Approaches to case-taking and analysis will include: Hahnemannian basics, the totality of characteristic symptoms, Boenninghausen Approach, the use of keynotes, the use of constitution and temperament, the genius or essence of the case (Kent, Vithoulkas), pathological prescribing, etiological considerations, miasmatic prescribing (Hahnemannian and contemporary), kingdom and family group analysis (Scholten, Sankaran, ect.), sensation method (Sankaran), synergy method, and leap method (Chhabra). Various types of cases such as acute pathologies (like fever) and chronic diseases (like asthma) will be viewed and worked on. This course will familiarise the students with the essence of different remedies and remedy family groupings within a controlled setting. They will see the Materia Medica come alive in real patient cases and develop the skills and confidence to start taking patient cases on their own.
