Advanced Clinical Class Weekends for NESH Alum

Read what our alum have had to say about these advanced clinical class.

Once you have studied with NESH and have a solid foundation in Cycles and Segments, we offer Clinical Class Weekends where all the work, study and time together can come to fruition. The other added benefit is that you get to meet other Cycles and Segmentarians from around the country and abroad. This Clinical Course is offered only to those individuals who have completed a full NESH program either in Amherst, Seattle, Portland, Boston, Florida, or abroad.

If you are not a NESH alum, see our complete teaching schedule for other opportunities to study with Drs. Herscu & Rothenberg.

Our vision is to bring you together to strengthen your skills and confidence in the practice of homeopathy. In that process, we hope to help foster a sense of loving community and support, and to create a stronger network of Cycles and Segments thinkers so that you will have others to share (homeopathic) successes and frustrations with in the years to come.

In these classes Drs. Herscu and Rothenberg see patients in person – some new, some return, where one of them takes the case and work is done in small groups to do the analyses.  Sometimes more than one patient at a time is seen and we break into smaller groups. Amy & Paul, along with the student participants, analyze the case, repertorize and come up with appropriate remedies. Paul or Amy always weighs in with their thoughts and the person who brought the patient into class remains the primary caregiver. The goal is to get lots of experience seeing differing pathologies, different remedy types and a consistent, predictable, reinforcing model of Cycles & Segments thinking and practice.

Participants will have the opportunity to bring in patients to class (either live, by video, or in the form of paper cases), for help both with your own case-taking/case analysis as well as input from us and other more experienced practitioners. We continue to teach materia medica as relevant and to work on elements of philosophy and long term follow-up care. Lectures relate to patients at hand, current epidemics or other timely topics. And of course, we try to offer up other musings related to life in and out of the clinic.

Members of this class are invited to join the ListServ which is quite active and open only to current and former Clinical Class participants where cases are posted, questions asked and participants share responses and feedback. Amy & Paul want to help you take whatever next steps you need in order to bring quality homeopathic care to those in need.

Schedule for 2020-2021 NESH Advanced Clinical Class Weekends:

Online Case-Based Learning Series for NESH Alumni only: Read what our alumni say about these Sessions

LIVE Session #4A (first 3 hours) Saturday October 30, 2021: Noon – 3pm Eastern Time (9am-noon Pacific)
LIVE Session #4B (second 3 hours) Saturday November 13, 2021: Noon – 3pm Eastern Time (9am-noon Pacific)

TOPIC:  Hysteria/Conversion Disorder and the Disquiet Mind

We have spoken about Anxiety and Related Disorders at length previously, but want to tackle a growing issue of the disquiet mind, the utter overwhelm, and broad reaching fallout from the stress response that has become ubiquitous in our times. We’ll use case reports to delve into the overall topic of what was formerly really poorly described and ascribed as hysteria, which some now diagnose as conversion disorder, by discussing common presentations and diving into remedies/materia medica and the repertory. It is 2021, and see this as a timely and important topic.

Separately, or relatedly, we will begin our session with one very specific difficult issue: The uniquely odd situation of those nearing death exemplified by the COVID-19 emergency crisis. We’ll explore what you are likely to see and how to understand and deal with this situation. There is a relationship between these two topics, which we will further explore in class in the way some patients sometimes change symptoms as they near death. More on this as we start the class.

3 Sessions from 2020 are still open for enrollment to our NESH Alumni only:

June 27 & July 11, 2020: Session #1 of NESH: The First 30 Years! 
A NEW 2 Part On-Line Series only for NESH Alumni. (Available for On-line Viewing) Whereas our usual in-person Clinical Classes focus on a special disease or specific patient population, this series focus is on the day-to-day life and practice of the classical homeopath. Specifically, going into more detail on each of the processes that the homeopath undertakes. We will explore what works and what does not work in the real world, using paper cases as the vehicle to illustrate specific points and refine technique.

Session 1 – Part A: (first 3 hours) –
Topic: Nuts & Bolts via Case Reviews plus materia medica of Ipecac

Session 1 – Part B: (second 3 hours) –
Topic: Improving Patient Outcomes via Case Reviews plus materia medica of Lobelia

August 8 & August 22, 2020: Session #2 of NESH: The First 30 Years!
A NEW 2 Part On-Line Series only for NESH Alumni (Available for On-line Viewing)
The topic will be Anxiety. There are, at this time of 2020, so many stressors, so many changes, so much uncertainty, that anxiety is on the rise both as a stand alone symptom and as an accompaniment to many other issues. During these two, three hour sessions, we will focus on the current manifestations and treatments of anxiety, as presenting at this time.

Session 2 – Part A: (first 3 hours) –
Topic: Anxiety plus materia medica of Lathyrus Sativas

Session 2 – Part B: (second 3 hours) –
Topic: Anxiety plus materia medica of Theridion and Oleander

November 14 & December 12, 2020: Session #3 of NESH: The First 30 Years!
A NEW 2 Part On-Line Series only for NESH Alumni (Available for On-line Viewing)
Topic: Lingering Disease – Changing the Course of the Future. Sometimes people have a small disease now, but you can see how it is going to play out in 5 years/10 years/20 years, getting WORSE. Modifying it now, when it is small, might make a small difference today, but a HUGE difference then.

Session 3 – Part A: (first 3 hours) –
Topic: Lingering Disease plus materia medica of Zincum metallicum

Session 3 – Part B: (second 3 hours) –
Topic: Lingering Disease (with COVID cases) plus materia medica of Cocculus indica and Cinchona (China)

Contact us for more details.  It is also good for us to know you are interested, so that we can keep you updated when we have further information about class scheduling and logistical details.

In addition, Dr. Rothenberg is now offering case supervision to those practitioners and students who have completed the NESH Two Year Class. She also offers sessions where you can just ask general homeopathy questions, one-to-one, either by phone or by email.

And remember as a NESH Two Year Class alum, for those of you interested in taking it again as several folks have done over the years, repeating it is half price. NESH is currently offering our 150 Hour Online Develop Expertise in Homeopathy Course starting February 2022.
