NESH – The First 30 Years! Our new Case Based On-Line Learning Series: What our Alumni have to say

We are all learning to do things a little differently these days.

Adapting to offering continuing education for our NESH alumni in an entirely on-line format has been exciting, challenging, and ultimately, very rewarding. While we continuously strive to evolve and improve on what we’ve done in the past, we are very happy to say that this NESH on-line learning experience has successfully launched – meeting our collective needs for public health safety while upholding the quality, content, and community intrinsic to in-person NESH classes.

The comments below are gathered from our inaugural two-part Case Based On-Line Learning Series which began in June. We invite you to learn more about our alumni by clicking on their names where possible, as you also enjoy reading about their experiences taking this course!

The New England School of Homeopathy is the best program for learning practical homeopathic case skills that can be replicated. The teaching stays true to classical homeopathic principles while the module tool compensates for the limitations of the repertory, this is an incredible combination that produces repeated results. This casework addition is most beneficial, to put years of this education into a deeper practice. And surprisingly the online system they have created has raised the bar to a higher level of integration, this has been extremely helpful.

I have to say this was excellent – love this format. I really found it super helpful and the I thought the break out rooms were awesome. I hope y’all keep this format – 3 hrs, one day in the weekend (as opposed to the whole weekend) – makes it feel more doable for commitment piece. Short assignments between classes, cases sent out ahead of the class, and follow up notes sent after the class.  What’s not to love?

Thoroughly enjoyed the NESH session today online with Paul and Amy. Absolutely the very next best thing to seeing them live. Three great cases plus new materia medica giving us a better understanding of the remedy picture of Ipecacuanha. So glad we signed upLoved seeing everyone and cannot wait for the next one. 
     – Monica Robinson MBRCP Hom & Tony Robinson MBRCP Hom (West Yorkshire, England)

It was just splendid and so worthwhile as usual. I love you both for doing all this all the time and keeping the fire of homeopathy alive in all of us!
     – Julie Forbes ND (North Bridgton, ME)

This series is so great!!! I love working through cases, it is really a helpful way to learn, since it’s so close to what it’s like in clinic. It’s also a great way to get my brain back into cycles and segments work. I also loved the breakout sessions, they seem to work really well and it’s fun to hear others’ thoughts on the cases and meet new people. It feels like it’s an ideal blend of casework, lecture and group work. Thank you!
     – Melinda Nickels ND, LAc (Vancouver, WA)

Thank you!! How thoughtful and generous of Paul, Amy, and Kim to share all this material. I really feel pampered! I loved the session and am looking forward to the next!
     – Andrea Weninger MD (Freiburg, Germany)

The session yesterday was great and such a lot of useful information. I am so pleased they are having further sessions in August. I was feeling really starved of time with the homeopathic community.  
     – CCH from Saint Louis, MO

Perfect way to check in to refresh and remind us of things we have learned and give something fresh for our brains to chew on. # hours is wonderful amount of time.
     – ND from Hedgesville, WV

I look forward to more of these! I appreciate that Amy and Paul and the rest of the team are organizing these opportunities at this time when in-person camaraderie is not possible. It is lovely to be in touch with such a compassionate community.
     – Deb Ganster VMD, LicAc, CCH (South Berwick, ME)

Thank you so much for this! I am beyond thrilled to be able to take these classes. A clinical weekend would not have been possible for me so this is an absolute privilege and joy!
     – Chris Cooke ND (Portland, OR)

I loved the online format and was so happy you were able to do this! I hope that you guys will continue this even after things return back to “normal,” since it’s not always feasible to make it up to Amherst, and learning from you consistently really helps solidify the connections you teach.
     – MS, CNS, CCH from Holmdel, NJ

Fantastic as always! Thank you! I always learn so much from NESH classes.
     – Kirsten Carle ND (Latham, NY)

I love listening/learning from you both – thanks so much for your work! This format is tremendous – ideal for me personally. Sadly, it’s hard to be there real-time, but it’s great learning I can do when my kids go to bed.
     – Ethan Rohde ND, MSAOM (Bellevue, WA)

I watched the RE-RUN of the second session, thank you very much – I found it really interesting and informative.
     – from West Yorkshire, England

I enjoyed the variety of cases around a single ‘Diagnosis’. Enjoyed the breakout segments and the chance to ‘see’ and ‘interact’ with old friends – as good as it gets during COVID quarantining.
     – Sheila Frodermann MS, ND, DHANP, CCH (Providence, RI)

Always so fun and personally meaningful to learn with you guys. Listening always makes the world and my world make more sense, and not much does these days. I am so happy this is a part, a big part, of my life. Joining these classes ground me, brings me back to myself, my interest, what intrigues me. I love understanding life through this process. Thank you thank you thank you!
     – Angel Rubino OT (Woodstock, VT)

I did really enjoy the clinic class, looking forward to the next one. The online format was nice.
     – ND from Newton, CT

I was very impressed with the seminar, especially when we were split into small groups so that could actually talk to other homeopaths, also it helped to have a change. I think that NESH is well ahead of the game with this modern technology because I have mentioned it to a lot of people and even those who use Zoom for business weren’t aware of the breakaway groups and were all very impressed.
     – Merran Sell (Surrey, England)

Wow, that was great! I love learning about different remedies and connecting it to a patient’s case. All in all a great course and reminder of Cycles and Segments! I always appreciate learning from Dr. Herscu and Dr. Rothenberg.
     – Deanna Weiss ND (Vancouver, BC, Canada)

It really helps me to watch and review cases. If I were doing the 2005-2006 or the 2007-2008 classes over, I would take notes on all the cases we saw in class or on video and what I noticed in addition to what Paul/Amy did when case taking. I didn’t understand then what I would find useful to go back to later, and I miss those tidbits! I remember things very well by stories! That said, I had never heard of homeopathy when I joined the 2005 class.  So, while I’ve been slow to build my framework, I feel like I am finally able to better fit pieces together from what Paul and Amy teach into my own practice. Materia Medica from the Cycles and Segments perspective makes so much more sense to me than just reading lists of symptoms. I so appreciate learning the cycles of the remedies with specific rubrics and how to put it together to think about the whole person.  More of this is always welcome.
     – Kitt Guaraldi ND (Portland, OR)

I really enjoyed it – I learnt a lot about Ipecac.
     – Sharon McMahon MBRCP Hom (West Yorkshire, England)

It was fantastic as always. Hopefully I can make the live viewing next time. Thank you!
     – Amanda Blandford ND, LMT (Rockford, MI)

Thanks so much y’all Amy and Paul, it was great seeing you. Kim, thanks for your wonderful work getting this set up. Thanks also to everyone for embracing the digital world. I look forward to August’s session.
     – Jeff Feinman VMD, CVH (Weston, CT)

That was really great. I’m thankful that they did it via Zoom in light of CoVid. Thanks BUNCHES!
     – ND, LMT from West Hartford, CT

I think the 3 hours is about right for Zoom, as longer sessions can be tiring. Cases to read in advance and homework – good to get the thought process going again.
     – Mary Imlah (Rowlands Gill, England)

I viewed the information and loved it. Thank you!
     – from Virginia Beach, VA

So good to get to be part of this. Thank you for setting this up – I know the work that goes into organizing these things. Looking forward to the next one!
     – CHom from Whispering Pines, NC

The class was wonderful and thank you so much for your wonderful organization, sending explicit directions, and being present for us!!
     – Naomi Zeskind (Charlotte, NC)

It was so useful to have had the cases in advance and to be able to analyse them in my own way and then understand how that relates to the cycles and segments approach. From my perspective, everything about this session worked.  The content was useful, it was good value and great fun. Thank you for your clear instructions and for all the work behind the scenes always done in a cheerful and prompt manner!
     – Christine Kavanagh RS Hom (England)

It was very informative. Great cases and I am learning a lot. Thank you so much.
