From Theory to Practice

Observing practicing herbalists as they navigate real-life clinical situations is an essential component of transitioning from theoretical herbalism to clinical practice.

Much of what we need to know to support our clients isn’t written down in a book; Navigating the complexities of modern diseases and mainstream medical treatments, running differentials and taking a complete health history while holding space for our clients’ stories and maintaining the role of herbalist as educator - these skills are best learned through observation, discussion and practice.

What to Expect in Class

We will meet one Friday each month from 5-7pm eastern. Classes are recorded and uploaded to the online classroom for those who can't join live.

In this live online series, you will observe an initial intake and participate in a moderated case review discussion directly following the consultation. Thomas will walk you through his differentials, thought processes, and initial ideas surrounding the case. There will be time for questions throughout this process.

You will receive redacted copies of client intake forms and bloodwork before the event, the finalized health plan within one week of the event, and access to the recorded first follow-up appointment 4-6 weeks after the event.

For those of you working towards American Herbalist Guild professional membership, this series counts towards your clinical hours.

Pricing for the CHIA Series

The cost is $40 a month.

Students only have access to the series content while they're subscribed.
