Introductory Session

Working from our Patients’ words to the Language of our Literature
How do we move from Interview and Observation to Analysis?


ACHENA Approved for 12 Hours - Available Online Only

In his instructions on casetaking, Hahnemann tells us that, “Once the
totality of the symptoms that principally determine and distinguish the disease case - in other words, the image of any kind of disease - has been exactly recorded, the most difficult work is done.” (our emphasis)

But is it? For most of us, the work has just begun!

The task of translating the patient's subjective words - and our objective observations - into the language of our literature is a daunting one.

In this 6-week course, we'll explore a variety of approaches for accomplishing this essential task (in both print & electronic literature), addressing such topics as:

  • Understanding a 'Complete Symptom' and what to look for in the Repertory.
  • Familiarizing yourself with the structure and content of contemporary repertories.
  • Working with the language: archaic words, technical jargon, anatomical and pathological terminology.
  • The perils of working with English translations of 19th-century German literature.
  • Identifying and working with entry-points into the repertory.
  • Effective use of Cross References, Synonyms and Concepts Files in the (electronic) Synthesis Repertory.
  • Structure and use of “specialty” repertories: Roberts' and Ward's Sensations As If, Boenninghausen's Therapeutic Pocketbook, Phatak's and Boericke's Repertories, Clark's Clinical Repertory, and more.
  • Navigating and using the Mind and Dreams sections of the repertory.
  • When to use Local v/s General modalities and sensations.
  • Evaluating the reliability and completeness of a rubric.
  • How and when to use combined and crossed rubrics in an analysis.
  • Understanding the meaning of a rubric using a comparative study of its remedies.
  • Reconciling the repertory with primary materia medica.

All of this will be explored in the context of casework, with one or more new cases posted each week, carefully chosen to illustrate the concepts and approaches we'll be bringing into focus.

ABOUT Will Taylor

"My goal is to help you develop specific skills in casework
and materia medica study which you can apply productively in every-day practice."

PRAISE FOR Will Taylor

I must say I am completely and totally impressed with the online classes you provide. I wish I had more time!
I especially appreciate “simple” classes that go in depth regarding one specific remedy, such as Helleborus, Aethusa, Rhus tox, etc. I would love more of these! Kim Elia and Dr. Taylor do such a fantastic job of presenting the whole picture of remedies. I would appreciate even one-hour classes on the more common remedies... I have studied these remedies but I consistently get a clearer picture after a session with Kim or Dr. Taylor.

Thank you for making these available!

— Anna B.

Please tell Will Taylor that I thoroughly enjoyed his course and he is a fantastic teacher. He has such an easy going manner, very in depth knowledge, humor and clear teaching that it is pure pleasure to hear him.

I adore Will's presentation style, have had him several times as a teacher at the school I attended. I appreciate his sense of humour and movie quotes. I will listen to him anytime. If I could afford to take all his online classes, I would.

I am so delighted to have discovered Dr. Taylor as a teacher. He is among the best I have encountered. His depth of knowledge, understanding of disease, and humility make him a joy to learn with. He presents a high bar with his dedication to excellence, which inspires us to reach farther with our own professional development.

I wanted to thank you yet again for another wonderful course. You certainly are a talented educator with so much experience, I feel extremely grateful to have the opportunity of learning from you and also for the invention of webinars! Thanks to you and your WHN team, I am now addicted and find it really hard to resist each new series on offer.

I just wanted to thank you for your wonderfully enlightening and stimulating course on Rheumatic Diseases. I learned so much from the enormous detail you managed to cover each week. I'm sure it takes a tremendous amount of time and energy to research and compile each lecture - but nothing goes unnoticed Will, I'm sure everyone is most grateful to you.

I know I've said this to you before, but I'd really like to tell you again - you are an extremely inspiring educator with a depth of knowledge in so many areas, it's always such a treat to spend whatever time I get to share your insight. And all this with a wonderful sense of humour.

— Student

I love, love, love the Rheumatic Diseases course as well. (Want more of that.) -- Also looking forward to the Cardiovascular Course.

— Sarah D.

Thank you for a wonderful Webinar. This was my first webinar with you, and I really enjoyed it. This has opened up a whole new universe for me to learn homeopathy. Up until now I always avoided webinars. But yours was as good as a live seminar. I am so glad I signed up for it.
I look forward to attending more of your webinars in future.

— Prafulla M.
