The Principles of Case Management

 ACHENA Approved for 13 Hours!


The initial prescription could be compared very much to the opening drive in a game of golf.
We have our rare holes-in-one; but the mark of a proficient practitioner is not so much measured by these rare successes, as it is by the art of proceeding along from there, of following the patient down the path toward cure. Which involves:

  • knowing what to do
  • knowing what not to do
  • understanding when to do or not to do it


Seasoned practitioner and experienced case supervisor Dr. Will Taylor demonstrates how this course will help you navigate a successful course of treatment.

What is more beautiful to look upon than the bud during its hourly changes to the rose in its bloom ... The return symptom-image unfolds the knowledge by which we know whether the first prescription was the specific or the palliative, i. e., we may know whether the remedy was deep enough to cure all the deranged vital wrong or simply a superficially acting remedy, capable of only a temporary effect. The many things learned by the action of the first remedy determine the kind of demand made upon the physician for the second prescription.
James Tyler Kent, Lecture on the Second Prescription, 1888

Praise for Dr. Taylor

Gotta give this class a Five Star review. I think that this class will become The Standard for practitioners searching for guidance with the second prescription and case management. What is unique about this course is that a beginner will improve their prescribing skills immensely, and the experienced practitioner will see insights and ideas which will certainly elevate their success in everyday practice. Definitely a series of lectures from which any person practicing homeopathy will benefit tremendously.
— Alan Feldman
Gotta agree Alan - 5 kernels of popcorn out of 5 :) - definitely seeing the elevated success in everyday practice as you say!! Thanks to Will, along with Melissa and all the people working in the background, for another fantastic course!
— Heather Hawthorne
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.
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.
