PAAM Training Webinar Series: Learning the Language of Healing Plants
A study seminar
This webinar series will focus on the phenomenology of healing plants, as we strive to learn how the healing properties of a plant can be understood through the "language" of shape, size, proportion, growth pattern and environment. We will base the study on Markus Sommer's book, "Healing Plants: Herbal Remedies from Traditional Anthroposophic Medicine," which is available at steinerbooks.com.
Each session will be devoted to two healing plants, with 20-25 minute presentations by PAAM members or guest speakers on each of the healing plants.
Schedule: Six Thursday evening sessions, beginning at 8:30pm EST / 7:30 CST / 6:30 MST / 5:30 PST, each lasting for about 60 minutes.
Dec 1st: Peppermint and Daisy
Jan 5th: Betula (birch) and Primula (cowslip)

PAAM Training Webinar Series: Working Constitutionally with Children
Adam Blanning MD, course director
Began October 2016. Registration is now closed.
This webinar course works through foundational anthroposophic insights into child growth and development through the lens of constitutional polarities, as presented by Rudolf Steiner. Topics such as developmental delay, depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, aggressive behaviors, tics and autism are explored. In-depth methods for clinical observation and constitutional prescribing are practiced through a series of four case write-ups, two per year.
Pre-requisite Training: attendance of at least two years of IPMT meetings (or equivalent training). It is strongly recommended that participants have also completed a year of clinical mentoring. Participants are expected to have a working understanding of the 4-fold and 3-fold approaches in anthroposophic medicine coming into the course. Preparatory reading materials and resources will be provided before each session.
The course is limited to licensed prescibers (MD, DO, PA, NP, and ND graduates of approved four-year schools).
In order to do the required case reports, participants should be actively working with children in their clinical practice and/or be able to observe them in a classroom setting. There will be a case write-up required in January and May of each year.
