    Collaborative Case Studies in AM:
    A 26 year-old Woman with Anxiety, Migraine, and Sleep disturbance

    This series of webinars will work through one of the classic case histories described by Rudolf Steiner and Ita Wegman in their book Fundamentals of Therapy. The first four webinars are open to doctors, nurses and all Anthroposophic therapists. Each session will include several short teaching presentations, plus time for break-out discussion groups, arranged for either interdisciplinary discussions (December and March) or profession/modality-specific discussions (January and February). The fifth session in April is just for licensed prescribers (MD, DO, ND, NP, PA, Dentist, Pharmacist).

    We look forward to collaboratively deepening our own knowledge, as well as fruitful sharing between the many different kinds of Anthroposophic practitioners that make up our medical community.

    Course outline:
    Session One (Dec 8, 2020):
    Case Review and the Spiritual Physiology of Sleep
    Interdisciplinary discussion: How can asking about sleep help us build a better picture of constitution?

    Session Two (Jan 12, 2021):
    Anxiety and the “Thin-skinned” Constitution
    Discussion by profession/modality: How does this relate to the world situation today?

    Session Three (Feb 9, 2021):
    Migraine Process
    Discussion by profession/modality: What is an Anthroposophic understanding of the migraine process?

    Session Four (Mar 9, 2021):

    Interdisciplinary discussion: Bringing a multidisciplinary approach—sharing round the circle—"What would you do for this patient?”

    Join us for a series of free webinar sessions dedicated to building more physical and spiritual vitality.   

    Tuesdays, January 26th, February 23rd and March 23rd at 8:30pm EST/7:30pm CST/6:30pm MST/5:30pm PST. Sessions will run about 75 minutes. 

    Each live, online teaching session will begin with the demonstration of hygienic eurythmy exercises (movement therapy) to help you feel both renewed and protected. These can form the basis for a personal practice to help you feel both centered and enlivened. Then we will hear more in-depth sharing of Anthroposophic psychology insights (January), Anthroposophic nursing treatments (February) and Anthroposophic medical supports (March). After a long and challenging pandemic year we want to collectively move towards the future with open hearts and strong intention. 

    Webinars are open to the whole community! There is not cost, but we do need you to please register.

    Sessions will be recorded and made available to all registrants.

    This series is co-sponsored by the Anthroposophic Health Association (AHA), the Foundation for Health Creation (FHC), and the Physicians’ Association for Anthroposophic Medicine (PAAM)

    Please feel free to share this information with others in your community.

    Beyond the Molecular and Mechanical Model: Lung, Liver, Kidney, Heart

    With special guest faculty Dr. James Dyson
    May 1-8, 2021, in Chestnut Ridge, New York

    Current updates (as of Jan 11, 2021):
    Even though many logistical aspects remain fluid due to the pandemic, we are moving forward with plans for an in-person meeting that can be easily converted to online teaching, if needed.  A final decision about how we will meet will be shared on March 20th, 2021, six weeks before the planned start of the in-person conference.

     
    Why try to meet in person? We are still hoping for an in-person meeting because this conference focuses on four main organs: lung, liver, kidney and heart. A significant part of the conference will be devoted to small group observation of these organs, using cow and sheep organs for dynamic Goethean observation. There is no way we can replicate that experience online, it simply is not possible, so if we have to go to an online format the organ observation process will be left out. If you have never experienced this kind of organ observation before, we strongly encourage you to join us in Chestnut Ridge, NY, for this unique experience which is only offered once every four years.
     
    Registration: is currently open for those who can commit to participating in an in-person conference. Because of social-distancing requirements and limits on group size, we anticipate that only 42 slots will be available. Registration will close when the slots have filled. The conference is limited to licensed prescribers (MD, DO, ND, NP, PA, DDS, PharmD) and students of those disciplines.
     
    Fees: The initial registration fee will be $675 for PAAM and SPAN members ($750 for non-members). This covers the planned core lectures and small group teaching (indicated in green boxes in the Planned Conference Schedule, below). When we confirm that the meeting can take place in-person on March 20th, then a second, equal payment will be due within 10 days to save your in-person place. That second payment will be needed to cover tuition for the organ observation sessions, evening lectures, meals, and space rental costs. In the event that we are not able to meet in-person (because of local or state restrictions, travel restrictions, or insufficient enrollment for an in-person meeting), then we will move to an online format. Your initial registration of $675 will then simply be rolled over, as the total fee for the online program—no additional steps or payment will be required, beyond selecting your small group teaching sessions.
     
    For those friends who know they would only participate in online teaching:

    If we move to an online format, then registration will open, beyond the 42 slots, after March 20th.

    If an in-person meeting is possible, then some smaller portion of the conference, probably the afternoon workshops (indicated in red font in the schedule below) will be offered as a live zoom. Registration to sign up just for those sessions will open after March 20th.
