Plan ahead and make time for you with this September’s new academic year! Learn a skill for life – short course or long course, the choice is yours!
Would you like to learn more about wellbeing, natural health and homeopathy in a relaxed but professional environment? Maybe you would enjoy a practical course, with lots of interactive learning and innovative teaching? Would you like to be able to use a home remedy kit to use on friends and family? Then a short course might be for you. Come along to our ‘Beginning Homeopathy’ Course 23-24 September, meet fellow students and enjoy a beautiful setting in central Salisbury. Our tutors are enthusiastic, professional, practising homeopaths and lecturers who want you to get the most from your learning. You could even use the weekend as a ‘taster’ if you’re considering a professional training or change of career. See here for more!
Or why not investigate a new career? Train part-time over 4 years, with 10 weekends a year in beautiful Salisbury – innovative teaching, one-to-one tutor support, become part of the college community and learn a life-changing, transformative way of viewing health and how to work with individual clients. Become the change you want to see in the world. Our four year licentiate course will prepare you for practice and it starts this autumn too. See here for more details.
2015 has been a busy year for me as a researcher and conference presenter! In June I was invited to present a poster at the HRI conference in Rome on Homeopathy as an alternative to antibiotics for otitis media. The conference was an exciting and dynamic event, and gave a great overview of current research happening in the homeopathic community. In contrast, the November Euroscicon conference, “Antibiotic resistance and antibiotic alternatives: Looking towards the future”, brought together international researchers from a spectrum of medical fields. I am pleased to say that my presentation “Should homoeopathy be considered as part of a treatment strategy for otitis media/OME?” was well received and led to by some interesting questions and discussion around the topic.
The conference highlight for me was a trip to Oslo as a guest speaker at the Norwegian Homeopathy Research Convention. Our hosts treated us royally, the city impressed us with its fabulous architecture and sculpture, while the spectacle of a huge red moon during the lunar eclipse was a sight to behold!
Finally I have been continuing my post- doctoral thesis on the emotional life of organisations, and in August I presented a paper on work to date at the European Sociological Association in Prague. My paper ‘Interaction Rituals and Jumbled Emotions Among “Relative Strangers: Simulated Patient Work on a Trainee Complementary Therapy Practitioner Program’ can be accessed at http://sgo.sagepub.com/content/5/3/2158244015595090.
