What makes an Ayurvedic practitioner competent, capable and confident?
Theoretical knowledge is the foundation for Ayurvedic study, though it must be combined with enough practical experience to make the best practitioner. Practical experience cannot come without actually practicing, though venturing into this territory can, understandably, feel completely daunting at first. Internship and practicums provide valuable mentored training ground for this purpose, but every practitioner will still reach a point at which it is time to begin practicing solo.
Challenging cases are opportunities for learning and growth - but how to learn from them?
When challenging cases arrive, theoretical knowledge may not be enough to work out the kinks. Referring clients to a more advanced clinician is one method of handling a difficult case that is truly beyond your scope of practice, but to working through the case is the only way to gain your own practical experience - which is essential to improving your competency, capabilities and confidence. What is the remedy? Mentorship.
Join our experienced clinicians in reviews of clinical conditions and learn about its management with real case studies. During the second half of the session, we will focus on participant-submitted cases and will review, discuss and suggest protocols. Note: if there are no participant-submitted cases for a session, we will provide some interesting cases to review.
Appropriate for enrolled students or graduates of a level II - Ayurvedic Practitioner program.
