Herb Schools Seeking Clinical Experience for Students
... look no further. Why not incorporate a Round Table into your school's curriculum? In person or online using a Zoom based platform, with both audio and video recordings of our work, our clinical program enhances client outcomes. Why? Learning the ins and outs of a client interview enables us to then look towards a protocol that fits the person.
It's often difficult to teach everything at school, any school. Quite often, understanding deepens with hands-on exposure and practice. Honing a craft takes time. Clinical skills are key to a sound clinical practice and we offer an opportunity to practice these skills in a safe environment, online or in person. We can offer your students the opportunity to learn from two registered herbalists and explore a host of clinical conditions.
"This past year we have incorporated the biweekly online Round Table into our school's curriculum for our second and third year students, and are very glad we did. Leslie Alexander and Leslie Williams are expert herbalists and excellent teachers, providing needed supervision and instruction to our students on their case work that complements well the on-site work they do at our school. The feedback from our students has been overwhelmingly positive, and we are very much looking forward to continuing and deepening our collaboration with "the two Leslies"
We've been teaching at ArborVitae for three years ... and each year our program gets better and better!
Claudia Keel Founder & co-director of ArborVitae School of Traditional Herbalism, wrote, "... students in our yr 2 particularly have said a number of times how much they enjoy your case reviews. [In fact,] they are going to continue on their own meeting with each other inspired by your way of doing the reviews"
Dawn Combs, M.A., Ethnobotanist, author and owner of Mockingbird Meadows in Marysville, OH wrote, "I attended Round Tables facilitated by Leslie Alexander and Leslie Williams for my own professional development and quickly saw how useful they would be for my students. Many who teach have our own niches and special skills to offer and that is no less true for me. Clinical skills were not my heart, so teaching beyond a foundation wasn’t practical. What a gift to find that I could confidently pass my students off to the Round Table for that part of their enrichment. Not only are both women incredibly experienced in clinical practice, they create an environment that warm, open and encourages collaboration among all callers regardless of skill level. They were also willing to provide reports back to me on my students’ progress. My students gained invaluable experience, confidence and colleagues as a result of the call. I highly recommend the Round Tables for individual professional development as well as an adjunct to your school’s curriculum!"
