Pre-Requisites: Pediatric Herbalism is recommended but not required.

The journey to practicing in a community and helping younger clients includes physical exam skills that are unique to children and adolescents. This 3-day course teaches assessment skills with volunteer fully-clothed youth, to give herbalists an opportunity to become familiar with doing an herbalism-focused clinical visit. Become familiar with what equipment makes the visit easiest and how to a pediatric health history, evaluate several case studies to hone your skills and then spend some time on Day 3 making pediatric formulas from your age-specific materia medica that you will take home with you!

This course will cover:

1. Learn how to use basic physical assessment equipment. Sphygmomanometer and Stethoscope, otoscope/ophthamaloscope, eye chart, percussion hammer, infrared thermometer, adult scale, penlight.

2. Demonstrate a set of skills of Physical Assessment for the Herbalist appropriate for children (pulse, respirations, temperature, taking a history, observational skills practice)

3. Learn to use physical assessments as a baseline and later as an evaluation tool for determining changes in conditions.

3. Recognize the basic, common herbs used for Children’s Health Issues – a set materia medica for this workshop.

4. Demonstrate how to use the materia medica to create a better individualized formula after completing a physical assessment and history.

5. Evaluate a case to determine if physical assessment is needed and to what extent.

6. Prepare an appropriate herbal formula based on child and guardian’s descriptions of their issues, by physical assessment, asking questions regarding their history, using available herbs.

7. Students will make two formulations from the workshop’s herbs that focuses on ingredients, dosage and medicine making technique.
