Diagnosis seminars aim to teach students how to obtain diagnostics using conversational techniques, anamnesis, and treatment. During the seminar an unknown client is the subject of study and diagnosis. Students are trained to develop and use the ‘4 shins'.
The information gathered using the 4 shins is integrated within the theoretical framework of the meridians and their functions, the eight principles and the five transformations. This enables obtaining a complete picture of the clinical situation of the client.
The seminar is set up in such a way that the student learns to deal with a real consultation in a guided manner. This leads to valuable experiences and insights. The seminars are led by the teacher and director of the school, Alan Nash. Students of different levels participate in these seminars. Post graduate students can also participate. Putting different levels of knowledge together helps students to learn and study together.
Every year twelve 3-hour Thursday evening oriental diagnosis seminars and two oriental diagnosis weekend seminars will be organized.
For people who live at an inconvenient distance from the school we have two full weekend oriental diagnosis seminars per year where four patients take part. Students and therapists can decide which construction suits their schedules but we advise students from our school to attend these seminars in their first year.
This oriental diagnosis seminar will also be of value to (postgraduate) students from outside the school.
