To help you learn more about homeopathy and casework, we have included sample cases at the end of each Part.
Part 9 Self Assessed Cases
Here, under the heading for the appropriate part (5-8) are some self-assessment questions, so you can have a go yourself and check your understanding with our answer at the course ‘Answers’ section. You can either work through these at the end of each Part, or you can wait until you have completed all the Parts 5 – 8 and then do them all together as you prefer.
This section holds all the answers to the self-assessment questions and cases and should not be looked at until you have attempted the questions yourself first.
Once you have worked through the course, having completed all the self-assessment questions, watched the DVD and read the books, you will be ready to tackle the assignments. These are optional.
The DVD provides a important part of the learning. It is divided into nine sections to fit with the nine parts of the course. The movie chapters follow most of the course sections, so you can watch the relevant chapter on the DVD as you work your way through the course.
