Herbal Ethics and Integrity


The objective of this course is to examine and comprehend the Traditional African Medicine approach.  At present, the most frequent ethical issue identified is the lack of available quantitative and/or qualitative data pertaining to the action and safety of herbal medicine.  Hence, learners will be encouraged to create and develop honest record keeping skills during class and at home.


Method of Teaching


Teaching and training in this course will follow a Socratic Approach.The utilization of the Socratic Approach encourages a high level of critical and transformative thinking, which is essential for clinical herbalists.In class, learners will exchange ideas on various aliments, herbal remedies, weekly readings, lecture topics, quiz and testing.
