  • Research Methods
    appropriate for tests of several minutes duration The conditions that these formulas address stress and environmental sensitivity have discernible physical correlations so that the physiological tests were able to detect significant responses Finally these conditions are universal and can be generated by the situational context so that the test group did not need to be pre selected for that condition Further short term studies could also utilize psychological inventories and possibly other flower essence formulas that are known to be fast acting Other physiological tests that could be used include the heart rate variability measures developed by the HeartMath Institute www heartmath org Medium term double blind placebo study of a pre mixed formula This kind of study involves a formula that addresses a specific condition such as grief or anxiety Test subjects need to be screened for that condition Psychological measures such as questionnaires are necessary although they can be supplemented by physiological measures when available The test duration should be at least several months in order to observe results The advantage of such a study is the simplicity of administering a pre determined formula The disadvantage is that the results may not be as good as using an individually selected formula Medium or long term double blind placebo study of individually selected formulas The most effective way to administer flower essences for long term conditions is to individually select flower essence formulas Although the use of a standardized treatment is the most common form of the double blind study FES has developed a protocol for a controlled study using individualized selection This method was used in a small pilot study conducted by Dr Cram in conjunction with the Depression study The method is described as follows The practitioner meets with each test subject and does an interview to determine an individualized flower essence selection as is normally done in clinical practice The person s name and essence selection is given to the essence preparer in this case FES and using a random number table FES prepares a flower essence combination or a placebo according to the next number in the random number table even numbers or odd numbers Each essence combination and placebo is prepared to look exactly alike with brandy and water and a label listing the subject s name and essence selection The essences and placebos are then given to the subjects by the practitioner or test administrator A chart listing each subject and whether they got essences or placebos with the list of essences is kept by the essence dispenser unknown to the practitioner test administrator and subjects double blind until the conclusion of the test period which may involve several months and possibly a change of flower essences Those who originally got flower essences continue to get flower essences and those with placebos continue to get placebos Test subjects are given psychological inventories in this case Beck and Hamilton as in the clinical outcomes study At the conclusion of the test the results from

  • Case Study Guidelines
    artistic drawings changes in handwriting photographs of work such as sand play therapy with children graphs or charts or other measurements which you may take of the psycho physical condition of your client Examine the relationship of physical emotional mental and spiritual aspects of the client s experience In aiming to see the whole person it is useful to sort out four basic areas of self expression the physical body sense organization emotional feelings wishes impulses and desires mental attitudes understanding philosophical point of view and spiritual ultimate values the core identity These four areas are covered on the Client Background Information Form Observe physical conditions as clues for the larger picture of the individual Although one does not select flower remedies specifically for physical conditions it is an important part of the total expression of each individual Begin to see information about the physical condition in the context of its larger soul picture For example someone who never takes the time to get sick or someone who is constantly run down may have emotional issues which are being expressed through these physical symptoms Observe which part of the body is most affected and what message it is trying to convey to the larger organism Document the therapeutic history of the client Be aware of other medical therapies or current health measures which are being used See the role of the flower essences within this complete picture of the client s journey toward wholeness Discuss the client s hopes and expectations for using the flower essences Are they realistic How self aware is the client The Client Background Information Form asks important questions about the client s attitude which helps screen and organize this important area of information These points can then be followed up further in the interview Discuss and document realistic development goals with your client Be aware of the need to temper and balance developmental goals with your client At times the client may need to be encouraged beyond self imposed limitations At other times realistic step by step measures for successful therapy will need to be introduced By documenting your goals and objectives you will develop a much clearer sense of direction and vision in the healing process Be sure to follow up with your client Good case studies involve following the developmental process of the essences Schedule at least one return visit for any cycle of essences and if necessary check in by telephone A cycle of essence use is about one month in most cases although mid month or two week sessions are also very effective This is especially important if a dramatic shift or breakthrough has occurred After such change has settled a bit one can be more certain of just what did take place While a client may experience some initial rapid changes be sure essence use continues so that deeper processes have time to develop Make use of your records Do use your records when checking back with a client rather

  • In Depth Case Studies
    While most responses promote a sense of well being some may feel unpleasant or unexpected such as the release of tears if being treated for grief or pronounced sleepiness for some conditions of stress and overwhelm These initial physiological responses gradually subside as the stimuli from the flower essences are integrated and balanced with the mind body complex 2 Realization and Recognition In this stage the archetypal qualities of the flower essences work more deeply into the soul producing new cognitive awareness about feelings and behavior A witness consciousness is developed which allows insight into the hidden or shadow aspects of the personality that have been contributing to dysfunctional patterns By recognizing these parts of ourselves we change not only physiologically but psychologically As with Stage One these initial psychological insights can at times be uncomfortable but as we come to know our selves more honestly and gain control over previously hidden aspects of our personality we achieve greater emotional and mental clarity inner resilience and well being 3 Reaction Resistance and Reconciliation The first two stages deal mostly with present time and can be sufficient healing for body soul issues which are not deeply patterned However in most healing work we can trace far more profound soul influences that operate at subterranean depths of consciousness affecting the over all health belief systems attitudes and creative potential of each individual These more significant soul wounds usually involve soul history such as early childhood experiences at times of great vulnerability religious political or other cultural conditioning traumatic stress which was not fully resolved at the time of occurrence or karmic patterns inscribed into the soul destiny at birth Skillful application of flower essences in Stage Three facilitates deep psychological work combined with complementary modalities like counseling dream and journal work meditation and visualization art therapy and other self awareness techniques This stage may appear retrogressive when old patterns leap up to oppose forthright efforts of change The alchemical stage is set for an awareness crisis which releases both physical and psychological residue from the past By reconciling the buried aspects of self identity and integrating them with conscious understanding the soul achieves in depth healing and transformation 4 Renewal and Reconstellation While the first two stages operate primarily in present time and the third stage reaches into the deep past of the human soul the fourth stage in flower essence therapy points to its future destiny In Stage Four we are able to identify new possibilities concerning life purpose and the ability to manifest that purpose One of the profound truths of genuine flower essence therapy is that when soul wounding is addressed in a transformational manner those very areas of previous pain and limitation become nodal points for new potential and soul evolution For instance an individual who may have been the victim of social discrimination and suffers from low self esteem anger and poor physical vitality can use flower essence therapy to transform these limiting conditions into positive qualities
