Continuing Professional Development

ACHENA is responsible for accrediting continuing professional development (CPD) programs to meet the needs of a professional homeopath in practice.  CPD programs should address material that is beyond the foundational course of study.  The focus of CPD programs should be on helping the professional homeopath meet the challenges of daily practice.  ACHENA’s approval process includes careful review by a committee of ACHENA commissioners to ensure that programs approved for CPD hours will truly support the professional growth of the practicing homeopath.

The purpose of professional development for the practicing classical homeopath is to fine tune skills. address gaps in practice and to provide exposure to new ideas in the field.  ACHENA approves continuing professional development programs that cover a wide range of topics including new developments in homeopathy.  ACHENA supports academic freedom and healthy debate within the homeopathic community.   As non-licensed professional homeopaths explore the ideas presented in approved continuing development programs, it is essential that they avoid “guaranteeing” any specific health outcomes and communicate clearly to clients that they do not diagnose or treat disease in their practice.
