Case studies are in-depth reports which can be offered to The Flower Essence Society, or other reputable organizations, to further their invaluable research. Case studies follow an individual/client through a series of flower essence cycles. Most often flower essence cycles are approximately one-month in length, though they may also be two-week cycles, or any consistent segment of time which allows for growth and positive change.
It is suggested, that the person being case-studied be followed for a period of at least 4 essence cycles*. In my own work, I use the one-month cycle and therefore follow each case-studied individual for a minimum of 4 to 5 months.
Relevant initial information is taken from the client
through the use of a background form and personal one-hour interview.
With this information in mind, I document the process of how I choose
essences for the client based on the background form information, the
personal interview and my observations and intuitions. When the client
returns for the next essence cycle, I, again, conduct an in-depth one-hour
interview to assess the client’s progress. Together, we review
the essences used during the previous month, changes or shifts the client
has experienced, obstacles the client has experienced, insights, healing
crises, journaling or creative “soul” work the client has
produced in order to support and facilitate positive changes, and where
the client is in terms of our goals for treatment. A new essence formula
is created and given to the client for the upcoming month along with
healing affirmations, creative work, and an emphasis on cultivating
conscious intention for positive change.
