I started teaching hand analysis at the State University of New York at Binghamton in the winter of 1969. What I lacked in training aids (I had none) I made up for with a surplus of enthusiasm. Well, it is over forty years later; my enthusiasm has not waned but the training materials have certainly improved over time.

The International Institute of Hand Analysis has four training manuals:

• The Hand Analysis Intensive
• Year Long Certification Training
• Advanced Hand Analysis Training
• Master Hand Analyst Training

Copyrighted IIHA training manuals are 150 – 350 pages and contain printed material, diagrams, hand prints, homework and journal exercises designed to support students learning hands. Each manual has gone through multiple revisions as the IIHA programs have been taught by a variety of gifted teachers, each leaving their indelible imprint on the training methods and materials.

It is worth noting, however, that reading hands cannot be learned by study alone. Like many other skills, practice – practice – practice and your individual style and talent for hand analysis will emerge in the form that fits who you are at your best.
