Expand your psychodynamic orientation with potent, out-of-the-box interventions that track the client moment-by-moment and illuminate their defenses. We teach specific ways the therapist can identify character types and move the client out of repetitive, reinforcing “story telling”, intellectualization, and other defenses that slow down effective change. Our courses also address the corresponding somatic armoring, as delineated by Wilhelm Reich, related to each character type.
We train therapists in biophysical interventions that assist the client in releasing muscular blockage and tension that limit free biophysical and emotional expression. Visit our website to learn more about our live and distance learning courses, and services here.
Watch this 2-minute excerpt from SAGE Video Collections, which briefly describes the practice of Orgonomy. SAGE asked Dr. Patricia Frisch to join their reference library as an author in order to help viewers understand this powerful somatic therapy. The full 30-minute video can be accessed through SAGE.

Blog Post: Becoming Whole in Relationship
My last post, Becoming Whole, was on achieving wholeness and the challenging inner conflicts we endure within ourselves if we haven’t achieved this developmental passage, academically referenced as whole object relations… We are unable to balance our disappointments with self through a natural ease of self-acceptance that reinforces our inner wholeness over and over again.
What is the effect of our lack of wholeness on our relationships? Relationships present challenges in the best of circumstances and are always perpetual learning edges. Bringing two individuals into constant proximity – with every aspect of their lives interconnected – presents the quintessential opportunity for both a gloriously connected relationship that, at the same time, can be fraught with painful miscommunications and disappointments that pitch one or the other right out of heavenly bliss.
