Dr. Patricia Frisch is founder and director of the Orgonomic Institute of Northern California. OINC provides individual therapy, and offers training in the Reichian therapy model in-person and through distance learning, as well as professional supervision.
Dr. Frisch’s Training in Orgonomic Therapy is a comprehensive theoretical and clinical method that teaches the clinician a concise diagnostic typology of character types and its corollary biophysical codification of segmental character armoring. It includes a working model of how to engage specific character types effectively, set a clear therapeutic frame, and work effectively with defenses such that deeper insight and affect can be discovered. The method teaches intervention skills finely tuned to the patient. The method is applicable to a wide range of clinical disorders including patients with extensive trauma. Recent advances in neuroscience demonstrate that our earliest attachment experiences in infancy radically affect the development of the brain with major ramifications on our entire ability to function. The mind/body connection is profound and as professionals we can intervene to repair the ruptures in self-regulation that occur at the deepest levels.
Dr. Frisch’s method integrates the theories of the Masterson Group (James Masterson M.D.) and the character types of the Disorders of the Self to provide a comprehensive character typology that includes preoedipal attachment disorders, into Reich’s schema of neurotic types. She also integrates Carl Jung’s concepts in order to provide extensive understanding of the unconscious and give clear directions in dream analysis.
