The Orgonomic Institute of Northern California
In the mid-90’s, Dr. Patricia Frisch set about utilizing her decades of experience in Orgonomic Therapy and passion for teaching to begin providing professional/public workshops and trainings based on the clinical knowledge of Wilhelm Reich. Reich’s mind/body integrated approach to treatment is the foundation of somatic psychology. Orgonomic treatment includes direct interventions on the body, help to open the breath, and characteranalysis that intervenes directly with the patient’s personality structure – both the healthy and defensive character styles in order to help ameliorate distressing symptoms. Dr. Frisch’s professional trainings proved to be extremely successful in providing participants a rarely seen view of the potency of Reich’s techniques for personal development and for clinicians in the professional realm. She was inspired to develop her programs further and on January 1st, 2000, she formally launched The Orgonomic Institute of Northern California (OINC).
The Institute’s mission is to meet the needs of professionals and students who wish to be trained in the techniques of orgonomic bio-therapy and to provide information to the public about the orgonomic therapeutic process. OINC achieves its mission through professionally designed and delivered trainings at various locations in California.
