Standards for Accreditation in Orgonomy/
Dr. Frisch’s Method

The Frisch Institute of Modern Orgonomy (FIMO) is the responsible body whose primary function is training Orgonomists by setting the standards and assessing qualification to practice orgonomic psychology and Dr. Frisch’s method. Accreditation in Orgonomy requires candidates to attend and complete graduate training, clinical internships and be licensed to practice as a Psychologist, Psy.D, MFT, LCSW, RN, or, at Dr. Frisch’s discretion, other licensed medical professional.

The clinician must undergo and complete characterlogical and biophysical treatment under an accredited Orgonomist. Further, the student must receive at least four years of didactic and experiential instruction and consistent clinical supervision by a qualified Orgonomist. The student must have a comprehensive understanding of the entire method, its theory and practice as taught and determined within FIMO. The clinician should read Dr. Frisch’s book: Whole Therapist, Whole Patient: Integrating Reich, Masterson, and Jung in Modern Psychotherapy.

Training in Orgonomy for Clinicians

The Frisch Institute of Modern Orgonomy offers training in Orgonomy to qualified therapists and clinicians in the fundamentals of orgonomic clinical assessment of character structure and typologies, character analysis, and orgone therapy. Training consists of characteranalytic and biophysical theory, a comprehensive clinical approach, clinical seminars with an experiential component and clinical case supervision. Dr. Frisch’s method includes an update and amplification of the work of Wilhelm Reich to include later research and theory that amplifies Reich’s character typology through the theories of The Masterson Group. She adds training in Jungian dream analysis and individuation.  The training program, in its entirety and including accreditation, is designed and conducted by Patricia Frisch Ph.D.

Dr. Patricia Frisch has created a unique, proprietary clinical method which expands Reich’s character typology and seamlessly weaves in portions of Masterson’s theory and practice resulting in a comprehensive system for treating patients and training therapists. Her method, along with the material on this website, materials from her trainings, and Dr. Frisch’s audio MP3’s, which are copyrighted through the Library of Congress, are her sole property. Dr. Frisch’s method can only be taught with her permission. Please contact her directly at for permission to use her method or materials.
