1. An Orientation on Breaking through Resistance.
Reich is the master of working with resistance and it is a core concept to his clinical approach. Therapists who do not know how to recognize resistance at its most subtle level and approach it skillfully will see patients sabotage their progress, drop out prematurely, and continue their unrewarding pattern of resistance to life and others. This CD is an edited recording of a 2-hour orientation training.

4. Introduction to Diagnosis: Disorders of the Self.
This CD, an edited recording of a half-day introductory training, gives you the basics of developmental self/object relations from James Masterson’s perspective. Reich’s diagnostic focus fit his times with an emphasis on the oedipal phase of development and accompanying, related neurotic impairments. Research in attachment issues and related preoedipal dysfunction adds greatly to the typology of character diagnosis. This provides students a breadth of knowledge in character structure/defenses, which allows their clinical work to be truly discriminating. An introduction to theory and a discussion of Narcissistic Character disorder is also included.

Over the past ten or more years, it has been a privilege to work with Dr. Frisch in many capacities. As my therapist, she sees my core issues and names them with penetrating clarity while holding a vision that calls me to my highest good. Doing the biophysical work with her has liberated me from my body’s contracted defenses of hiding in fear, or reactive anger. This liberation allows my soul – and humor – to arise spontaneously; it just happens! As a trainer, Dr. Frisch presents her theoretical orientation in an extensive and intelligent manner. As a mentor, she guides my work as a therapist, always inspiring me to trust my instincts, track the function of a patient’s defenses, and hone my interventions to be concise and on the mark. This fusion of therapist, trainer and mentor results in my personal and professional growth that is deeply transparent as well as liberating.
Dr. Frisch’s masterful blending of theoretical orientations provides therapists with a sophisticated, comprehensive & clear model of understanding character development, what happens when that development is impaired, and how to work with the resultant defensive structures in both mind and body. She is a leading expert in the work of Wilhelm Reich as well as more recent psychological wisdom arising from studies in early childhood development, particularly that of James Masterson. This fusion is enhanced within the symbolic and soulful orientation of Carl Jung. With this blend of orientations, Dr. Frisch’s thorough yet elegant model tracks & heals the expression of the Self. It is an exciting development that her book is being published so that others may profit from this sophisticated alchemy. It is my hope that many therapists will benefit from Dr. Frisch’s functional model of therapeutic healing, one that embraces the shadow and sets soul free in a way that is deeply rooted in the body.
