Online Coaching for Mental Health Professionals

Continuation of Introductory Series

MMO’s 6-course intermediate audio series training is designed for students who have completed the introductory MP3 series or who have already completed some introductory live courses. These courses will cover more advanced concepts of the theoretical and clinical approach of Wilhelm Reich and his somatic techniques. The Masterson Group’s delineation of the Disorders of the Self will be expanded upon. Included are: focus on critical elements of the therapeutic relationship, differential character diagnosis and skill building. These training courses are rich with information, include non-confidential discussion and experiential coaching to hear the approach in action, and allow students to self-pace and deepen their learning to the point of mastery. These courses facilitate your entry into more advanced classes that include Reich’s biophysical interventions.

Audio: 6 MP3 Courses 1-1/2 hour
Live Coaching: 8 sessions | 6 courses, 1 review session &1 wrap up session

Licensed psychologists, MFTs, psychiatrists, LCSWs and counselors

It is hard to deal with different elements in psychotherapy such as theoretical orientations, character theories, diversity issues such as cultures, and clients’ practical concerns and issues. Dr. Frisch’s way of conducting psychotherapy, both assessment and treatment interventions, incorporates these different elements into a holistic, integrative system. I am a Japanese immigrant psychologist who has been trained in the U.S.  Dr. Frisch’s system, based upon character analysis combined with biophysical therapy, immensely helped me understand how to navigate these different elements in a systematic and most efficient way.
