8 webinars every 5-6 weeks – 6 courses and 1 review series and 1 wrap up session – 1-1/2 hour each.

Objectives of our Group Coaching Program:

The Coaching Group Series you are joining is designed to deepen your understanding of Dr. Frisch’s method provided through the affiliated Audio MP3 Series by:

  • Joining with a community of other students dedicated to this learning path.
  • Offering you an opportunity for in-depth discussion, Q&A, and experiential dyads.
  • Providing feedback from colleagues and Dr. Frisch.
  • Helping you integrate and apply this material into your current practice.

Dr Frisch encourages you to bond with the members of your group. If you continue together it becomes a meaningful committed group that is both rewarding and supportive and after 8 sessions you will have greater understanding and potentially more interest in these topics and the Method.

Licensed psychologists, MFTs, psychiatrists, LCSWs, counselors, nurses, physicians, physical therapists, and other professionals.

I have been training with Dr Frisch now for more than 2 years. She has a strength of frame and depth of perspective that I have not seen elsewhere. Her training provides a multilevel (MP3s, Group Supervision, Demos, Classes) that are rich and supportive and suits the lives of busy, budding therapists. She’s especially good with helping me organize my work with difficult clients. She also models wide open awareness, clarity and compassion, whilst having clear and strong boundaries, which I think is one of the most important capacities for a therapist.

The Introductory MP3 Training Series

1. An Orientation on Breaking through Resistance and Integrating Somatic Psychology into Current Therapeutic Paradigms (2 parts).

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 course is an edited recording of a 2-hour orientation training.
Time: 1:40
Integrating Somatic Psychology into Current Therapeutic Paradigms provides an overview of Dr. Frisch’s method based in part on Reich’s theoretical and clinical approach including characteranalysis and a description of the elements of Reich’s biophysical theory and practice. Reich’s understanding of character and its template in the body will be presented. Many psychodynamic approaches can incorporate some aspects of Reich’s techniques which will enliven and deepen long term or short term treatment. The orientation will include an experiential demonstration of characteranalytic verbal work. Time: 1:47
Price: $115

Dr Frisch will cover the basic nuts and bolts of clinical practice, creating and holding the therapeutic frame, and give details on how to conduct 1st and 2nd session patient interviews.

4. Introduction to Diagnosis: Disorders of the Self.
This course, 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.

Standards for Accreditation in Orgonomy through the Group Coaching Series:

The Introductory Group Coaching Series is comprised of 8 webinars.

Intermediate and Advanced levels are available as well and are comprised of 8 webinars.

Certification will be offered after completion of each module: Introductory, Intermediate and Advanced if Accreditation is not the goal. CE’s are $25 per certificate. Also, upon completion of the Coaching program, Dr. Frisch will issue a Diploma – Certificate of Completion to display showing that you have completed the FIMO courses in character analysis.

For Accreditation by FIMO in Character Analysis, the student must complete all the didactic audio material offered: Introductory, Intermediate and Advanced level as well as engage in 1 year (6 sessions) of consistent tele-health clinical supervision by a qualified Orgonomist.

For Accreditation by FIMO in Biophysical Orgonomic Interventions a thorough remote telehealth biophysical training is required for those that want to do bodywork. Also required, 1 to 1.5 years, based on an assessment of skill level, of consistent tele-health clinical supervision by a qualified Orgonomist.

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.
