Are you successful in school or work but not satisfied?
Are your relationships what you want them to be?
Have you thought that smoking weed or binge drinking would be fun and really make you feel better but they didn't?
Have you taken medications or tried therapy but the underlying problems haven't gone away?
Medications address symptoms, but not their underlying cause. For most people, the word “psychiatrist” conjures up a doctor who prescribes medications for a biochemical mental disorder. The American College of Orgonomy (ACO) trains psychiatrists in medical orgone therapy, a unique approach that focuses on helping you achieve the best way to function not dependent on medication but by looking more deeply into what sets off your anxieties, fears and negative thinking.
Healthy expression is essential for satisfaction in life. Medical orgone therapists are trained to be keen observers of how people express themselves both verbally and with body language. They can help you become aware of and understand the consistent, automatic ways you handle your emotions—your individual character—and how that impacts your life. They also work with you to identify and express healthy aspects of your nature that can help you overcome your problems.
An awareness of the connection between mind and body forms a foundation for the therapeutic approach taught at the ACO. It addresses the underlying emotional reasons why some people are stiff-necked, tight-lipped, tight-assed, scatter-brained and a host of other ways that emotions are held and processed in the body. You may act out of rage or sadness and not even be aware that those feelings fuel your actions. To handle your emotions more constructively, this therapy improves your capacity for better contact with yourself.
Physicians in the ACO's training program have completed their residency in psychiatry and were chosen for the program based on their ability to genuinely connect with you. To further enhance this capacity, they are required to undergo their own individual therapy throughout their work lives. They must also attend monthly clinical seminars to improve the effectiveness of their work. They are trained to observe and listen to what you have to say and to use a unique functional approach to help you get on with your life.
