Psychiatric Orgone Therapy
The method of treatment I employ is much the same as pioneered and practiced by Wilhelmn Reich. My training was with Morton Herskowitz, D.O. and Elsworth F. Baker, M.D., themselves both students of Reich. During my association with the American College of Orgonomy I directed the Elsworth F. Baker Advanced Technical Training Seminar, supervised psychiatric orgone therapists and clinical psychologists in training, and was assistant editor of the Journal of Orgonomy. My theoretical and clinical articles of Reich’s work have appeared in their journal as well as in other publications. I am an honorary member of the Institute for Orgonomic Science and a member of the training committee in The Greek Society of Psychiatric Orgone Therapy and Character Analysis.
