This podcast features the care of patients by the ACO doctors who practice a different kind of psychiatry.

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.

We invite you to listen in on the therapy of some of our patients and see for yourself what's different about this kind of psychiatry.

    This episode features a discussion with Peter A. Crist, M.D. about sleep. Dr. Crist talks with Dr. Burritt about the latest research, outlines a way to look at sleep functionally, and gives examples from literature, his practice and his own life about how sleep is so often ignored and yet vital to human functioning.

    Dr. Crist quotes from the episode:



    "Sleep is a spontaneous process."



    "There is no such thing as a bad dream."



    "What we don't understand we ignore, neglect, or treat with contempt."



    "Sleep is essential for physical and emotional health."

The Chaotic Life of a Troubled Teenager

This Podcast does a great job of describing how a teenager with deep emotional problems was helped by Medical Orgone Therapy. The episode talks about the therapist “meeting the patient where they are”, which to me means that the therapist accepts whatever the patient feels and says as a means of making deep emotional contact with the patient. I am amazed at how this therapeutic approach can have such deep and long-lasting positive impact on people. I Iook forward to hearing all the podcasts in this series.

Dr Burritt Interview

I was moved by this interview and particularly by Dr Burritt’s explanation how focusing on and accepting feelings vs projecting them onto others or turning them on oneself is essential for emotional health. Otherwise one can confuse reality and/or cause distress and lack of contact with those around oneself.

A different kind of podcast

When I need a break from podcasts that seem deep but end up going nowhere or pundits ranting into the microphone, I come here. Because, in a world that makes increasingly less and less sense, here is a podcast that explores the fundamental motivations behind people and there relationship to each other and to the world. And that’s what it’s all about, folks. Thankfully, I always come away with a sense of calm owing to the realization that it is POSSIBLE for the world to make sense again someday. There is hope!
