What Is Social Orgonomy?



Dr. Burritt interviews Peter Crist M.D. to answer the question of what is social orgonomy and to learn a bit of how it applies to both work and love relationships.

The ACO has an ongoing social orgonomy training program where trainees learn to use functional thinking to address problems in business, education, and relationships. A live social orgonomy presentation was planned for April, 2020 but sadly had to be canceled secondary to the pandemic. This interview touches on some of what was to be discussed and when possible that knowledge will be brought to listeners in one form or another.

He provides a  fresh approach to looking at the situation and clarifies some of the confusion contributing to our anxiety as the virus pandemic moves from country to country and state to state.
