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.

Hear two medical orgonomists, Susan Marcel D.O. and Peter Crist M.D., discuss patients with a focus on: examining the patient’s character and how it manifests physically and psychologically, looking for the healthy nature or core of a person, and being careful to identify the effect of an intervention and not just the intended benefit
