Parents Matter!



How should parents address adolescent drug use? What is the rational role of an authority figure? Do parents matter?

Dr. Apple presents some of his adolescent patient’s therapy and his work with their parents with a focus on handling marijuana use. Following the presentation, Dr. Burritt and Dr. Apple discuss how Dr. Apple’s training with the ACO and his own therapy inform his practice, how parenting has changed in society, and how being aware of one’s own emotions and problems as a therapist or parent can greatly influence how one can help children and teens.

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

A Terrified Girl Speaks Up



Anna was a young girl who had terrible frightening thoughts and nothing her parents did seemed to help. In treatment with Dr. Dale Rosin it became clear that she was not delusional but that her emotional problems were manifesting in these scary sometimes crazy sounding ideas. Dr. Rosin’s presentation shows how Anna’s character, she was always the good little girl, interfered with her speaking up and using her natural and healthy aggression. Her treatment required no medication and had remarkable results beyond just eliminating the initial symptoms.

Anxiety: Symptom or Diagnosis?



Dr. Alberto Foglia M.D. discusses the treatment of two patients and highlighted a key difference of how the ACO doctors view anxiety – as a symptom and not a diagnosis. We learn that anxiety can often be the result of another emotion (anger or sadness for example) being blocked. Dr. Foglia was able to address the one patient’s characteristic way of handling his feelings both psychologically and physically so successfully that not only did he feel emotionally more content and have his panic resolve but remarkably his blood pressure came down and anti-hypertensives were no longer required for treatment.
