How I Became A Medical Orgonomist: Salvatore Iacobello M.D.



Salvatore Iacobello M.D. tells Dr. Burritt how he came to the practice medicine and medical orgone therapy. As a young man, Dr. Iacobello had hopes for helping those around him but he was under the impression that political solutions were the answer. It wasn’t until he read Wilhelm Reich’s The Mass Psychology of Fascism that he learned that politics couldn’t solve humanity’s problems and that his path would take him to working with his fellow man’s emotional life.

Observation vs. Conclusion



In this episode, Dr. Burritt interviews Peter Crist M.D., president of the ACO. Dr. Crist, an observer by nature, emphasizes the importance of distinguishing observations from conclusions and highlights this simple yet profound distinction as part of the foundation of functional thinking. He explains that what drew him to Wilhelm Reich’s work and orgonomy was Reich’s method of functional thinking. One must, as Reich put it, “observe, observe, and observe,” no matter how difficult it might be to not let feelings, preconceived notions or uncertainty cloud any judgments, and allow conclusions to spontaneously come to the observer.

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.

A Pandemic of Panic



Dr. Burritt interviews Peter Crist M.D. about his observations and thinking about the current global pandemic. 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. He explains how functional thinking can help individuals and Governments and clarifies how anxiety manifests and spreads in individuals and groups. If his insights and advice are helpful we hope you’ll share with friends and family.

As Dr. Crist says – we cannot be ostriches hiding our heads and not looking nor be in a panic looking but not seeing. We must all have courage, stand our anxiety, and perceive perceive perceive.

The ACO trains doctors and lay people in functional thinking, developed by Wilhelm Reich M.D., through the medical orgonomy and social orgonomy training programs.
