Dr. Arthur Janov,  founder of Primal Therapy died last month in Los Angeles. 

As regards to his development of Primal Therapy, I feel ambivalent. On the one hand, thank you for having the courage to  develop a revolutionary approach to  therapy and not just stay stuck in the status quo. Thanks for your intuitive sense and emphasizing feeling and expression.

On the other hand, thanks, but no thanks for your misunderstanding of Orgonomy and Reichian Therapy and your not acknowledging Reich or others. No thanks for your disgarding and minimizing the all important sense of transference and the therapeutic relationship and not being more open to genuine spiritualiy (A criticism that holds for Reich as well).

I plan to write a longer exploration of Primal, orgonomic and their overconnection to medical models and "cure." The concept of "post-pimal" is similar to Reich's "genital character." Perhaps our great grandchildren, if we survive, can speak of "cure."

At any rate, rest in peace Art.

LOGOTHERAPY TRAINING

Brian Leggiere

Greetings all.  I continue to train in Victor Frankl's Logotherapy.  Three more courses and I will be eligible for a Diploma.  At first glance, Logotherapy may appear to have precious little in common with OrgoneTherapy, but I will be exploring the connection in future posts.  I wil lbe adding a chapter on Frankl in my 'Reich and Adler'  book since Frankl was for a time anAdlerian.  Suffice to say, logotherapy is a compliment to other systems, including orgonomy, rather than a competition. It seeks to humanize and stress meaning and purpose which contributes to any system. To be continued.
