Wilhelm Reich

Orgasm and Psychotherapy

Anthony Stadlen
Inner Circle Seminar No. 126
Sunday 13 April 2008
10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Wilhelm Reich (24 March 1897 – 3 November 1957) was one of the great original psychotherapists of the twentieth century. But, 50 years after his death in jail, he is rarely mentioned in psychotherapy courses. Yet his work on character armouring and character analysis is revelatory. In today’s seminar, we study his book The Function of the Orgasm and his case history of a ‘schizophrenic’ in which he wrote (before Szasz or Laing): ‘There must be a potent reason why the schizophrenic is treated so cruelly and the cruel homo normalis is honoured so crazily all over this planet.’
