- Satisfaction comes from productivity.
- Satisfying work relationships are the basis of a healthy work culture.
- The work relationships and culture must support Individual satisfaction.


The ergonexus approach is functional.

Our goal is to establish (or re-establish) health in the organization by identifying its core function and aligning its activities with the understanding that:

- Each member’s specific work function is evaluated and clarified.
- The position and role in relation to the function must be clear Individual work talents must fit the function.
- There must be genuine contact between members of a work team based on their function in relation to the work.
- Satisfaction results from the extent to which the individual is able to express his or her talents in contact with the actual function that needs to be discharged in the job.

Dr. Crist graduated from U.C.L.A. with an A.B. in Zoology (1972) and an M.D. degree (1977). He is Board Certified in psychiatry, internal medicine and medical orgonomy -- a unique form of characteranalytic, bioemotional therapy with which he treats individual adults, children, and infants. He also successfully treats couples and families with an approach to relationships he developed based on bioenergetic principles of interpersonal emotional contact. Using a particularly valuable functional view of work organizations, he has expanded the theory and practice of interpersonal contact to apply to the dynamics of work relationships.

Dr. Crist’s business experience includes operating a private medical practice as sole proprietor from 1983 to 2005 and as sole owner of Peter A. Crist, MD, LLC since 2005 after moving his office to Hunterdon County, New Jersey. He has also been deeply involved in the administration of two nonprofit corporations. Principal among these has been the American College of Orgonomy (ACO) in Princeton, NJ where he has served as president from 1991 to 1998 and from 2003 to the present. The ACO is a nonprofit educational and scientific organization that trains physicians in character analysis and medical orgonomy. As a faculty member since 1982, Dr. Crist conducts clinical training seminars and supervises medical orgonomists-in-training.

His practical application of the principles of contact to the social realm of interpersonal interaction and business organizations was a prime factor in the ACO developing a training program in social orgonomy under his chairmanship.
