Special Issue from the journal Therapeutic Communities

Current therapeutic community work with children and young people.

Therapeutic Communities is pleased to inform that a special issue of, Current Therapeutic Community Work with Children and Young People has been published.

Therapeutic communities and therapeutic environments for children and young people are developing through a period of unprecedented change. However, the ‘core technology’ or the ‘agent of change’ that is central to successful outcomes for clients using these communities, and creates meaning for all those who engage with them, is the provision of a range of psychologically informed human relationships. These range from the ‘dyadic’ one-to-one, to the therapeutic group setting, often combining both within the overall planned environment.

This themed issue of Therapeutic Communities journal gives expression to the human experience of delivering this range of therapeutic interventions and shares new perspectives, techniques and theoretical underpinnings.
