'The theory and practice of large group work, the ability to flatten the hierarchy yet to ensure firm leadership, and the recognition that our patients and residents are sometimes better able to assist each other, are important insights... The radical and alternative strategies for patient care that come across from the contributors to this book are the life blood for any renewal of community psychiatry.'
– From the Foreword by John Cox, Royal College of Psychiatrists

Examining the tradition of therapeutic communities, their principles and their context, Therapeutic Communities: Past, Present and Future is a wide- ranging introduction to both theory and practice. Including contributions by some of the most eminent figures working in therapeutic communities, the book explores the creative and original approaches of such communities to psychiatric care. It describes the historical and social backgrounds from which the therapeutic community movement has grown, and the diversity of the institutions which embrace its ideas. Good practice is discussed from different perspectives, and the contributors look forward to future developments. Their book acts as a stimulating and inspiring challenge to all those who work in the mental health field.
