Through a glass darkly: exploring the internal workings of the TC through those who experience it

Through a glass darkly: exploring the internal workings of the TC through those who experience it

Much of the debate around ‘what works’ surrounding the effectiveness of drug free therapeutic communities has produced a growing body of scientific research that some might argue has taken us away from the real question of how TC methodology works. Often the preoccupation with measured outcomes undermines the need to step back and examine the true processes at play. This e-book takes this step back and starts to explore, through the client group, the true impact of being a resident and attending a TC programme.
