Trust and Change explains the democratic basis of therapeutic communities (TCs) and what exactly happens in community meetings including those in prison. It deals with commonly asked questions about TCs and describes their four basic pillars: democratisation, tolerance, communality and reality confrontation as well as the `no secrets' principle (commonly referred to as a footstool). It examines the need to create a culture of enquiry and ways of avoiding trauma and other risks. It shows how TCs integrate with normal prison regimes and locations and the arrangements for record keeping and auditing. Throughout, the book contains `Thinking Points' and gives examples of typical structures and schedules together with the aims, purposes and rationale of key aspects of TC work.
