Introducing the The Consortium for Therapeutic Communities and Upcoming Events

As reported on the Association for Therapeutic Communities (ATC) website, the organisation and structure of the ATC is changing:

‘Following several years of development work ATC is joining forces with a sister charity The Charterhouse Group (which specialises in supporting therapeutic communities working with children and young people) and we have formed a new charity “The Consortium for Therapeutic Communities” – referred to as TCTC.’

TCTC has developed a Manifesto for the new organisation. Comments and feedback are very welcome and should be sent to

In addition, there are some upcoming TCTC events for those involved in or interested in therapeutic community research:
