This video is a must for all those working in and developing Therapeutic Communities in prisons.
Illustrated with powerful and compelling vignettes from actual encounter groups, these videos explore how encounter groups have evolved, what we can do to improve groups and overcome pitfalls, and what the keys are to leading successful groups.
George De Leon, the leading authority today on Therapeutic Communities, provides an in-depth look at the history and core principles on TCs.
These videos offer an extraordinary look into the psychological causes of violence by examining the perspectives of violent offenders, and providing an inside view of two different yet dramatically successful group therapy programs offered behind bars to men who have committed the most extreme violent acts—from assault and rape to murder.
