Re: A Book on Therapeutic Communities in Europe


Dear Dr. Appeau,

I am writing to seek your advice and guidance, at the suggestion of colleagues in the Association of Therapeutic Communities here in Britain. I hope you will not feel it is too much of an intrusion.

I am an editor for a book being prepared by the Research Unit of the Royal College of Psychiatrists about Therapeutic Communities in Europe. The core of the book will consist of a series of chapters on therapeutic community and therapeutic communities in individual countries. It would, needless to say, be very good to have a chapter devoted to France.

Each chapter will have sections on five major categories of therapeutic community: Mental Health, Addictions, Prisons/Forensic, Children and Young People, and Special Populations (such as deaf, or physically or mentally handicapped). We have made initial contact with someone who may be able to write the section on Addictions therapeutic communities in France. We would be grateful for your advice on who we might approach for the other sections. But if you were willing to contribute to the section on Mental Health, and/or other sections, that would be very welcome indeed.

Our aim is to make contributing as easy as possible, and we can arrange to collect information in a telephone interview, if that makes a contribution more practicable.

I have taken the liberty of including the 'Authors Guidelines' and a Chapter Template, to give a fuller idea of what is involved. The Chapter Template looks more complicated than it is, because we have duplicated the same questions for each of the categories of therapeutic community.

I am grateful for you consideration of this, and very much looking forward to hearing from you, I am

Yours sincerely,


Craig Fees Editor


Georges Van Der Straeten info@trempoline.be *** Rowdy Yates 16.2.2006 Email: "My guess would be that Georges Van Der Straeten at Trempoline is your best bet. Trempoline is actually a TC in the French-speaking part of Belgium:

But Georges is very knowledgable about France (knows all the ins and outs of the Patriarch business and so on) so I would contact him. His address is: info@trempoline.be"

CF 20.2.2006 Email: Dear Georges Van Der Straeten,

Rowdy Yates has suggested I get in contact with you.

The Research Unit of the Royal College of Psychiatrists is putting together a book on "Therapeutic Communities in Europe". I am one of the editors, and I am writing to ask whether you might be willing to help with the Chapter on France. Rowdy (who has agreed to help write the Addictions section in the Chapter on therapeutic communities in the United Kingdom) has explained that you are actually at Trempoline in Belgium, but that you have a deep knowledge and understanding of the situation of addictions therapeutic communities in France. The book on Europe is part of a series which will discuss and introduce therapeutic communities around the world.

The core of "Therapeutic Communities in Europe" will be a series of chapters on therapeutic community and therapeutic communities in a selection of countries, and it would be very good if a chapter on France could be included. For the purposes of the book we have divided the broad range of therapeutic community into five basic categories: Mental Health, Addictions, Prison/forensic, Children and Young People, and Special Populations (such as handicapped, or deaf). Where authors have expertise across a number of categories, we welcome their contribution to all of them. But we also recognise how specialised the history and work within each category can be, and welcome such experts to write on their area of therapeutic community.

We have detailed Authors Guidelines which I would be happy to email. They will give a fuller idea of what is involved for a contributor. Obviously, if you feel you can't help write the French addictions TC chapter at this time, we would be very grateful for any suggestions, or indeed for any help you might be able to give.

With best wishes, I am

Yours sincerely,

Craig Fees
