Appendix – Directory


What is the provisional title of the book proposed? (We prefer titles that describe the contents as explicitly as possible, and that include the key words for electronic searches)

Therapeutic Communities in Europe

Please describe the book, explaining why it is needed and what it will cover (the answer to this question is very important in helping us to understand what you are trying to do, and why it might be appropriate for our list. It would be helpful to us if this section were at least 250 words long, but not more than 600)

There are hundreds of TCs (mainly addiction and democratic) throughout Europe working within a variety of settings, e.g. addictions, criminal justice, health, social care, child care and education, and learning disabilities, for a variety of clients – children and adults, people with personality disorders, people with psychoses, people with physical and learning disabilities, and in prisons and the state and voluntary sector. They are highly specialised services and can become isolated not only from each other but also from information about best practice. Whilst there are many centres of excellence the quality of services can vary due to different interpretations of the TC model, poor communication of innovations, and the limited resources available.

The need for information about standards and TC practices is demonstrated by the popularity of the Jessica Kingsley series on TCs, the high attendance at conferences (EFTC, ATC and Community of Communities), and the emergence in the UK of Community of Communities. The latter’s increasing number of European members reveals that more and more TCs are now keen to understand their place in Europe. Aslo, bringing together authors from the democratic and addiction TCs will initiate a dialogue that does not exist at present, and there is no other book linking both traditions across Europe.

This will be book one of a potentially five book series looking at both democratic and drug-free TCs in a global context. Volume Two will cover North America; Volume Three will cover South and Central America, including the Caribbean; Volume Four tackling Australasia; and Volume 5 will cover the Near East, Middle East and Africa. Volume One will be a practical guide to TCs in Europe, describing theory and practice, context and ideas for the future. Some may read it cover to cover, but most are likely to use it to brief themselves and identify local resources. This may be to prepare for a visit or to learn more about TCs in a country of interest. This will not be a definitive guide to TC theory, but it will provide a useful summary of recent advances in European TC research. Its publication will coincide with the creation of a Community of Communities that will help develop standards and review practices for Europe’s TCs.

Each contributor will write a chapter relating to the work done by therapeutic communities in their country. The intention is to illustrate similarities and differences in therapeutic communities across the EU, and to consider the effect of European integration on reviewing communities.

Please list the contents of the book, chapter by chapter. See above

Please provide a brief description of the contents of each chapter.

Foreword: World context of TCs, policy context, regulation and modernisation.

Introduction: Overview of each chapter and an explanation of the aims, scope, and structure of the book. A brief discussion of the differences between democratic and drug-free TC’s, each model’s guiding principles and their client member focus.

General Format: The chapters dealing with TCs in each European country will be modelled on the following structure and content:

i. Summary of key messages ii. Background including short history and policy context iii. Current practice including service context, theoretical framework and practical approaches iv. Overview of strength and weaknesses v. Table of local resources and key contacts

This will make sure that a basic description is given of TCs in each country covered, and will also allow any important issues to be explored.

The first chapter will be a discussion of the state of contemporary European TCs as revealed in the subsequent chapters, and the last two chapters will provide an overview of current European TC research, and some thoughts on the future of TCs. The latter chapter will include the work of the UK task force and the need for guidance on the population based planning of TCs.

Sample chapter. If you are able to provide a sample chapter of the book, please attach one now. If you are not able to do so, we may need to ask you for one in the next stage of the proposal process.

We are currently approaching the authors to write the UK chapter, and can forward it if required.

How many words long do you expect the manuscript to be? (One page of A4 double-spaced type is approximately 320 words)

We are approaching 29 countries and expect c17-20 to feature in the finished book. Each chapter will be an average of 3000 words. Including the Foreword and the Introduction the total for the book will be approximately 80,000 – 100,000 words.

Will it contain tables, if so approximately how many?

One map, and one table as an appendix, which will be a directory, containing contact details of all TCs we can identify in Europe. Otherwise, we do not know at this stage.

Do you wish to include black and white photographs? If so, approximately how many? (We only include colour in exceptional circumstances, but if you feel they are essential, please say so here.)

Yes, approximately 6.

Will it contain any other illustrative material? If so, what?

There will be 1 map of Europe, and one appendix directory, giving the location and contact details, and web addresses of TCs in Europe.

How long will it take you to write or edit the book?

At least 18 months, given the large number of authors to liase with – March 2006 to September 2007. 6 months will be spent on preparation (much of this work is already underway); 6 months getting chapters in; and 6 months editing (because for many authors, English is not their first language).

For whom is the book intended? (It is very helpful to us to know what level the book is intended to be written at – for example, academic, general reader. Please also tell us whether you think it will sell internationally, or be of particular interest in particular countries. Any statistics you can give us about the market for the book would also be very helpful)

Primary market: TC practitioners, service managers, mental health academics, European, national and local policy makers and regulators.

Secondary market: Client members, staff in services working with TCs, students.

Level: The book will assume most readers have some experience of working with health, social care or similar services.

As already stated the intention of this book is to illustrate how TCs function in other countries and to instigate debate and networking between TCs. We hope it will be available outside Europe and will open up global discussion and collaboration. This is definitely possible given the Community of Communities already has links with TCs in Australasia and the US.

What other books competing are there in this field? Please give the full publication details, including price, number of pages and year of publication, and address each book separately with at least a couple of sentences on each. This will enable us to understand better your intentions and the prospective place of the book in the market.

Whilst there are a number of books available at the moment concerning therapeutic communities there are none that looks exclusively at the full range of them on a pan-European basis.

How does your book differ from them?

Please see answer to previous question.


Will the book be appropriate for course adoption? If so, which courses?

Diploma in TC work, PD training, Social work, Health and Social Care degrees, Nursing, Addictions.

How quickly will your book need to be updated?

After five years.

Please provide the names and contact details of at least two individuals qualified to peer review your manuscript if required:

David Kennard – d.Kennard@virgin.net Penny Campling- Penelope.Campling@leicspart.nhs.uk Rudy Moos – rmoos@stanford.edu Barbara Rawlings – barbara.rawlings@talk21.com


Finally, please add anything else that you feel may help us to evaluate your proposal.

This book will provide a larger context to the other Jessica Kingsley books on Therapeutic Communities, and will make a clear statement that in the future JKP will be looking more to Europe for new markets and contributors.
