#12825/1745  THERAPEUTIC COMMUNITY SERIES (3 Programs)
Since the 1950s therapeutic communities (TCs) have effectively treated people with the most severe cases of substance abuse. The focus on an all encompassing community and peer support model is still thriving in TCs today. This comprehensive series blends historical and contemporary footage from active TCs with George De Leon's expert lectures on the framework, methods and components of an ideal TC. Volume 1: THE THERAPEUTIC COMMUNITY PERSPECTIVE De Leon lays out the framework and theory underlying a therapeutic community, including the TC approach to substance abuse treatment and recovery. He explains that the TC is different from other treatment models in that it views substance abuse as a disorder of the whole person, and aims to treat that whole person, not just the drug addiction. Thus, TCs create social living situations where all aspects of a person's personality are displayed in work, formal groups and social activities, and then addressed directly by the community. 54 minutes Volume II: COMMUNITY AS METHOD De Leon explains how a therapeutic community uses its social environment to change individuals' behaviors, lifestyles and identities. The community is the method itself: constant participation, evaluation, feedback and reinforcement of personal responsibility are core components of daily life. 44 minutes Volume III: COMPONENTS OF GENERIC THERAPEUTIC COMMUNITY De Leon goes beyond theory to explain the specific operations of an ideal therapeutic community: what happens on a daily basis, what the physical space looks like, what activities are involved, and what are the functions and roles of the staff and community members. He emphasizes that all TCs can maximize their efficacy by enhancing and adhering to these components. 79 minutes
