Exploring the first purpose-built prison community of its kind, the HMP Dovegate Therapeutic Community, this book provides the most comprehensive coverage of this research to date, following the progress of individual prisoners' through therapy and highlighting the key essentials for prisoners to address their motivations and criminal behaviour. Uniquely examining the first purpose-built prison community of its kind, HMP Dovegate Therapeutic Community, this book assesses individual prisoners' progress through therapy and provides an evidence base to support investment into prison-based therapeutic communities. Charting the process of change, the authors highlight the key essentials necessary for prisoners to address their motivations and criminal patterns of behaviour, revealing that strong therapeutic alliances and willingness to ask for help as well as offering help to others are critical. The most comprehensive coverage of therapeutic communities to date, this book will be an important resource for students and practitioners working in prisons and with high-risk offenders, providing recommendations for building the best possible environment for prisoners to enhance their self-esteem, improve their behaviour and establish skills to desist
This book gives terrific practical attention to the details of describing the project, remembering its history and context, exploring its methods, and raising issues on an increasingly complex level as the book evolves. It will be welcomed by its readership.' - Russ Immarigeon, Editor, Offender Programs Report, USA In this unique book an account of the vision, preparation, then trials and tribulations involved in establishing the UK's first therapeutic community prison in decades forms the background to a very readable narrative of the accompanying research programme from inception to outcome. Rising to the many challenges the researchers persevered with an innovative, multimethod, longitudinal and process- (as well as outcome-) oriented strategy. What has emerged is a richly detailed, warts and all portrayal of decisions, reality and ultimate vindication, with clear lessons and implications for future policy, practice and research in this field. This volume should be required reading for those with an interest in penal policy, therapeutic communities, personality disorder, processes of personal change and research in institutional contexts. - Adrian Needs, University of Portsmouth, UK 'The idea of a therapeutic community is a complex one, even more so in a prison environment. Evaluating its work and its effects is a challenging process. This book describes, in a highly engaging way, how such a community operated - and endeavoured to meet the needs of its members while also addressing its task of returning them to society less likely to offend than before. The book reports a searching evaluation of many facets of this. It is a genuine demonstration project showing how to combine a variety of research methods: the exploration of individual-level change is particularly welcome. Most important of all, the people at the centre of the story show vividly through. Their struggles to relate to others in new ways, to leave behind damaged pasts and strive for better futures, are tellingly reflected in these pages. - James Maquire, University of Liverpool, UK
