Review:

Shuker and Sullivan are to be congratulated for editing this wonderful collection of papers, not only in the year that HMP Grendon celebrates its 50th birthday, but also at a time when our prison population seems to be moving inexorably towards 100,000. This book should remind us all that positive work can be done with even the most serious offenders, and that the therapeutic community model remains the only ray of hope for those who are serious about prison reform.
Professor David Wilson, Birmingham City University, UK

Grendon is a worldwide beacon of enlightened prison practice that shows a real alternative to making bad people worse . This book offers valuable help for those wanting to understand the Grendon phenomenon , and learn about it from several different, evidence–based viewpoints. It should provide inspiration and ideas for anybody working in a custodial setting.
Dr Rex Haigh, National Personality Disorder Programme, Department of Health, UK

From the Back Cover:

Described as the 'jewel in the crown' of the prison service, HMP Grendon is a unique, prison-based Democratic TherapeuticCommunity (DTC). Historically, it is the first prison DTC of itskind, and the forerunner to several recent similar initiatives. Itstheoretical significance lies in its therapeutic regime, and itsparticularly challenging client profile. In practical terms, it hasachieved remarkable results, and set the standards for staff-inmaterelationships.

For the first time in a single volume, a unique collection ofresearch and practice papers has been created which highlightsGrendon's sustained contribution to our understanding of the roletherapeutic communities have in effective interventions withoffenders.

With detailed analysis, and access to extensive records fromGrendon's database, papers focus on a wide range of inter-relatingissues; for example, decency and quality of prison life, personality disordered and sex offender prisoners, and a range oftherapies and security in a DTC setting. Chapters also discussconcept DTCs in the USA, the democratic nature of high securityforensic psychiatric hospitals in Holland, and the pros and cons ofdoing research in prisons. The result is an in-depth andfascinating understanding of prison regimes.
