"Dynamic Security" describes the inner workings and dynamics of democratic therapeutic communities (TCs) in prisons. Chapters on theory, practice, management and on outcome and evaluation of work in TCs in prisons are linked with clinical examples. The contributors explore the complexities of working in therapy with the powerful emotional impact generated in the process of therapy in the forensic setting. In particular, they focus on the previous life history of offenders in therapy and on the effect of former relationship experiences on offenders' behaviour. This book will prove indispensable to anyone working in the forensic field in prisons, secure hospitals or dangerous and severe personality disorder (DSPD) units, including psychiatrists, psychologists, prison and probation officers, social workers, prison governors and other staff, and also to students training for this work. "Community, Culture and Change" encompasses a wide range of ideas and theoretical models related to communities and cultures as a whole, embracing key Therapeutic Community concepts such as collective responsibility, citizenship and empowerment, as well as multidisciplinary ways of working and the social origins of distress. The ways in which our social and therapeutic worlds are changing is illustrated by the innovative and creative work described in these books.

Review:

This collection of essays is primarily concerned with the position, place and processes of the "Therapeutic Community" (TC) within the Prison estate of England and Wales. This book is a welcome contribution to discussions about prison as a human(e) environment. It recognises that security and "treatment" (in a wide range of interpretations of this word) do not have to be considered to be competing demands on the prison resources. Author: Social Work and Social Sciences

From the Author:

Michael Parker is a Group Analyst and Clinical Supervisor at the Institute of Group Analysis in London and Director of Therapy at HMP Send, the first Democratic Therapeutic Community for women in a closed prison environment.

The contributors explore the complexities of working in TCs and the powerful emotional impact generated in the process of therapy in the forensic setting.
