Example text

The value of an outsider account, however, is that other outsiders will see it as more impartial than an insider account. ) Rapoport subsequently analysed the way in which his book was at first rejected by colleagues at Henderson Hospital, but subsequently accepted (Rapoport and Manning 1976). Indeed, Rapoport’s book has since become recognised as a seminal text on therapeutic communities. Some of its classifications, for example the ‘four pillars’ – democratisation, permissiveness, confrontation and communalism – have worked their way back into therapeutic community practice as criteria to be achieved and standards to maintain, and more recently have been reworked and updated to fit in with contemporary therapeutic community practice (Haigh 1999).

In Britain, research into therapeutic communities has remained fairly patchy and sporadic, and has relied upon the ability of researchers to find outside research funds or on members of staff to carry out small-scale studies (see Chapter 1). Henderson Hospital is an exception, and has a long history of encouraging research and employing researchers who have produced a steady stream of work since 1980 (Warren and Dolan 2001). The evaluative work on the effectiveness of therapeutic community treatment for personality disorder in the UK largely stems from work done at Henderson Hospital and HMP Grendon.

The differences between Maxwell Jones and Robert Rapoport stand as a good example of the differences that can arise between a committed staff group on the one hand, and an ‘objective’ observer on the other. For the staff, any ‘disinterested’ account may be interpreted as critical, and the researcher who attempts to write such an account may be viewed as disloyal and regarded with suspicion. The value of an outsider account, however, is that other outsiders will see it as more impartial than an insider account.
