Core Values for Therapeutic Communities[edit]

  • CV1: Healthy attachment is a developmental requirement for all human beings, and should be seen as a basic human right
  • CV2: A safe and supportive environment is required for an individual to develop, to grow or to change
  • CV3: People need to feel respected and valued by others to be healthy. Everybody is unique and nobody should be defined or described by their problems alone
  • CV4: All behaviour has meaning and represents communication which deserves understanding
  • CV5: Personal well-being arises from one's ability to develop relationships which recognise mutual need
  • CV6: Understanding how you relate to others and how others relate to you leads to better intimate, social and working relationships
  • CV7: Ability to influence one's environment and relationships is necessary for personal well-being. Being involved in decision-making is required for shared participation, responsibility and ownership.
  • CV8:There is not always a right answer and it is often useful for individuals, groups and larger organisations to reflect rather than act immediately
  • CV9: Positive and negative experiences are necessary for healthy development of individuals, groups and the community
  • CV10: Each individual has responsibility to the group, and the group in turn has collective responsibility to all individuals in it
