Community Supported Living

"It would seem that in some, if not all, psychiatric conditions there is much to be learned from observing a person in a relatively ordinary and familiar social environment, so that his usual ways of relating to other people, reactions to stress, etc. can be observed. If at the same time he can be made aware of the effect of his behavior on other people and be helped to understand some of the motivation underlying his actions, the situation is potentially therapeutic. This we believe to be the distinctive quality of a therapeutic community."
