International Centre News April 2019

The TCJ continues to share members ‘lived experiences’ of the achievements, dilemmas and struggles to meet the needs of emotionally troubled and traumatised children, families and communities. Many of the papers in this edition explore perspectives on the concept of community.

Thadei Kamisa writes from Pangani Town, Tanzania, on how the rape and murder of a local nurse has led the community to organise against Gender Based Violence and Violence Against Children.

We publish the first instalment of an adapted MA dissertation ‘A foreign correspondent’ on leadership, task and organisation in a children’s therapeutic community by Angus Burnett.

Cynthia Cross writes ‘A brief history’ of the work and communal principles of the former New Barns School in Gloucestershire.  David Lane writes about the evolution of the Child Care History Network which becomes a sub-group of the International Centre today.

Jen Galloway starts an ongoing regular feature with the publication of a document about Dingleton Therapeutic Community from the Planned Environment Therapy Archive, held at MB3.

Keith White offers his regular two pieces ‘The dynamics of community’ and ‘Love actually’, and a review of the excellent book ‘Shaping Children’s Services’ By Chris Hanvey (Oxford, Routledge, 2019).

If you would like to publish an article about your work, or if you have any ongoing thoughts about the IC and TCJ, please do get in touch.
