INDTC

International Network of Democratic Therapeutic Communities

English  Italiano  日本語  العربية  Español  Français  ελληνικά

The International Network of Democratic Therapeutic Communities (INDTC) is an association which attempts to establish a conversation about the therapeutic community, in order to transmit and develop a psychoanalytic understanding of its practice.

We believe that the concepts developed by Freud provide a framework for therapeutic communites. Fundamental to this belief is an emphasis on the uniqueness of each subject and on allowing ourselves to be taught by our patients.

Membership of the Network is not limited to therapeutic community practitioners. We welcome participation from all who are interested in psychoanalysis and the application of psychoanalytic ideas including those who - as a result of their own mental suffering - have been through a period of therapeutic community or psychoanalytic treatment.
