This paper compares three models of care: medical, administrative, and therapeutic. Using the example of therapeutic community practice, it looks at how the principles, culture, and structure of therapeutic community work can be described as a developmental progression: from infantile attachment to containment through relationship, then communication, involvement as 'finding one's place amongst others' and, finally, personal agency as the goal of emotional development. © 2006 by 'Pinel' Verlag GmbH.
