The Cotswold Community, The Story of a Pioneering Therapeutic Community

by John Whitwell


My Preface about the Cotswold Community is from the book, “Revealing the Inner World of Traumatised Children and Young People” by Christine Bradley with Francia Kinchington and published by Jessica Kingsley.

I worked with Christine at the Cotswold Community in the 1970’s and we both experienced the hard-won creation of a therapeutic community as described in the Preface.

In her book Christine is updating the pioneering work of Barbara Dockar-Drysdale into the present day context.
