oriented, Psychodrama, Gestalt, Therapeutic Community). They
work fruitfully together and meet every three years at a large
international Congress. In turn it takes place in all the continents
of our world and a very lively and profound exchange of clinical
experience and creative ideas is achieved.

are intellecual and personal highlights. Limited to about 60
participants this conference offers a very intensive opportunity
for exchange of ideas, clinical practise and the frank discussion
of new approaches.
The ATC has its roots in the work of Maxwel Jones (one of
its founders), Tom Main, Bion, Harold Bridger and other pioneers
in the work with therapeutic communities. ATC publishes its own

It is the international forum in this field where the possibilities
of psychotherapy are dicussed, research is presented and new
