TC+ is based on the same model and intended outcomes as mainstream Democratic Therapeutic Communities (DTCs) (see section above) but is aimed at offenders who have Learning Disabilities in addition to offending and other psychological needs. TC+ therefore places a greater emphasis on structured learning interventions alongside the standard DTC community and group sessions. TC+ involves a 12 week assessment followed by a 3 year therapy period.

Suitable for:

As with DTCs, the offending history must normally include violence (including robbery) and/or sexual offences; other serious offending is sometimes considered. Individuals should be motivated to change, willing to work as part of a democratic community, have an IQ under 80, and be willing and able to stay for 3 years. Prisoner need to be B or C category. Prisoners in a parole window, are currently Cat A, or have been Cat A in the last 6 months, who are appealiong their sentence, or who have been under suicide watch (ACCT) or had positive drug tests within the last two months are excluded.
