Several TCA members were present in New Delhi, India earlier this month for the WFTC World Conference to help give a better understanding of therapeutic communities and to equip local participants with tools and skills to implement success TC programs within the country. Agency leaders explored the fundamental aspects of the TC over the course of three days, and were provided a guided tour of a local adolescent program for criminal justice-engaged children and youth. TCA thanks WFTC, its host agency SPYM, and the government of India for supporting an exceptional conference.
