Planned Planned Environment Therapy Trust

The Planned Environment Therapy Trust promotes and supports therapeutic approaches to the treatment of children and adults who have suffered emotional and psychological hurts. Founded in 1966, the Trust reaches out from our base, the Barns Centre in Gloucestershire, to understand, support, develop and promote planned environment therapy and the therapeutic community approach to working and living; and to preserve the history and heritage of this work and approach both for its own sake, and as a tool for learning.

With over 2,000 audio and video recordings, including oral history interviews, recordings of talks and events, copies of commercial and archival films, videos, and audio recordings, we are a major resource for the history and practice of therapeutic environments and progressive education. Our collection of rare gramophone records was recently used in a BBC Radio 4 broadcast on the work of psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Donald Winnicott.
