TC or not TC, that is the question.

The question is that would be great to work in that kind of theoretical environment for any involved professional, but the reality as it is in our public services is that most of professionals who are appointed to work in CTs, would not have to accept and practice those communitarian and therapeutic principles, they just have to get through by a burocratic process.
