    Letting therapeutic means maximizing behavior potential. Then talking about therapeutic places makes sense. Therapeutic Interactions of Persons would include Mary’s concept of I-Thou and Ray’s Therapeutic Relations. Therapeutic communities would includes Dan’s VP with his sister and brother-in-law. Could we say that these are logical best practices?
    “A Person does not choose less behavior potential over more.” has a logical structure.
    What are logical best practices? Descriptively?

    The following is taken from a Virtue’s Training Manual. Does this define a therapeutic community?

    1. Speak the Language of Virtues Language has the power to inspire or to discourage. Using virtues to acknowledge, guide, correct and thank awakens the best within us.
    What are your strength virtues? What are your growth virtues?

    What boundaries do you have? What boundaries do you need?
    4. Honor the Spirit

    How do you honor your personal spirit and the spirit of your group?
    5. Offer Companioning
    Being deeply present and listening with compassionate curiosity guides others to find clarity and to create their own solutions.
    How well do you listen to others, to yourself? What really needs to be heard?
