About Us

International Network of Living and Learning Experiences is an association which represents Living Learning Experience courses worldwide.

Living learning experiences (LLEs) are based on Therapeutic Community (TC) principles, and are a particular implementation of TC principles to form a temporary TC. This can last for a few hours to a few days, and can be used to train staff in how to establish and maintain healthy working environments, including those in Enabling EnvironmentsTherapeutic Communities, and other group dynamics settings.

LLEs can also be used in leadership training or personal growth programmes.

Membership of the Network is not limited to therapeutic community practitioners. We welcome participation from all who run or are involved in LLEs.
