SELF offers formal courses on the implementation of the Therapeutic Community (TC) approach, and a staff credentialing program called Universal Treatment Curriculum (UTC) . Its target particpants are local and international students, teachers and those in the helping profession. In 2019, SELF is inaugurating the Msgr. William O’Brien and Fr. Lambertus Somar Building which will house the International Institute for Therapeutic Communities (IITC). The center will be fitted with a lecture hall, 3 break-out rooms, a training laboratory, a cafeteria, and residential rooms for up to 22 participants and 4 trainers. In the past, SELF shared its best practices to its trainees by immersing them in the program. Now, with the advent of a training center with the slogan — Learning and Innovation — training promises to be a unique experience where participants get to form their own learning peer group.
