About the SELF Model of the Sanctuary Model at Collier House a Residential Program for women in Monmouth County NJ

The SELF Model provides a simple and accessible language for all the people working together toward change within themselves and the organization through comprehensive and universal categories. These categories are:

Safety: physical, psychological, social, and moral

Emotional Management: recognizing and handling feelings in non-harmful ways

Loss: acknowledging and grieving past losses or traumas and committing to work against getting stuck in the past while recognizing that all change involves loss

Future: re-establishing the capacity for choice and engaging in new behaviors rather than repeating old patterns
