Probationers, parolees attend therapeutic community modality training in Dapitan

Dipolog City (15 September) -- A total of 20 probationers and parolees from Dapitan City and the municipalities of Sibutad and Rizal in Zamboanga del Norte successfully completed the first phase of Therapeutic Community Modality (TCM) training spearheaded by the Dapitan City Parole and Probation Office (PPO) last week.

Under the aegis of the Parole and Probation Administration (PPA), the Therapeutic Community Program is a community-based self-help social learning treatment model in which clients receive information and impetus to change as a part of the community, serving as a learning laboratory for clients to learn and practice values, skills and responsibilities that they will transfer to their respective homes and communities from "wrong living to right living."

The training was made possible through the support extended by PPA-IX headed by Director Rosa H. Lacanglacang, Dapitan PPO led by Chief Probation and Parole Officer Jose Alan B. Santillana, the Dapitan Shrine Volunteer Probation Aide Association (DVPAA) through its president Margarito T. Pacilan and the Our Lady of Mercy Parish in Barcelona, Dapitan City through Rev. Fr. Elmer Jamarolin.

Fr. Jamarolin offered the free use of parish facilities like the function hall, living quarters, kitchen, lights and water for the training.

Dapitan PPO also expressed its gratitude to the city government of Dapitan and the city schools division for their all-out support to the activity.

Serving as resource persons and facilitators during the training were Alternative Learning System (ALS) coordinators Grace S. Bulagao, Felisa Gahuman and Siony Enoy who also serve as volunteer probation aides.

Dapitan PPO chief Santillana, on the other hand, saw positive response from the client-participants as they vowed to live by the philosophies and tenets of "good living" in their respective communities. (PPO/PIA-ZN) [top]
