Emerge is a group counseling and education program for men and women who are abusive in intimate partner relationships. Emerge sees clients who have been abusive in heterosexual and same-sex relationships. Emerge also has an Anger Management program and a fatherhood group. All programs satisfy court/probation and DCF requirements.
The Emerge website provides up-to-date information on other domestic violence programs and resources including a list of resources for survivors.
Due to COVID-19 Emerge is currently conducting all groups via Zoom, which will continue indefinitely into 2021.
Spanish groups are held at Curtis Hall Community Center, 20 South St, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130
Group members must admit to having been physically, emotionally, verbally, economically, or sexually abusive to a partner in an intimate relationship for the Abuser Intervention Program. For the Anger Management Program, the incident(s) must be non-intimate partner related (e.g. involving coworkers, strangers, friends, or other family members).
