Ending intimate partner violence requires intervention on all levels,
but ultimately it is the perpetrators who need to understand and change their behavior.
Emerge, the nation’s first counseling program for men who abuse women has provided treatment,
education and training to perpetrators of domestic violence since 1977. Their philosophy of holding abusers accountable and putting the needs of victims first has proven to be effective in the treatment of domestic violence abusers. From the outset, they have collaborated with Transition House, the first shelter for victims of domestic violence on the East Coast, which was opened in 1976. In this webinar, we will examine the importance of Batterers Intervention Programs working with Domestic Violence
Prevention Programs to effectively impact the cycle of abuse.
This webinar will include David Adams, Ed.D Co-Founder/Co-Director of Emerge, Susan Cayouette, Co-Director of Emerge, Sarah Gyorog, Executive Director of Transition House, Ronit Barkai, Assistant Director of Transition House, as well as participants in the Emerge program. The webinar will be moderated by social worker/filmmaker Tracy Schott, founder of Voices4Change.
