Emerge offers a variety of educational manuals for providing abuser services and for program administration. Some materials are offered at specific trainings as a part of the training fee. If you have any additional questions about these materials, please contact our office by phone or e-mail.
Emerge Abuser Education Group Program Manual
For First & Second Stage Groups
This program manual outlines the entire Emerge model including specific educational presentations, individual activities and guidance on running exercises. It also gives some supplemental information on writing reports to referral sources, conducting partner contacts, and our philosophy of providing abuser education. The Emerge model is composed of a 40-session curriculum, but can be adapted to additional or fewer sessions and can be used in addition to other abuser education models.
This manual is provided to each participant during the introductory training. Due to the challenge of intervening in domestic violence, we recommended that people attend an Emerge training to fully understand this manual.

For First & Second Stage Groups
Our Spanish Abuser Education Group Program Manual is currently being revised; we expect it to be available sometime in 2013. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
This program manual is a translation of our English manual (above). Included are several articles explaining cultural adaptations of the Emerge interventions for Latino men.
Due to the challenge of intervening in domestic violence, we recommended that people attend an Emerge training to fully understand this manual.

Partner Contact Manual
As a part of conducting abuser education services in Massachusetts, all state certified programs are required to attempt a phone contact with the abuser’s current partner and ex-partners. This manual
outlines the method Emerge uses for these contacts and includes more detail than what is found in the First & Second Stage Program Manual. It contains the partner contact form that is in the appendix of the program manual and includes details on the purpose, philosophy, safety concerns, and logistics of making a partner contact.
20 pages ~ $12
Policy and Procedure Manual for Group Leaders
For additional information on Emerge’s program orientation procedures for new clients, specific administrative details on collecting group fees and dealing with resistant clients, and some ethical considerations for group leaders, this manual is a critical addition to any newly established abuser education program. This manual may also be helpful for established programs to learn which Emerge administrative functions might benefit their agency.
