  • Emprise

    The Emprise program was established in 2017. It aims to provide assistance to men with emotional dependency issues, as this problem is rarely discussed throughout the judiciary process, which means that men reintegrating society with this issue do so without knowing that their tortious dynamic is influenced by their dependency. The tools given to them for other issues therefore seem inefficient.

    One 3-hour meeting each week
