Have you checked out the latest group catalog? We are now offering more outpatient groups specifically for clients working toward recovery from COE/BED. Here are just a few:
Overcoming Barriers to Movement
Wednesdays, 8:00-9:30 AM in St. Louis Park (5354 Parkdale Dr.)
Led by: Jennie Laskow, MA, LPCC & Jocey Mathern, RD, LD
This group will offer psychoeducation, process therapy and an exercise component. The group will provide a safe place to identify, explore, and overcome barriers (emotional, physical, logistical) to exercise. It will be co-facilitated by a therapist and a personal trainer/dietitian. Group members will be encouraged to explore/receive support around thoughts and feelings that arise in the process of bringing movement into their eating disorder recovery process. The physical movement will include the three components of exercise: cardiovascular, flexibility, and resistance.
The holidays often involve family rituals and traditions where food has a central role. The holidays also may be one of the few times that a family comes together each year. Planning ahead can help people with eating disorders (and their loved ones) manage these challenges and enjoy conversation and good times with friends and family during the holidays.
Fall is upon us, and it is time to start thinking about outpatient group opportunities for next season. The Winter Group Catalog is now available on The Emily Program’s website and will be available at the front desks of our Twin Cities locations next week!

Every year our understanding of the brain and eating disorders improves. However, there are still a limited number of truly evidence based treatment for our patients. The search for evidence based care may feel overwhelming and sometimes futile. Unfortunately, moving in the direction of care that is not evidence based reduces the likelihood that clients will achieve recovery. There are several reasons why providers may offer care not based on the literature or published data:
Each year our clients have the opportunity to share their thoughts and recommendations with The Emily Program. Throughout the summer we have conducted location specific Client Satisfaction Surveys in St. Louis Park/Burnsville and St. Paul/Stillwater. Collecting feedback in this way helps us continue to develop programming and enhance client experience at each of our locations.
This month, we are hosting a Client Satisfaction Survey for clients of our Duluth and Seattle offices. Clients who participate have the opportunity to enter a drawing for a $20 Amazon gift card!
