Pre/Post Gastric Bypass Group

Considering whether or not to have a gastric bypass procedure can be a difficult decision to make. Many factors of one’s life are affected by bariatric surgeries and The Emily Program offers support for individuals that have had bariatric surgery and are looking for support in their new lifestyle, as well as support for those who are considering surgery.

A new Pre/Post Gastric Bypass group is scheduled to begin in our new St. Louis Park location on February 15, 2012. This ongoing support and process group provides connections with other people that are planning to have, or have had bariatric surgery, and focuses on the unique needs of clients who are continuing to work toward recovery from their eat disorder.

As a part of the group, Emily Program staff provide a safe forum to ask questions and receive feedback about what can be expected before and after surgery. Groups address the emotional needs of everyday life pre and post surgery and practice skills such as conflict resolution, distress tolerance, assertiveness, and self-awareness.
