This is a great time of year to de-clutter and donate unused electronics. "Upcycling" is a way to change them into refurbished devices and fund a good cause.
Through Affect Change you’re able to provide support to The Emily Program Foundation without opening your checkbook. The funds generated from donated “upcycled” electronics go back out into the community to educate about eating disorders, advocate for access to care, and ultimately change the conversation.
Affect Change Campaign – Give your electronics to give back
Ever wanted to give back, but are unable to write a check? During our Affect Change campaign you can. Between November 11-December 31 you can contribute to the amazing eating disorder advocacy and education work of The Emily Program Foundation without opening your checkbook. “How?” you may ask … most of us have unused, old technology in our homes. You can upcycle (donate) your old computers, tablets, cell phones, etc. cleaning out your home and keeping them out of landfills while also contributing funds to The Emily Program Foundation (100% tax deductible).
With the success of our September Onsite tour still lingering around us, we are excited to be continuing this program with our next visit taking place December 5th and 6th.
As a healthcare provider, answering questions and helping people that struggle with eating disorders is becoming increasingly common. You want solid facts. You want evidence-based practices. You want to make referrals with complete confidence.
Multiple Disorders and Intervention: Now What?
This opportunity is open to:
- Anyone working with clients who are presenting co-occurring disorders.
- Anyone working with families struggling to get help for a loved one suffering from an unclear behavioral health issue.
- Anyone seeking to gain more knowledge about the resources available for complex and challenging cases.
A complimentary lunch will be served and providers will receive one CE credit.

For several years it's been clear that Family Based Therapy (FBT) has the most evidence based support for its effectiveness with recovery rates in the 50-60% range for adolescents with anorexia who have been ill for less than three years. This number is two to three times better than other therapies for this patient population. Having said that, this still means there are a significant number of adolescents who are not recovering through traditional FBT. A recent study highlights behaviors during the family meal that appear to predict when FBT is most likely to be effective. As FBT is the core of how we treat adolescents at CCED, we are particularly interested in this research. This may be significant for adolescents and families for whom FBT may be quite effective but need greater support around parental empowerment, setting contingencies, managing meals and other mechanisms that may improve their rates of recovery. This article will hopefully be part of a new wave of interest in ways to make this evidence based therapy even more effective for more patients.
