Here’s an opportunity to meet with others who understand the challenges!
Through the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) – Specialised Support Services, Catholic Healthcare will soon begin running Buried in Treasures support groups.
The groups work through a highly effective program based on the book Buried in Treasures: Help for Compulsive Acquiring, Saving, and Hoarding by David Tolin, Gail Steketee and Randy Frost.
Groups will meet for 15 weeks – each session will run for 2 hours.
Learning materials including a workbook and copy of Buried in Treasures book provided. Participants will:
explore the reasons behind why we acquire, save and hoard items.
learn new ways of thinking about possessions so we can decide what you really need and what you can do without
learn to identify the “bad guys” that cause and maintain hoarding behavior and meet the “good guys” who can help motivate change
At the end of the program you will take away strategies and techniques that can support you to declutter and reduce acquiring.
There are several different dates and locations. Please enquire when you call.
