Karin E. Fried of Organizational Consulting Services Announces Group for People with Hoarding Issues
Buried in Treasures is a 16-week workgroup that is based on the book by the same name. The group will help people overcome challenges associated with hoarding.
The "Buried in Treasures" work group is not just about clutter. The group is a way for people with hoarding behavior to learn new skills, overcome challenges, increase motivation, reduce acquiring and more.
The group brings together people who thought that they were "alone" with their issues. Hoarding is a complex and isolating condition. It is often misunderstood and not often talked about.
Fried teaches an in-person group in Montana but wanted to reach people that were not able to come to the class because of distance. By offering a "virtual" group – anyone can attend.
Each week there is a discussion around a skill, followed by the completion of various exercises. There are tips on decluttering and how to stop over-acquiring. Individual progress, challenges, successes and goals are monitored through the program.
If you are overwhelmed with too many possessions and are ready to make a change – this group can help you get there.
There is hope – you just have to be ready and willing to take the first step.
