” Buried In Treasures ” – 15 week course starting in August via Zoom

It seems the pandemic and the stay at home advisory has encouraged many people to start clearing out their homes. Tempting things are left on the curb or the lawn. For those with homes filled to the brim and who are having difficulty parting with treasured possessions, or have an uptick of acquiring during this stressful time, the COA is offering a 15-week skills training workshop and peer support group. Research has show that working through the book “Buried in Treasures” by Tolin, Steketee & Frost in a structured group is one of the most effective ways of addressing excessive clutter and compulsive acquiring behaviors. This is a FREE group for seniors that identify themselves as having too much clutter. You are asked to purchase a copy of the book ‘Buried in Treasures” . To register or for more information, please call the COA and ask for Lauren Barretta at 978-318-3020. The time and exact start date is to be determined.
