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 and it can be hard to resist picking them up. 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 shown 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. Priority will be given to those who have not taken the class before.
