Are Two Hoarding Heads Better Than One? - Teaming Up Against Hoarding Disorder

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

At last year's Conference, Susan shared her experience of 'coming out of the hoarding closet.' Marnie, an attendee in the room, had been filming herself discarding possessions in her own efforts to curtail her hoarding issues. Turned out they lived 11 miles apart! Since Fall 2016 they've been collaborating using Marnie's video technique. It has been beneficial & transformative for both of them. They will show some video of their sessions & do a live demonstration.

We'll be doing an exercise involving making decisions about discarding.  Please bring something with you that you could live without, but might be hard to let go (the more special the item, the better). You have the option to keep what you bring in, totally your call!  The point of the exercise is the process and to experience the realness/struggle/vulnerability/peer support in the moment.
