Rise Above Your Stuff
Get a Fresh Start to Overcome Disorganization and Hoarding
by Barbara Jo Dennison and Karen Kruzan
This workbook will be a source of healing for patient; Dr. Dennison and Ms. Kruzan help the reader understand the insidious nature of this problem and offer strategies to help patients affected by hoarding. Hoarding is a biopsychosocial problem which has roots in the neurotransmitters in our brains and then is reinforced by our beliefs, societal structures, and shame in confronting the problem. It is a choice between our "stuff" and our very lives. The authors offer insight and tools to empower patients to choose their lives over the constant subtle messages to have more and more things. People want to "have it all" and sometimes this becomes the choice to "hoard it all" at the expense of their families, health and lives. Thank you for a valuable healing resource.
