Sarah Dowal, a licensed clinical social worker with experience in both group and individual treatment of hoarding behaviors, will facilitate the group which will meet weekly for 15 weeks from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. on Tuesdays beginning October 20th, 2015 at Bedford Town Center. 

The group offers a friendly, confidential environment in which participants can share their difficulties, receive support, and practice strategies for managing their clutter and accumulation behaviors and avoid a hoarding situation.  Space Limited to 8 so if you are interested,  please sign up soon.

Bedford Hoarding Task Force in cooperation with MA Housing is pleased to announce this new support and skill building group to assist ​adults with clutter behaviors and possession accumulation. The fifteen-session group will allow people who are prone to be “buried in treasures” to learn, share, and find support as they practice skills that will​ assist them in de-cluttering their homes.

The group content and structure will follow the format in the Buried in Treasures manual (Tolin, Frost & Steketee, 2013). Participants may be responsible for a minimal fee to cover cost of the book and materials, based on a sliding fee scale and ability to pay.
