Do you have too much stuff? Do you know someone who does? Is the clutter creating problems in your life? Are you willing to begin to examine this issue? If so, please join us for a workshop led by Lee Shuer on Friday, Sept. 25 at the Watertown Public Library form 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
This free workshop will cover topics and techniques found in the book, Buried in Treasures by David Tolin, Randy Frost, and Gail Steketee. Mr. Shuer helped design the facilitators guide to Buried in Treasures, which teaches evidence-based skills strategies to change the way people think about their possessions and challenge them to make gradual changes to mange their clutter and lives. Mr. Shuer will also explore the negative power of stigma, the experience of being a creative collector, and the joy of regaining control over chaos.
For the past 15 years, Mr. Shuer has worked in human services – helping those with mental health challenges to take charge of their lives. He has addressed large audiences across the US and Australia, and trained thousands of people to run his peer support groups. His work has been featured in media sources including The New York Times, Huff Post Live, Scientific American, CBS Sunday Morning, and Canadian Public Broadcasting. Mr. Shuer is acknowledged as a leading proponent of self-help and peer support for making and sustaining progress towards a life less cluttered.
Sponsored by the Watertown Public Health Department and Riverside Community Care.
