For the November 8 Roundtable join us for a group discussion on transformative information.
Topic: Who is a Compulsive Shopper?
Description: Before COVID, we hit the Perfect Storm, a confluence of factors encouraging more and more consumerism. And then COVID took it to a whole new level when the need to escape fear, gain control, escape, and adapt made it worse. Compulsive shopping has been called the "smiled upon addiction" because it's lurking beneath the surface, not recognized like alcoholism or drug addiction, yet causing shame among overshoppers. Shopping has become a coping mechanism for an emotion(s) an individual just can't bear. This presentation will discuss the human needs we try to fill, healthier alternatives you might assist your client in finding, behaviors that would indicate an overshopper, and the true damage that may be lurking below the surface.
