Counseling for Over-shopping and Over-spending

Our last two conferences were a great success. Thank you for attending and for helping us to continue to make history!

Overview & Need

Over 10% of people in America shoplift! 75% of Americans steal from the workplace and most do so repeatedly! Nearly 10% of Americans suffer from compulsive buying disorder! And at least 5% of Americans are compulsive hoarders! These problems pervade the world as well. Research reveals that most of these problems can become addictive as people succumb to personal and social pressures in their lives. Many people don't know help is available or if they do, they may be too ashamed to pursue it.

This is our third conference devoted to exploring theft addictions and disorders which are much more prevalent than recognized and hardly ever effectively assessed or treated. It is also our second conference which addresses the growing problem of compulsive shopping and spending and we will explore the growing phenomenon of hoarding as well. This conference is designed to bring together the pioneers in these fields of theory, research and treatment to promote awareness, understanding, and real options for changes that are long overdue.

Who Should Attend

Mental health professionals of all disciplines (psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, researchers); legal system workers (judges, prosecutors/attorneys, parole/probation/pretrial officers, police); retail & corporate personnel (store owners/ managers/ supervisors/clerks, loss prevention, security system/human resources/employee assistance); financial and credit counselors, lawmakers and policy makers; people who compulsively steal, shop or overspend, their family members and/or friends; and anyone interested in the study of human thought/behavior. 7 Hours of CEUs available (MCBAP approved).
