We’ve just scheduled an exciting teleclass for this week. Please join us on Thursday, March 27, at 4:00 p.m. MST (6:00 p.m. EST). My guest will be April Lane Benson, Ph.D., a nationally known psychologist who specializes in the treatment of compulsive buying disorder.
Dr. Benson’s new self-help book, To Buy or Not to Buy?: Why We Overshop and How to Stop, will be published in December 2008 by Trumpeter Books. She previously edited I Shop, Therefore I Am: Compulsive Buying and the Search for Self, a multidisciplinary approach to the problem of compulsive buying.
As well as providing group and individual treatment and coaching, Dr. Benson trains therapists who want to work with overshoppers. In 2006, she launched Stopping Overshopping (www.stoppingovershopping.com), a guided self-help program that is based on the successful treatment program she developed.
Dr. Benson has appeared widely in the media, including Good Morning America, Today, the CBS Evening News, and Oprah and Friends radio. She has been quoted in such national publications as The New York Times Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post.
Don’t miss the chance to hear and interact with one of the nation’s top experts on compulsive buying.
