Course Description
Feeling frustrated in your attempts to help compulsive buying clients? Want to feel more competent and confident with them? This workshop will give you the tools! During our time together, I'll provide you with all the information you need to effectively help your overshopping clients. You'll learn what compulsive buying is, how to assess if a client is a compulsive buyer as well as how, when, and whether to intervene with an overshopping client. We'll talk about typical reactions that compulsive buyers evoke in us and general principles regarding intervention.
