Are You Holiday Shopping or Compulsive Shopping - Coping Strategies
Given holiday expectations and the media hype to shop as much and as soon as possible, many of us become holiday overshoppers. Whether we suffer from compulsive shopping all year or we get caught in theholiday frenzy, the result is often regret, disappointment, and financial consequences.

On this show, Dr. April Benson, psychologist, expert on addictive shopping and author of To Buy or Not to Buy-Why We Overshop and How to Stop, helps us with some strategies for the season. In the back and forth with Host, Dr. Suzanne Phillips, Dr. Benson identifies the retail triggers, and the set-up for emotional and impulsive buying. She offers concrete suggestions for taking charge of our shopping and invites us to shift from a “goods” holiday to a Good Holiday. Her ideas include whole family plans and even specific websites that make “passing forward help to others” a wonderful re-definition of Holiday Giving. Start your holiday with this show.
