 Strategies for Brain-Based Challenges

Karen Kruzan, Twin Brooks

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2021

6:15PM - 8:00PM (Pacific Time)

We all encounter clients with anxiety, depression, trauma, and OCD. This presentation will give you an overview of what is going on in the brains of people with anxiety, depression, and stress. You will learn strategies to work with people with various mental health conditions so that your existing methods work even better.

Session Highlights:

Karen Kruzan, LISW-S, CPO-CD has spent the past 30 years changing lives. She is a psychotherapist, professional organizer, published author, and national speaker. She is a Hoarding and Chronic Disorganization Specialist, a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, and a member of NASW, AADA, ICD, and NAPO. Ms. Kruzan serves on her community’s hoarding taskforce and was twice the featured organizer on TLC’s Hoarding: Buried Alive.

Break-out Room Questions:

1.    How do I feel when a client's mental health condition enters the organizing session? 

2.  What do I do when I client becomes "overly" emotional in an organizing session, and is it effective?
