Fresh Start Group Manual

Karen Kruzan, LISW-S, CPO-CD and Dr. Barbara Jo Dennison, PhD, LISW-S


An older woman is trying to dig out of her hoarded home, but she is unwilling to let go of anything "pretty".

The trauma of losing her husband leads a woman into a downward spiral, unable to part with any of his possessions. She avoids the grief process by shopping for gifts to "someday" give others, but someday has not arrived. Good intentions become clutter.

    Thank you notes are a way to extend gratitude to someone who has made a difference in your life.


    This author has spent the last several years interviewing and writing about professional and non professional caregivers on their secrets to joyful living. When we work closely with other human beings we create the capacity for life long change in ourselves. Many people shared their stories of profound changes. Their stories and a wellness tip are given on the backs of each gratitude card. An overwhelming majority told me that extending gratitude, the simple act of saying: THANK YOU lightens their load. Each card has an original photo of caregivers helping hands and inside an uplifting message for you to pass along.




    We would love to hear your secrets to joyful living. Use this form to submit them to us.
