Chapter 8 provides clients with strategies for changing beliefs about non-acquiring, sorting, and discarding. These include a review of problematic thinking styles, self-generated questions about possessions, advantages and disadvantages, the downward arrow method, and the use of thought records to track thinking and emotions. Other methods include defining need versus want, perfectionism and considering the value of time. Clients can select the methods that work best for them to try out as homework.
