Group members meet at a pre-arranged location near a mall or group of stores so all members can practice not acquiring things that are challenging for them. The group divides into two subgroups for the practice. Members rate their anxiety or discomfort before, during, and after the non-acquisition practice as they encounter items they would like to obtain. Leaders encourage them to notice reductions in discomfort during the course of the exercise. Group members help coach each other. A case vignette illustrates the process and challenges for group members.
