Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book provides practical ways for clinical assessment and value-adding intervention in a person-centred and 'real-world' way. ... I'm glad this book is on my shelf - it is an easy-to-read and highly practical guide to working with people who clutter." - Richard Cave, Speech and Language Therapist, Northwick Park Hospital, UK in The Psychologist

"Erudite, enlightened and enlightening: this handbook shows how cluttering - the ‘adopted orphan’- is cherished by a passionate scientific global community, confidently asking appropriate questions, with the integrity to answer ‘we don’t know it all’. The complexity in cluttering is clear, with clarity presented about what we do know of its nature, its impact, and about meaningfulness and function in the management of cluttering." - Margaret Leahy, Senior Lecturer in Clinical Speech and Language Studies, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland

"The issues raised will contribute to greater understanding of the cluttering disorder. The text is strongly scientific and well researched but is accessible and engaging. This book is a successful attempt to integrate various observations and opinions on issues surrounding cluttering." - Dobrinka Koleva Georgieva, Director of the South West University Stuttering Research Centre, Bulgaria
