Overview

In recent times, there has been an increased interest in obsessive compulsive behavior, specifically, compulsive hoarding or the uncontrollable acquisition of material possessions. It is estimated that about 3% of the total United States population are suffering from this condition.

Why should people care at all about hoarding behavior? From a very broad point of view, hoarding behavior produces two problems: danger to one’s physical and mental well-being, and danger to the community. The second problem brought about by the increased acquisition of material possessions is the compromised structural integrity of the hoarder’s home.

This book was written to help those whose lives are effected by this psychological disorder. It is presented in an easy to read format loading with helpful information and valuable resources. Here are some of the topics covered:

• Understanding the Problem
• Preparing to Help a Hoarder
• Communicating & Assessing
• Strategies for Implementation
