Publisher's Summary

Hoarding disorder is the excessive saving of objects and difficulty parting with them to a point that interferes with one's ability to properly use rooms and furnishings in the home. Hoarding can become dangerous, sometimes resulting in structural problems and fires or in hazardous sanitary conditions. Studies indicate that around one in every 25 people suffers from hoarding. This means that almost all of us know someone who hoards.

Hoarding: What Everyone Needs to Know demystifies this complex problem, what it looks like and why it may develop and how it can be treated. With their combined expertise in psychological treatments for hoarding and community interventions, Drs. Steketee and Bratiotis explain how to understand hoarding as a mental illness, describing the disorder in layman's terms and explaining the various facets and manifestations of the behavior. Chapters focus on one or more common questions regarding diagnosis, features, how to assess severity, and treatment. The book will dispel myths and help listeners identify hoarding that touches their own lives. As such it will be of great value not only to those who suspect a loved one may be hoarding, but also to first responders, such as firefighters, public health officials, and housing and social service personnel.

Overall

This book has a lot of detailed information for someone who is writing a paper. I purchased it for practical reasons to help with interventions for a loved one that has HD. It did not give a lot of information of what the regular family could do to support and intervene for someone that has HD. It would be very beneficial for somebody writing a paper regarding HD

Great resource!

Well delivered and very informative. Glad to add this to my home library... now diminished in number of books after spring cleaning.
