Compulsive hoarding can make life a misery, affecting health, well-being and lifestyle, and posing a significant risk of fire, illness, infestation and other dangers. Hoarding touches the whole family, and can make it difficult to receive visitors. In extreme cases, it impinges on basic freedoms, such as space in which to eat, do paperwork or even sleep. Packed with practical advice, Understanding Hoarding aims to help those with hoarding difficulties and those who live with them. It is also a useful resource for friends and professionals. Topics include:
what hoarding disorder is
what triggers hoarding
why an intensive clear-out doesn't work
decluttering tips and tricks
how to help a hoarder
where your stuff goes
therapies and resources
what the professionals say
The hoarder's journey can be a long and complex one but, in this useful book, expert Jo Cooke says that it is possible to take control of your life and your stuff.
