Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Although the much-satirized image of a house overflowing with National Geographics and infested with cats may make us chuckle, the reality of compulsive hoarding is no laughing matter. The most common reason for evictions in the US and a significant risk factor for fatal house fires, compulsive hoarding is a treatable condition related to obsessive-compulsive disorder. It is characterized by the acquisition of possessions that have little or no value, which the sufferer, often referred to as the saver, has great difficulty discarding.

This book, the first ever written for savers and their families, provides an overview of compulsive hoarding and how it relates to obsessive-compulsive disorder. It discusses hoarding broadly, offering readers perspectives on the physical, behavioral, and value-oriented aspects of the condition. You can use its assessment tools to help decide why you or your loved one hoards. Skill-building exercises help you determine how to beat the hoarding problem by addressing issues that often underlie compulsive saving. Even though this is fundamentally a self-help book, it contains a frank discussion about the need for professional help in some hoarding cases, how to find it, and what medications have been proven effective for savers.

Review:

"The Collyer brothers, with their bicycle-, chandelier- and newspaper-packed Harlem apartment, may have been the most famous sufferers of compulsive hoarding (see the recent biography Ghosty Men by Franz Lidz), but this syndrome affects several million Americans, according to the authors of this excellent, easy-to-understand handbook. The authors, two psychologists and a psychiatrist, all experts in treating forms of obsessive-compulsive disorder, define the syndrome as 'the acquisition and saving of possessions that have little or no value' or a value perceived only by the hoarder, who 'has great difficulty' discarding the objects. The book offers case histories showing how damaging the syndrome can be to one's relationships and quality of life, self-assessment exercises and, most usefully, a discussion of treatment options, from self-help strategies using cognitive therapy to outside professional help." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Three compulsive hoarding experts team up to provide the first research-based cognitive behavorial treatment plan to help compulsives learn to recognize the problem, understand the treatment options, and learn gentle techniques to free themselves from this life-threatening disorder.

Synopsis:

Two and one-half percent of Americans suffer from some form of obsessive-compulsive disorder; one in five of these is a hoarder. This book provides an overview of compulsive hoarding and explains how it relates to obsessive-compulsive disorder. Skill-building exercises help readers determine how to beat the hoarding problem by addressing issues that often underlie compulsive saving.
