Interviews

Hoarders: Diagnosis and Treatment, Part 1 - Gail Stekette, Ph.D.

In this interview with Dr. Gail Stekette we cover the diagnostic issues involved in working with hoarders.

Hoarders: Diagnosis and Treatment, Part 2 - Randy Frost, Ph.D.

In this interview, Frost outlines three problems that need to be understood regarding hoarders: first, the problem of excessive acquisition. Obviously, if someone keeps acquiring stuff, the stuff will accumulate. Next, there is the difficulty in discarding possessions, which takes in the hoarder’s beliefs about possessions. Last, there is the level of disorganization regarding the possessions – hoarders do not perceive space like non-hoarders.
