Stuff : compulsive hoarding and the meaning of things by Randy O Frost( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 2,435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What possesses someone to save every scrap of paper that's ever come into his home? What compulsions drive a woman like Irene, whose hoarding cost her her marriage? Or Ralph, whose imagined uses for castoff items like leaky old buckets almost lost him his house? Or Jerry and Alvin, wealthy twin bachelors who filled up matching luxury apartments with countless pieces of fine art, not even leaving themselves room to sleep? Randy Frost and Gail Steketee were the first to study hoarding when they began their work a decade ago; they expected to find a few sufferers but ended up treating hundreds of patients and fielding thousands of calls from the families of others. Now they explore the compulsion through a series of compelling case studies in the vein of Oliver Sacks. With vivid portraits that show us the traits by which you can identify a hoarder--piles on sofas and beds that make the furniture useless, houses that can be navigated only by following small paths called goat trails, vast piles of paper that the hoarders 'churn' but never discard, even collections of animals and garbage--Frost and Steketee explain the causes and outline the often ineffective treatments for the disorder. They also illuminate the pull that possessions exert on all of us. Whether we're savers, collectors, or compulsive cleaners, none of us is free of the impulses that drive hoarders to the extremes in which they live. For the six million sufferers, their relatives and friends, and all the rest of us with complicated relationships to our things, this book answers the question of what happens when our stuff starts to own us."--Publisher Description

Compulsive hoarding and acquiring : workbook by Gail Steketee( )

22 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although most people enjoy acquiring and using their possessions, and nearly everyone keeps some things they don't need or use, people with compulsive hoarding carry this to an extreme. For them, ridding themselves of extra possessions is emotionally exhausting. Organizing is difficult and resisting the impulse to acquire new things is almost impossible. This book represents more than a decade of research and practice to understand hoarding and develop an effective treatment program that addresses its many components. Used in conjunction with the treatment described in the therapist guide, this workbook teaches people how to minimize the negative effect clutter has on their lives, as well as the lives of those close to them. Using effective and practical techniques and skills, this program helps people get used to the idea of sorting, organizing, and gradually removing their unwanted possessions. People who hoard tend to overvalue the importance of the things they own and keep. This book will also help people to recognize errors in their thinking and modify their thoughts and beliefs to more accurately reflect the value of their belongings. Worksheets for developing a personal organization plan and determining categories for filing are also included in this interactive, easy-to-use workbook. With these books, users can be active participants who successfully overcome their compulsive hoarding."--[Résumé de l'éditeur]

Designed to be used in conjunction with the corresponding workbook, this therapist guide provides numerous assessment and intervention forms to help clients use the methods described in the program.

The Oxford handbook of hoarding and acquiring by Randy O Frost( )

17 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 1,293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hoarding involves the acquisition of and inability to discard large numbers of possessions that clutter the living area of the person collecting them. It becomes a disorder when the behavior causes significant distress or interferes with functioning. Hoarding can interfere with activities of daily living (such as being able to sit in chairs or sleep in a bed), work efficiency, family relationships, as well as health and safety. Hoarding behavior can range from mild to life-threatening. Epidemiological findings suggest that hoarding occurs in 2-6% of the adult population, making it two to three times more common than obsessive-compulsive disorder. The fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) now includes Hoarding Disorder as a distinct disorder within the OCD and Related Anxiety Disorders section, creating a demand for information about it. The Oxford Handbook of Hoarding and Acquiring is the first volume to detail the empirical research on hoarding. Including contributions from all of the leading researchers in the field, this comprehensive volume is divided into four sections in addition to introductory and concluding chapters by the editors: Phenomenology, Epidemiology, and Diagnosis; Etiology; Assessment and Intervention; and Hoarding in Special Populations. The summaries of research and clinical interventions contained here clarify the emotional and behavioral features, diagnostic challenges, and nature of the treatment interventions for this new disorder. This handbook will be a critical resource for both practitioners and researchers, including psychiatrists, psychologists, neurologists, epidemiologists, social workers, occupational therapists, and other health and mental health professionals who encounter clients with hoarding problems in their practice and research. Highlights: --Designation of Hoarding Disorder in the DSM-5 has created a need and demand for more information on HD for practitioners and researchers alike; --First comprehensive volume to discuss up-to-date empirical research on Hoarding Disorder; --Part of the Oxford Library of Psychology series.

Treatment for hoarding disorder : therapist guide by Gail Steketee( )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 750 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The relationship people have with their possessions ranges from purely utilitarian to intensely emotional. For most people, their personal possessions provide them with a sense of security, comfort, and pleasure. However, if someone loses the ability to distinguish useful or important possessions from those that make life overly complicated, the objects can become a prison. For people who suffer from Hoarding Disorder (HD), the process of getting rid of unneeded objects is not easy. For them, possessions never "feel" unneeded and trying to get rid of them is an excruciating emotional ordeal. This Second Edition of Treatment for Hoarding Disorder is the culmination of more than 20 years of research on understanding hoarding and building an effective intervention to address its myriad components. Thoroughly updated and reflective of changes made to the Fifth Edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders (DSM-5), this second edition of the Therapist Guide and accompanying client Workbook outlines an empirically supported and effective CBT program for treating hoarding disorder. This Therapist Guide is written for mental health clinicians-psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, counselors, and psychiatric nurses-to guide effective treatment of people with hoarding disorder. It provides numerous assessment and intervention forms to help clients use the methods described in the intervention. A major goal of the treatment is to recapture the positive role of possessions in the lives of people with hoarding problems, and strategies are outlined for sustaining gains and making further progress, as well as for managing stressful life events that can provoke problematic acquiring and difficulty discarding"--Provided by publisher

Tengo tutto : perchè non si riesce a buttare via niente by Randy O Frost( )

Cosa spinge una persona a conservare ogni singolo biglietto del treno, le ricevute dei ristoranti, gli scontrini o i biglietti di auguri di una vita? Cosa scatta nella mente di Irene, donna all'apparenza normalissima, ma che per la mania di accumulare qualsiasi cosa ha praticamente mandato all'aria il suo matrimonio? E che dire di Ralph, che per colpa della montagna di oggetti recuperati dalle discariche ha quasi perso la casa? R.O. Frost e G. Steketee, clinici tra i massimi esperti di disposofobia (accumulo compulsivo), ci presentano i casi più curiosi incontrati nella loro esperienza professionale e rispondono a una domanda che tocca ciascuno di noi: quand'è che smettiamo di possedere gli oggetti e iniziamo ad esserne posseduti? Fino a che punto possiamo parlare di stranezza, e quando invece questa si trasforma in un'ossessione e in un disturbo vero e proprio? Indagando la linea sottile dove normalità e patologia si confondono, i due autori hanno cercato di capire cosa spinge queste persone a circondarsi di oggetti inutili fino a compromettere la qualità di vita propria e di chi le circonda, aprendo così la strada alla ricerca di nuove terapie e trattamenti realmente efficaci
