P.S. Almost forgot to mention the book
"Digging Out".
For people who know a hoarder and want to help them.

Hello Erica :)

I suggest you read/study the book
"Buried In Treasures".

It uses cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help people who hoard restructure their thinking about things/items.

I am not a person who hoards but I do live with a hoarder.
This book has helped me.

At the very top of this page are links with some very good information.

Also, at the bottom left of this page is a course called
"Hoard No More".

Good Luck :)

In my work, I see some children come in with hoarding tendencies and I would like some resources to help them change their relationship to "stuff" before it becomes a real problem. I encourage counseling, but of course have no say in what is discussed at the sessions. What can I do, say, remind, that will help a child to see that choices can be made in a healthier direction? That this kind of pattern leads to a life of chaos and disorganization that is really hard to escape? Are there free resources that I can utilize in helping poverty stricken families? I am in a position to help prevent. But I am little lost in how. My mother is a hoarder, so it hits close to home, and I think I get a little shy about approaching it because it was such a volatile subject between us.
