My name is Tracey M. Biagas. I am a doctoral student at Capella University. I am conducting a research study about compulsive hoarding. The purpose of this research study is to understand the factors, which may lead to compulsive hoarding in adulthood; and how such factors influence the progression of compulsive hoarding across the life span.
This research study is conducted on the Internet. You must be willing to spend two (2) hours or less answering survey questionnaires. You do not have to provide your name or address. Participation in this research study is voluntary. There are no benefits for participating in the study. A $100.00 gift card from 1-800-GOT-JUNK is being offered as incentive for participating in the study. Only one gift card is available. A random drawing for the gift card will be held at the end of the study. Your participation is completely confidential.
