If you are a family member concerned about a loved one's accumulation of stuff, this book is for you. It walks you through the thought processes of people struggling with hoarding tendencies.
The book clearly covers: the definition of compulsive hoarding, how to help them accept help, and how to help them in a loving way. Harm Reduction is a big focus of this book and crucial to some people who will not agree to clearing the property. It focuses on keeping them safe in their homes and setting goals and boundaries. They also provide the structure for building a contract with your loved one and managing the harm reduction process. It is a wonderful tool for both families and professionals. I would highly suggest this book!
