Book: “Buried in Treasures: Help for Compulsive Acquiring, Saving, and Hoarding”, David F. Tolin, Randy O. Frost, & Gail Steketee, second edition (Oxford University Press, 2014). My favorite self-help book for those who have symptoms of hoarding disorder. This easy read explains the phenomenon of hoarding to people who hoard and their families.
Book: “Overcoming Compulsive Hoarding”, by Fugen Neziroglu, Jerome Bubrick and Jose Yaryura-Tobias (New Harbinger Publications, 2004). A book for people who hoard and for their families. This book provides background on the phenomenon of hoarding and gives direction on how to address it, both as self-help and as family intervention. Also helpful in developing a general understanding of hoarding or a plan for assisting someone who hoards.
Book: “Digging out: Helping your Loved One Manage Clutter, Hoarding, and Compulsive Acquiring” by Michael A. Tompkins, & Tamara L. Hartl (New Harbinger Publications, 2009). Introduction to the concept of harm reduction – the improvement and not necessarily the elimination of a problem behavior—as it applies to hoarding behavior. Helpful when working with the client’s family and with clients who are unable or unwilling to fully dismantle their hoard.
