Understanding Hoarding by Jo Cooke
Compulsive hoarding can make life a misery, affecting health, well-being and lifestyle, and posing a significant risk of fire, illness, infestation and other dangers. Hoarding touches the whole family and, in extreme cases, impinges on basic freedoms, such as space in which to eat, do paperwork or even sleep. Packing with practical advice, Understanding Hoardingaims to help those with hoarding difficulties and those that live with them. It is also a useful resource for friends and professionals.
This book is an absolute Godsend to people who are hoarders and the ones they love.
The book is published by Sheldon Press and can be found on Amazon and other sites.
