SKU ID #356756
The book, Digging Out : Helping Your Loved One Manage Clutter, Hoarding, and Compulsive Acquiring (Paperback) Book is an important read if you have a friend or family member who acquires an excessive amount of stuff (newspapers, old scraps of cloth, unworn clothes) and has difficulty discarding things. If they usually live in a cluttered space, and their lives are impaired by all of this stuff, it's likely that he or she is a hoarder. People who hoard often live in unsafe and unsanitary conditions because they are unable to throw anything away. "Digging Out" is the first book to help friends and family members keep their loved ones safe from the dangers of compulsive acquiring. Using a technique called harm reduction, which aims to reduce safety risk rather than force a hoarder to discard possessions, readers will be able to set small, achievable goals for their loved ones. The realistic exercises in the book focus on helping a loved one live safely and comfortably at home. Readers will work together with hoarders to set valid and meaningful goals and incentive to work toward them.
