Example text

Com/us/ttw. Both clients and clinicians can complete the measure. ■ The Saving Cognitions Inventory (Steketee, Frost, & Kyrios, ) is a -item self-report questionnaire that assesses beliefs and attitudes clients experience when trying to discard items. Four subscales focus on emotional attachment to objects, beliefs about objects as memory aids, responsibility for not wasting possessions, and the need for control over possessions. . This questionnaire can be found in the corresponding client workbook.

Some negotiation may be needed to give the client appropriate control over some spaces in the home. Questions about who has the right to handle belongings and to control household spaces will need to be negotiated as the intervention progresses. The final plan must ensure that clients use new skills in problem solving, decision making, and organizing, as well as evaluating their own beliefs and managing their emotional reactions to not acquiring and letting go. This will require family members to refrain from special accommodations (making decisions, providing unnecessary reassurance, and taking over duties like trash removal and controlling acquiring) that prevent clients from learning new behaviors.

At this early stage we frequently do not search for the client’s core beliefs, because they are more difficult to identify and gradually become more apparent during the work on clutter and acquiring problems. Thus, core beliefs are discussed in later chapters. Why Develop a Model of Hoarding? Recall from chapter  that hoarding behavior is complex, deriving from a combination of vulnerabilities, core beliefs, information processing problems, beliefs about and meanings of possessions, emotional responses, and learned behaviors.
