What compels hoarders to save every newspaper, cardboard box, and item of clothing? Gail Steketee, a [...]professor of psychology and dean of the School of Social Work, has been studying hoarding for 15 years and is the coauthor of three books on the subject. Her most recent, written with Randy Frost, a professor of psychology at Smith College, is "Stuff: Compulsive Hoarding and the Meaning of Things."
Gail Steketee, dean ad interim of Boston University's School of Social Work, presents her research on compulsive hoarding behavior. She discusses the features and demographics associated with the disorder and talks about the effectiveness of several therapies, emphasizing the importance of grounding change in the client's personal goals and values.
