CBT for Hoarding Disorder: A Group THerapy Program (Wiley-Blackwell)

Comprised of a therapist manual and client workbook, CBT for Hoarding Disorder guides group leaders through a comprehensive CBT group program for patients struggling with hoarding disorder. Filling the need created by the inclusion of hoarding disorder (HD) as its own diagnosis in the DSM-5, this program—which was created by a group of four clinical psychologists experienced in research and treatment of  problematic hoarding behavior—prioritizes experiential learning, repeated practice, skills building, and real-world discarding progress.

The therapist manual provides step-by-step, evidence-based guidance for treating hoarding with a focus on proven methods for behavior change rather than complex cognitive interventions. It contains the latest research on hoarding disorder and emphasizes the cognitive, emotional, and motivational factors involved in discarding and decision-making. The client workbook features accessible, straightforward content, including coping cards that summarize key lessons, homework assignments, motivational tools, and practice exercises for decision-making and emotion regulation skills. Easy to implement without home visits, this is a cutting-edge treatment program for professionals and group leaders of all educational backgrounds treating problematic hoarding behavior across a wide variety of treatment settings and disciplines.
