DSPP Think Family Hoarding Toolkit

Date: Thursday, 21st Mar 2024 | Category: Adults, Children

If you follow any case of hoarding back to its roots, you’ll find a complex web of genetics, neurology, history, and psychology. Hoarding has implications for physical and mental health, wellbeing, housing tenure and safety for both children and adults, which is why intervention to help the person change their hoarding behaviour is so important. We must recognise that trauma is one of the biggest triggers of hoarding behaviour therefore a Trauma Informed Approach is crucial.
