Topic: Hoarding Behaviors: An Approach to Thoughts & Feelings

Guest Speaker: Jane Roberts, LCSW, ACSW, Ph.D. Chair of Duvall Family Studies, USF

Approaching a client or family where there is hoarding is often difficult. Current research notes that hoarding is now seen as a problem with attachment (to people or things) ad can be handles sensitively.

Dr. Roberts has engaged in research of hoarding behaviors for the past decade and her approach to therapy with hoarding individuals has been successful. She teaches in the Interdisciplinary Social Sciences program at USF in Sarasota.
