Experimental: Group Cognitive-Behavioral Thearapy
Sixteen sessions of group therapy facilitated by a psychologist.
Behavioral: Group Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Group therapy over approximately 20 weeks, based on a structured manual adapted from the individual CBT workbook for hoarding by Steketee and Frost (2006). Each session will be 2 hours in length and consists of weekly check-ins, psychoeducation about hoarding, developing understanding and awareness of one's hoarding symptoms and patterns, behavior modification, cognitive restructuring, goal-setting, motivational enhancement, in vivo and imaginal exposure for discarding and acquisition, executive skills training (organization, sorting, planning, decision-making, problem-solving, etc.), guidelines on establishing "clutter buddies", and relapse prevention. Groups will be led by clinical postdoctoral psychology fellows in the Department of Psychiatry at UCSF.
Experimental: Peer Facilitated Manualized Support Group
Sixteen sessions of peer-facilitated group support.
Behavioral: Peer Facilitated Manualized Support Group
Sixteen sessions of peer facilitated, group support, over the course of 20 weeks, based on a structured manualized approach (Buried in Treasures: Help for Compulsive Acquiring, Saving, and Hoarding). Each session will be 2 hours in length. In this model, two trained peers, usually, but not necessarily, with personal lived experience of hoarding, will guide the group chapter by chapter through the Buried in Treasures manual.
- Saving Inventory-Revised (SI-R) [ Time Frame: Administered at screening before start of treatment groups and after last treatment group (20 weeks later). ]This is a 26-item self-report questionnaire that measures hoarding symptoms and their impact, including problems with acquisition, clutter, and difficulty discarding, as well as distress and impairment/interference.
- Neuropsychological Test Battery [ Time Frame: Administered at screening before start of treatment groups and after last treatment group (20 weeks later). ]The primary purpose of the neuropsychological evaluation is to characterize aspects of executive function (visual and verbal learning and memory, categorization, information processing speed, visual spatial perception, abstract reasoning abilities, attention).
