58: Hoarding: Two Experts, Part 2
Listen now
We continue with a Part 2 segment on the topic of hoarding. Many underlying issues play into disorders around hoarding, and they may vary widely from person to person. The good news is that there are multi-faceted resources and professionals available to help and jumpstart the process of change! I’m joined by Dr. Leslie Hatch Gail, a professional organizer, presenter, and hoarding consultant. From her background as an educator, Dr. Leslie obtained her Ph.D. in Community Psychology and formed a new approach to those with organizational challenges, coming from a place of curiosity and a genuine desire to help. Join us to learn more!   Show Highlights:  ●      How Dr. Leslie became a professional organizer ●      How the hoarding TV shows usually try to present the person’s background and trauma that have led to hoarding tendencies ●      How hoarding was originally classified as a subtype of OCD and not its own disorder ●      Why many hoarders think they need the protection of “stuff” because they have been violated in some way ●      Why simply cleaning out a hoarder’s stuff does NOT fix the problem or help in the long run ●      The best ways to help raise awareness about hoarding disorders ●      The stages of readiness in making changes: awareness (thinking about change), planning action, and taking action ●      How Dr. Leslie uses an icebreaker worksheet to start the conversation about possible hoarding problems ●      Where to begin if you need help with hoarding issues and want to change   Resources and Links: Connect with Dr. Leslie Hatch Gail: Website, Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook Mentioned by Dr. Leslie: Helpful resources through the Chicagoland Hoarding Task Force Connect with KC: Website, TikTok, Instagram, and Facebook Get KC’s book, How to Keep House While Drowning We love the sponsors that make this show possible!
