Is Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) the only factor of Hoarding? By: Amanda B. Burney

No! There are lot of factors that go into hoarding, however, I’m only interested in the medical and clinical factors; such as Anxiety Depression

Definitions & Additional Facts • “Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder characterized by uncontrollable, unwanted thoughts and repetitive, ritualized behaviors you feel compelled to perform.” (Segal et al.) • “Depressed hoarders might react to discarding items with a feeling of loss or grief…”(Hall et al.) Using neuropsychology, we can measure the psychological function linked to the brain structure, helping to find the cause of this dejected state. • Some people might ask, “How do you know if your actually a hoarder?” or “What’s the difference between hoarding and collecting?”.
