Stuff: Compulsive Hoarding and the Meaning of Things-an Afternoon with Randy Frost

Randy Frost and Gail Steketee were the first to study hoarding a decade ago. With vivid portraits that show us the traits by which you can identify a hoarder, Frost and Steketee explain the causes, and outline the often ineffective treatments for the disorder. They also illuminate the pull that possessions exert on all of us. Whether we’re savers, collectors, or compulsive cleaners, none of us is free of the impulses that drive hoarders to the extremes in which they live. The University of Kansas Bookstore will be on hand with copies of Stuff for Dr. Frost to sign.
