Abstract (Summary)

A review of the literature has suggested that compulsive hoarding is a growing social problem in the United States. Individuals who hoarded often lack insights to their problems, and resist in getting assistance that is much needed. Despite the fact that social workers respect the internal dignity and worth of the person, when an individual is considered to be a danger to self on situations such as self-neglect, it is then the social worker's responsibility to intervene immediately.

The purpose of this project was to identify potential funding sources, and write a grant proposal to fund training on compulsive hoarding for case managers and social workers at the Older Adults Program of Special Service for Groups, Inc. This training would allow the trainees to learn and understand more about compulsive hoarding, and in return provide effective interventions or service delivery in their social work practice.
