Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Licensed clinical social worker interventions to help compulsive hoarders in Long Beach: A grant proposal
by Lopez, Rebecca M., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2010, 65; 1486320
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to create a contracted position for a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) to work with the City of Long Beach's Hoarding Task Force to meet the needs of residents who are demonstrating clinical hoarding behaviors. A grant was written to the California Endowment on behalf of the City of Long Beach's Department of Health and Human Services to fund this project. The LCSW will work directly with clients who have compulsive hoarding behaviors by providing assessments, case management, and therapeutic interventions. Pre-tests and post-tests will be utilized to measure the effectiveness of services provided by the appointed LCSW. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
