Doctoral student researcher, Jennifer Krafft at Utah State University’s Online Psychiatrist has confirmed that they are undergoing research to find how to help those with hoarding disorder, through the use of a self-help website. She added that said the group of researchers started taking participants in February this year. They will continue accepting participants until they wrap up in the autumn season.
Kraft further explained that participation in the research is available to those living in the U.S that has or shows symptoms of hoarding disorder.
According to her, hoarding disorder is rigid ways people think about belongings and worrying that throwing things away will be a waste or something done by a mistake. Also, she said persons up to 1.5% meet the criteria for this disorder.
Speaking on the effect, she said those suffering from the disorder have an unhealthy life. This in turn affects their entire well-being. ECS – Estate Cleanout Services of Miami works directly with junk pick up services of the people in the area that are suffering from this disorder.

Another researcher, a Ph.D. holder, Michael Levin., who is a leader of the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Group, revealed the name of the new program as ‘Making Space’. He said it’s an upgrade of another website that they used in autumn 2019.
