Animals Today February 24, 2013 – Dr. Randy Frost discusses animal hoarding

This week, Peter welcomed Smith College Professor of Psychology, Randy Frost, to explore the minds and behaviors of animal hoarders. Frost is an internationally recognized leader in the field of hoarding and his latest book, Stuff – Compulsive Hoarding and the Meaning of Things (co-authored with Gail Steketee), has received great reviews. Check it out here on Amazon. Animal hoarding shares some similarities to and many differences from the hoarding of objects. Dr. Frost explained current thoughts on how animal hoarding develops and possible new avenues for treatment, which is notoriously ineffective. You can read more about Professor Frost here, but he suggested interested listeners visit the website of the International OCD Foundation, ocfoundation.org.
