The February 15, 2014 episode of the radio talk show “Psych Up with Dr. Suzanne Phillips” features an interview with Dr. Fugen Neziroglu about Neziroglu’s new book, “Children of Hoarders: How to Minimize Conflict, Reduce the Clutter, and Improve Your Relationship.”
In the interview, Drs. Phillips and Neziroglu explore the ways that hoarding may affect family relationships, particularly the relationships between parents and children. They also discuss ways that children might respond to a parent’s hoarding behaviors, including an exploration of communication strategies and techniques that may help to add balance to the relationship between children of hoarders and their parents.
Also in the interview, Dr. Neziroglu describes differences between hoarding and cluttering and differences between primary hoarding and secondary hoarding.
