Chapter 11 reviews a variety of potential complicating factors that may arise during the course of treatment of hoarding and acquiring problems. These cover the following topics: medical problems, financial needs, family responses and family members with hoarding, housing needs, safety problems, endangerment of children and elders living in or near the home, and animal care. In addition, people who hoard may suffer from comorbid mental health problems such as depression, generalized and social anxieties, OCD, attention deficits, stealing, trauma histories, and cognitive disabilities. Strategies for managing these problems are suggested.
