Chapter 5 briefly discusses insight and motivation problems, and guides clinicians through the use of motivational enhancement methods with clients who experience and display ambivalence about working on their hoarding and acquiring problems. Clinicians begin with a detailed discussion of clients’ personal values and goals to provide a firm foundation. Following Miller and Rollnick’s work on motivational interviewing, basic assumptions of this approach are described. The chapter describes a variety of specific strategies to help clients resolve ambivalence whenever this occurs during the therapy process.
