Chapter 8 encourages clinicians to assist clients in learning various skills to assist them in sorting and organizing the clutter items. Several forms are used to assist in the organizing process, including a list of tasks, a plan for where to keep objects and papers, including suggestions for how long to keep certain types of important papers. Preparation for organizing includes assembling materials needed for filing and storing items. Clinicians train clients in problem-solving skills to enable them to move forward when challenges to organizing and sorting arise. Decision-making practice occurs in concert with training in how and where to keep wanted items, as well as where to put unwanted items to remove them from the home.
