This book is a further step towards building a successful long-term management strategy for self-neglect and hoarding, rather than just a guide focusing on resolving the obvious, outward manifestations. It provides a great example of a 'journey of support' for the affected individual whilst not forgetting the legal obligations and moral duties of professionals. I'm confident, with the toolkit for a patient centred approach outlined in this book, our management of this disorder, with its considerable societal risks, will improve dramatically.

Self-Neglect and Hoarding contains much of the information practitioners will need in working with self-neglect. Barnett's emphasis throughout is on a person-centred approach to this important issue.
