Project Description

In recent years the previously neglected area of compulsive hoarding have come under increased research scrutiny and clinical models have been tested. However, the evidence base for treatment of hoarding is thin and evaluations have tended to lack true scientific rigor. This doctorate would make use of randomized controlled trial methodologies to investigate the clinical efficacy of various cognitive therapies. The project would suit someone who has ambitions to become a clinical psychologist.
