Self-neglect and hoarding is present in 1 of 5 social work cases in mental health and older people's services. These cases can be the most alarming and challenging on a social worker's caseload.

A skilled, thorough risk assessment of the behaviours of self-neglect is needed in order to ensure effective care and support is available. This guide offers practical and applicable tools and solutions for all professionals involved in working with people who self-neglect. It includes tips for assessment and decision-making in the support process, and updates following the implementation of the Care Act 2014, which deemed self-neglect a safeguarding matter.

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. -- Dr. Roberta Caiazza, HCPC registered Senior Clinical Psychologist 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. -- Dr. David Orr, Senior Lecturer in Social Work, University of Sussex
