Abstract and Keywords

Hoarding behaviors occur frequently in youth yet, relative to adults, have received little empirical attention. There are significant differences in the clinical and developmental presentation of children and adults with hoarding symptoms. As such, phenomenological inferences made from adult hoarding samples may not directly carryover to youth. The authors review the literature available on hoarding behaviors in children and adolescents, including clinical characteristics, comorbidity, assessment measures, and treatment options. A developmentally sensitive model of childhood hoarding is presented as well as recommendations for future research.
