SCHMIDT, Diego Rafael  and  DELLA MEA, Cristina Pilla. Psychological symptom evaluation in accumulation disorder: A case study. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.16, n.3, pp. 268-277. ISSN 1677-0471.

Accumulation disorder (AD) is characterized by the acquisition of unnecessary items, difficulty in disposing objects, and disorganization of the convivial environment. The case study analyzes personality characteristics and comorbid psychological symptoms in a patient diagnosed with AD. For data collection, a semi-structured interview was used, the Young Schema Questionnaire (YSQ-S2), the Young Parenting Styles Inventory (PSI), the Beck Depression Inventory and the Beck Anxiety Inventory (BDI-II and BAI, respectively), the Lipp Stress Symptoms Inventory (LSSI), and the Rorschach Method. In the results, we observed the presence of Early Maladaptive Schemas (EMS) belonging to the disconnection and rejection domain, suggesting a connection between AD symptoms and negative emotional experiences experienced by the patient during childhood. In the future, new studies with a cross-sectional design are recommended in order to substantiate the results obtained by the present research.

Keywords : Accumulation disorder; Depression; Anxiety; Early Maladaptive Schemas.
