Abstract

In this paper, an adaptive cognitive agent model is presented that describes both the process of development of a hoarding disorder and recovery from it by therapy. The adaptive agent model was evaluated by simulation experiments and comparison of them with expected patterns known from the literature. Moreover, mathematical analysis was performed of the equilibria of the agent model and used to verify the model. The model can be the basis for a virtual agent model that may support a therapist in their training or in their professional life.
