Hoarding: An Integrated Approach

Workshop Description:

Hoarding has received increased media attention in recent years, resulting in more recognition of the problem and more clients seeking service for the disorder. The new DSM-5 has revised its previous stance of listing it as a symptom under OCD to creating its own diagnostic category or hoarding disorder.

These changes impel us as professionals to move beyond the stereotypes to a clearer understanding of the disorder. What are its symptoms and triggers? What is fact vs. fiction about the demographics? What struggles are faced by the client and concerned others? How does one intervene and what strategies most successfully treat? What are the ethical and boundary challenges?

This workshop will address these issues through a combination of lecture, handout materials, group participation and discussion.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to:
