Event description



Hoarding is a complex mental health condition recognized as a distinct mental illness. Individuals with this disorder have a pathological attachment to their possessions, which is often more important than human relationships.

This introductory workshop will help participants explore the distinctions between clutter, chronic disorganization, hoarding disorder and squalor. DSM-V clinical diagnostic criteria will be reviewed as well as demographic statistics of the prevalence of hoarding disorder.

Assessment and intervention strategies will be used through review of assesment tools and case examples.

Participants will become familiar with the "Harm Reduction" approach to addressing health and safety code violations.

Clinical interventions utilizing motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy and exposure therapy will also be touched upon.
