Hoarding Disorder: A Foundation in Identification and Treatment (Salisbury Main Campus)

Description:

**NOTE:  LOCATED ON SALISBURY UNIVERSITY'S MAIN CAMPUS**

Building on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, 5th Edition (DSM-V), the first portion of presentation will familiarize participants with the criteria of Hoarding Disorder, comorbid diagnoses, and situational challenges that these individuals often face. Presenter will incorporate aspects of clinical experiences when providing contexts for the manifestations of Hoarding Disorder. Participants will be encouraged to look beyond the external presentation, which often overwhelms both the professional and the client.

The second portion of the workshop focuses on the assessment of hoarding behaviors. The presenter will review clinical assessment tools that are designed to measure the different facets of hoarding disorder - acquisition, letting go, emotional attachment, distorted cognitions, and accumulation in living spaces. Participants will be encouraged to incorporate these tools into their work with hoarding situations - assessment, intervention, monitoring and maintenance.

Lastly, the presentation will address the range of treatment interventions and resources available to professionals working with this population. Participants will learn about potential barriers, both internal and external, that could interfere with an individual's sucesses in treatment. The presenter will identify ways in which these insights can be incorporated into effective interventions.

Limitations and Risks:  While the material included in this presentation is detailed and extensive, it does not cover all the hoarding-related scenarios that participants may encounter. Participants will be encouraged to seek further training, supervision, and case consultation when applying the workshop information to their clinical work. There are no inherent risks associated with the interventions or approaches outlined in this workshop. Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and hoarding interventions often involve discussing unpleasant aspects of clients' lives and they may experience transient uncomfortable feelings like sadness, guilt, anger, frustration, loneliness, and helplessness. On the other hand, these therapies and interventions have also been shown to have many benefits, including solutions to specific problems, and significant reductions in feelings of distress.
