Description

While hoarding is a serious problem impacting the health and safety of older adults, the condition is highly resistant to treatment.  What causes hoarding?  Why do hoarders cling to objects, animals, filth, and seemingly meaningless possessions?  This timely program will cover 1) the mental health component of hoarding, 2) developing empathy for hoarders, and 3) best practice strategies for improving quality of life for seniors who hoard and their families.  The session will also discuss strategies for dealing with hoarding in senior care communities.

 
This content is suitable for both beginning and intermediate levels. There  is relevance as it provides information on the signs and symptoms of hoarding. It also applies to intermediate levels as it expands upon the introductory level, focusing on the strategies and insights into the causes and method for working with individuals as symptoms & behaviors arise.
