**This is an Intermediate Level Course**
Description: Hoarding Disorder has only recently been officially recognized as a disorder in the DSM-5 (2013). Given this, few mental health professionals have received training in what constitutes Hoarding Disorder and how to treat this challenging mental health issue. This workshop will cover factors that contribute to the development of Hoarding Disorder. The program will also focus on key components in the cognitive-behavioral treatment model and interventions developed by Steketee & Frost (2007), including video demonstrations.
At the completion of this program, participants will be able to
- Identify the clinical features of Hoarding Disorder, including the DSM-5 criteria for its diagnosis.
- Identify key features in compulsive hoarding and in those who compulsively hoard.
- Describe the components of cognitive-behavioral treatment and interventions specific to Hoarding Disorder.
- Describe ways to enhance motivation in those who compulsively hoard.
