The Secret Life of Hoarding

ID: 1130WEB

According to the International OCD Foundation (IOCD): "Hoarding has been a hidden disorder for many years and before the early 1990?s, there was little research on topic." Increased awareness with hoarding, throughout the lifespan, has occurred due to clinical issues such as unhealthy living conditions that impact individuals, families, and communities. This webinar will concentrate on the older adult who meets the criteria of Hoarding Disorder as per the DSM 5. Participants will practice skills in working with the older adult who meets this criteria as well as identifying strategies for family members who are involved with an older adult who is diagnosed with this disorder.
