Event description
In this PDP, Dr. James Collett discusses what the research evidence tells us about hoarding, and outlines helpful strategies.

About this event

Overview

When a person experiences great difficulty parting with their possessions, despite having to endure a cluttered, non-functional home as a result, we call this phenomenon hoarding. Hoarding difficulties are prevalent and often result in personal distress and isolation, tensions with loved ones and the wider community, and problems such as squalor and increased fire risk. In this presentation, Dr. James Collett discusses what the research evidence tells us about hoarding, and outlines the helpful strategies that can be used to help people who are struggling with their attachment to material possessions.

Attendees will learn:

  • How hording symptoms appear to develop
  • How to distinguish between hoarding and other mental health problems
  • How to differentiate hoarding from non-harmful attachment to possessions
  • What tools exist to help assess the presence and severity of hoarding
  • The different strategies available to help with hoarding problems
  • The role of family members and friends in supporting individuals managing hoarding problems

Key Therapeutic or Treatment Strategies:

Attendees will learn various treatment strategies for working with hoarding disorder, broadly framed within a cognitive-behavioural approach.

Target audience

This workshop is pitched at professionals such as psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and allied health practitioners.
