Hoarding Disorder: The Diagnosis They Never Taught You in Graduate School
Friday, September 26, 2014 9:00am-12:15pm
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 the new DSM-5 criteria for Hoarding Disorder as well as factors that contribute to the development of hoarding. In addition, the program will focus on key components in the cognitive-behavioral treatment model and interventions developed by Steketee & Frost (2007), including video demonstrations and an opportunity to role-play relevant skills.
Helping Loved Ones of Those With Hoarding Disorder
Saturday, October 11, 2014 9:00am-12:15pm
Hoarding Disorder not only impacts those with this complex condition, but their loved ones as well. In addition, many people with Hoarding Disorder have difficulty recognizing or acknowledging their hoarding issues or are reluctant to participate in treatment. Given this, it is often their loved ones who seek professional help in understanding and addressing this significant and complex psychological condition. In addition to education regarding hoarding, the workshop will focus on ways that individuals can most effectively help a loved one with hoarding issues, from assisting in treatment homework to harm reduction strategies.
Workshops are open to mental health professionals and graduate students in mental health training programs. Both workshops will take place at HRC-PA in Chapel Hill, 100 Europa Drive, Ste 260.
Individual workshops are $65.00 or $120 for both workshops.
