"Hoarding Disorder" is a persistent difficulty discarding or parting with possessions because of a perceived need to save them. A person with hoarding disorder experiences distress at the thought of getting rid of items regardless of their actual value. Hoarding has a profound impact on families and disorders range from mild to severe cases of accumulating an unnecessary and unsafe amount of items. This workshop offers new insights from experts and effective intervention strategies. Practical resources for family caregivers, social workers and healthcare professionals will also be shared from a panel of experts.
