Advances in Treatments for Hoarding Disorder: A Closer Look at Our Findings

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Our research panel will present studies aimed at discussing treatment advances for hoarding. Topics will include the resource needs and interventions associated with hoarding across the domains of housing, healthcare, and public safety; research on case management activities and their application to the problem of hoarding by four communities; the Family-As-Motivators Training, a training program for family members aimed to increase treatment-seeking behavior among hoarding patients, and enhance family members' well-being; and the nature of hoarding among youth with high functioning autism spectrum disorders, as well as its response to cognitive-behavioral treatment. The presenters will synthesize these studies and discuss future directions.
