This day-long workshop will offer a comprehensive overview of hoarding that will address the learning needs of the wide variety of professionals who work with the disorder, including therapists, home-based workers, coaches, first responders, social service agencies, housing agencies, professional organizers, and peer response teams. The workshop is broken into two sessions, with a lunch break and afternoon coffee break.
 
The first session will cover the following topics: hoarding prevalence, causes, manifestations, motivation and insight in individuals with the disorder, diagnostic criteria, and current and emerging research on hoarding disorder. All attendees of this Pre-Conference Training Session will come together for this first session.

Following the above, attendees will break out into one of three groups — clinicians/therapists, community responders, or peer responders — for hands-on training in hoarding interventions. Attendees in each group will learn key skills about how a community response to hoarding can help all individuals affected by hoarding disorder, with a special emphasis on the role(s) their particular group can play.
