Description

Hoarding disorder is an increasing issue and is especially visible in the older adult population. It can produce a number of significant health risks and lead to increased interpersonal problems and isolation for older adults. This training will review the diagnostic criteria for hoarding disorder, as well as other common behaviors and cognitions observed in the disorder. Prevalence and special considerations in the older adult population will be discussed. The training will also review assessments commonly used to identify and treat hoarding disorder. Specific treatment interventions that have shown to be effective with the general population and the older adult population specifically will be discussed in detail and practical application. This training will also focus on the symptoms and behavior of hoarding, reasons for hoarding, diminished quality of life, and co-morbid anxiety disorders which often present with compulsive hoarding diagnoses. The training will review therapeutic interventions used to treat hoarding and how support personnel can assist with treatment goals.

Objectives

  • Participants will learn how hoarding is defined, diagnosed and common features in the disorder.
  • Participants will learn how hoarding disorder presents in older adults, and its prevalence.
  • Participants will learn what types of interventions work best for treating hoarding disorder, across older adult populations and other populations.
  • Participants will identify symptoms of hoarding, beyond just accumulation of objects.
