Hoarding disorder (HD) is the acquisition and failure to discard a large number of possessions that appear to be useless or of limited value in attempt to postpone or decrease distress. Hoarding disorder, as well as other hoarding behavior, is a serious and growing problem that can lead to eviction, homelessness, and death, and comprise some 40% of the hoarding complaints to local health departments. Those most at risk are frail older adults with poor physical and social capacity who live in these highly cluttered and unsafe environments. Furthermore, those with the problem often have other psychiatric disorders as well as little awareness of the consequences they face living in a hoarded environment. In this 3-hour webinar, Dr. Tompkins describes hoarding disorder, harm potential, features of the condition, and typical intervention options for the problem.
Learning Objectives • Attendees will be able to define hoarding disorder. • Attendees will be able identify factors that influence harm potential. • Attendees will be able to identify intervention options for hoarding disorder.
