The aim of this workshop is to familiarize you with hoarding disorder, a common and potentially severe mental health problem characterized by acquisition of, and failure to discard, a large number of possessions to the extent that living spaces become uninhabitable. We will review emerging data investigating the nature of hoarding, associated mental health features, and new research findings regarding brain function in people who hoard.
To date, hoarding disorder has frustrated mental health and social service workers due to its apparently chronic and treatment-resistant nature. Many hoarders are reluctant to seek help, and even those who do seek help frequently resist therapists’ efforts to intervene. Clinical studies, therefore, have consistently shown a poor response to psychological and pharmacologic treatments. Recently, however, a new model of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) as emerged based on our increasing understanding of hoarding. In this workshop, you will learn specific skills to increase patients’ motivation and compliance, challenge maladaptive ways of thinking, and learn new behavior patterns. We will also discuss possibilities for further development of the CBT model, including augmentation with cognition-enhancing exercises and medications as well as the collaboration between mental health professional and paraprofessionals.
Speaker: David F. Tolin, PhD
