Code: BH/22/0333 Hoarding Awareness Workshop (EVENT FULL)

Most hoarded properties are ‘cleared out’ by cleaning teams. This leads to greater distress and more intense hoarding activity. Clients with hoarding disorder need understanding and empathy in order to help them to develop new behaviours to cope with their excess belongings. This course gives an overview of the condition and draws on the experiences of the practitioner/trainer in developing skills to work with people who hoard.   

This course is aimed at housing staff and social workers, and takes into consideration the knowledge and skills statement for social workers.
