Hoarding and Clutter (Virtual)
Monday, December 7
When excess belongings limit a person’s ability to use their home, it can have profound impacts on safety, health, relationships, wellbeing, daily functioning and housing security. Hoarding Disorder is a behavioral pattern characterized by difficulty discarding and sometimes excessive acquisition of items that leads to clutter, distress and impairment in functioning. Clutter can be overwhelming, but there is help available.
This class will help you:
- Identify excessive saving and acquiring behaviors
- Understand the impacts of hoarding and clutter
- Identify risk reduction techniques
- Navigate resources for assistance
This event is virtual and will be hosted using GoToMeeting. A link to the meeting and set-up instructions will be provided upon your registration.
