Effective Solutions for Hoarding: Creating Change when Services are Scarce
3:15 pm - 4:45 pm
This workshop is part of the 2019 Rural & Remote Mental Health Symposium taking place in Adelaide, South Australia
Wendy Hanes, CPO, CPO-CD, and Angela Esnouf, have been selected to present a 90-minute workshop.
Hoarding is not a problem fixed quickly, or in isolation. Media often focus on extreme decluttering as being the solution to a hoarding problem. Most people are not aware that there are alternative approaches that may better suit their needs. We’ll look at four alternative approaches and five questions to help you clarify the client’s goal. And examine effective strategies for creating lasting change when access to services is limited.
After attending this session, participants will be able to…
• Identify whether extreme clutter is the result of hoarding or some other factor
• Clarify client goals in order to bring the best solution
• Understand effective techniques which can help clients who are not in a state of readiness
• Implement the Graded Clean technique, currently considered best practice for long term results
• Implement the GRIP technique, useful for helping clients who have been diagnosed with OCD and severe anxiety disorders.
• Empower communities and local service providers to effectively support the person who is hoarding
