Managing Hoarding in COVID Times
Wendy and Angela will present Managing Hoarding in COVID Times at the APDO Virtual Conference.
Many people think that resolving a hoarding situation starts with rolling up your sleeves and getting rid of the accumulated clutter. In reality, the most important work is done before any discarding action takes place.
Anxiety is a core component of hoarding disorder and we are currently living in very anxiety producing times.
Even if you can’t work with your clients face to face, you can still take steps to address hoarding and squalor by:
• Building a respectful, trusting relationship.
• Identifying risks and encouraging targeted activities to improve safety.
• Providing avenues to seek support and stay motivated and accountable.
We will draw on our experience of working hand in hand with the government housing dept throughout one of the world’s harshest COVID lockdowns.
In this workshop, delegates will learn practical strategies for keeping their hoarding clients engaged, motivated, safe and on track while maintaining safe practice.
