Unburying the Truth About Hoarding
with Terina Bainter
Back a Second Time by VERY Popular Demand!!
This seminar will be an even more in-depth examination of hoarding disorder than Terina's April 2018 presentation.
Terina will start with a brief review of what hoarding is, expanding into what characteristics are seen, how they show up in the client, and what telling signs you, as a professional, should be looking for, some of which you may be seeing already in your own clients.
Gain a clearer understanding of when it is hoarding and when it may be some other co-occurring condition, to prepare yourself as the professional.
Learn how to approach the client, with some useful phrases to employ. See how your initial contact with the client will set the tone for the rest of the relationship.
Get tools to evaluate where and how to start in the home: determining the level of coordinated care (if any is needed); learn when a Safety Day team approach is needed and where to start with that next step.
