Compulsive hoarding behaviors can have serious consequences for people who struggle with it and their families.   Hoarding is still stigmatized and frequently underreported.   Through this workshop social workers/mental health professionals will learn more about identifying Hoarding disorder as a diagnosis, using assessment tools with someone struggling with excessive accumulation of belongings, and learning about some practical tools they can use in their practice as well as available resources for professionals, family and friends.
