Support providers often encounter challenging situations involving hoarding and squalor. Responding appropriately requires a fundamental understanding of hoarding disorder, its underlying causes and how it affects the individual. It usually takes time to build the necessary trust and rapport before working with the client to co-design effective strategies to address the situation.

Understanding and Responding to Hoarding and Squalor Situations provides an online introduction to the topic and an exploration of practical techniques in working with clients. The training will be conducted in two learning modules.

For each module, learners will:

• receive a background reading package with discussion questions

• participate in a one-hour, on line Zoom forum. The session will be based around the module content, the discussion points and questions from participants. Participants will be able to send through questions they’d like to discuss before the sessions.
