Understanding and Responding to Hoarding and Squalor (3)

An online introduction and an exploration of practical techniques in working with clients.

Online Sessions for Support Providers

Understanding and Responding to Hoarding and Squalor will be conducted by Glen Sorensen, Age Communication, in two Zoom learning modules.

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.

Registration is for both modules, so participants need to be able to commit to both.

For each module, learners will:

  • receive a background reading package with discussion questions
  • participate in a one-hour, online 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.

Module 1:  Understanding Hoarding and Squalor

  • Key definitions – hoarding, collecting, clutter, squalor
  • Common characteristics
  • Causes and contributing factors
  • Common issues for support providers
  • Assessment tools
  • Available resources.

Module 2:  Responding Appropriately to Hoarding and Squalor Situations

  • Engaging and establishing trusting relationships with clients
  • Planning and sequencing support strategies
  • Working in challenging domestic environments
  • Further training opportunities and resources.

Please note: Glen will provide a Zoom invitation prior to the event.
