MEMBERS ONLY: Hoarding Awareness Training (Thurrock)
November 16 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm
MEMBERS ONLY TRAINING
Course Title: Hoarding Awareness Workshop: A Full Day Training Workshop
Subject Category: Hoarding Awareness Skills
- To enable learners to fully understand how hoarding affects people
- To empower the learners to empathise with people suffering from Hoarding Disorder
- To explore ways to develop skills for helping clients to help themselves and how to overcome their inability to dispose of their belongings
Course Overview: Most hoarded properties are ‘cleared out’ by cleaning teams. This leads to greater distress and more intense hoarding activity. Clients with hoarding disorder need understanding and empathy in order to help them to develop new behaviours to cope with their excess belongings. This course gives an overview of the condition and draws on the experiences of the practitioner/trainer in developing skills to work with people who hoard.
Pre Course Requirements: None
Name of Trainer: Heather Matuozzo
Method of Delivery: A PowerPoint presentation acts as a prompt to explain and explore possible interventions, using real life examples and video footage for insight. Where possible, a person who has experienced hoarding issues will speak at the end of the day providing personal stories and answering questions.
Who should attend: Anyone encountering people with hoarding issues or neglect.
Course Level: Introductory
Course Timings: This full day course will run from 10am to 4.30pm with a short comfort break and a lunch break.
