The trauma-informed approaches to hoarding disorder course has been rolled out to over 300 health and housing professionals and considers hoarding disorder as a mental illness as well as a tenancy governance issue.

Description

For tenancy management, hoarding has become one of the leading causes of eviction. With a prevalence rate that is more than treble that of schizophrenia and OCD, hoarding disorder is remarkably unresponsive to medication, and house clearances have a 100% relapse rate without therapeutic input.

The trauma-informed approaches to hoarding disorder course has been rolled out to over 300 health and housing professionals across England and Wales and considers hoarding disorder as a mental illness as well as a tenancy governance issue.

With this in mind, our online course will consider hoarding disorder in a holistic and therapeutic context, exploring alternatives to house clearances and eviction, and looking at the positives to buying into a new model of support for this incredibly complex and often misunderstood illness.

What will I learn?

During this training course, you will:

  • Learn why people hoard
  • Explore hoarding in a pandemic
  • Discover early signs of hoarding and how to start a compassionate dialogue
  • Look at types of hoarding, and where these fit into the new diagnostic criteria of hoarding disorder
  • Hoarding from a tenancy governance perspective – the impact of enforcement action and house clearances
  • Treatment pathways and practical support.
Who should attend?

All those looking to expand their knowledge on hoarding, allowing the expertise of a variety of delegates from across all different fields to be channelled. Hoarding is an issue that will invariably be encountered not only by professionals working in housing and mental health, but emergency services, social services, environmental health and local authorities.

Benefits of attending

Here at CIH, we want to provide everyone involved in housing with the skills and knowledge needed to cope in the current pandemic.
