A cross-discipline team approach
According to the American Psychiatric Association approximately 2 to 6 percent of the population suffers from a hoarding disorder. People with a hoarding disorder can create situations that cause health and safety concerns and leads to those on the front lines of enforcement to uncover these individuals. Dealing with hoarders on an individual basis can be time consuming and ineffective if the underlying mental health issues are not addressed. This program will give you tools to create teams in your area to effectively help people with hoarding disorders by working together to address this mental illness.
This virtual interactive course is designed to give potential cross-discipline teams a way to come together with guided brainstorming and the ability to ask questions in order to create their own hoarding taskforce. We encourage participants who are contemplating developing hoarding taskforces, partnerships, or teams to attend the training together but this is not required.
Some key takeaways will be:
- Ways to identify collaborative opportunities
- Tools to help secure buy-in and engagement from community partners
- Tips in implementing collaborative community solutions
- Ideas for establishing uniform protocols
Who Should Attend
Social workers, counselors, therapists, police and fire department personnel, health department personnel, property management, and code enforcement personnel
