2012 Orange County Task Force on Hoarding Hoarding Disorder Symposium

February 10, 2012
Heritage Hall, Walter D. Ehlers Recreation Center
8150 Knott Ave., Buena Park, Calif., 90620
The Hoarding Disorder Symposium is a full day training opportunity for
human service professionals. The symposium presents harm reduction as an alternative to treatment for hoarding disorder. Harm reduction assumes that it is not necessary to stop all compulsive acquiring or to clear homes completely
in order to reduce the risk of harm and improve the health, safety, and
comfort of persons who hoard. The workshop presents the essential features of the harm reduction process applied to the problem of severe hoarding. The workshop will describe strategies for engaging the client in the harm reduction process, building and facilitating the harm reduction team,
assessing harm potential, and developing and managing a harm reduction plan.
