Hoarding Intervention Conference
Please share widely!
The 3rd Annual Hoarding Interventions Conference March 25-27, 2015 at Coast Edmonton Plaza!
With hoarding behaviour found in up to 5% of the population, CMHA-ER’s third annual Hoarding Interventions Conference aims to build the capacity of communities to assist those affected by hoarding disorder.
As the only conference of its kind in Canada, over 150 mental health practitioners, human service workers, first responders, property managers, and people affected by hoarding disorder will come together to increase their knowledge and understanding of hoarding behaviour.
Leading international expert, Dr. Christiana Bratiotis LICSW, will be joined by Dr. Sheila Woody, Dr. Jyothi Robertson, and others as we examine the Canadian context of hoarding interventions and learn about animal hoarding, peer responses to hoarding, and home-based coaching techniques for hoarding intervention. The conference will conclude with an interactive discussion with community members on issues and priorities surrounding an integrated response to hoarding in Edmonton.
