Too Many Treasures: An Overview of Hoarding

Lora Wise, Dartmouth Centers for Health and Aging
Many people feel they have too many things cluttering up their lives. At what point does this become a problem that needs to be resolved? Hoarding disorder occurs when possessions begin to impact an individual’s quality of life. This workshop will not cover ‘decluttering’ or ‘downsizing’ but will address the different types of hoarding, root causes of the condition, and ineffective and effective strategies for addressing hoarding behavior. Kate Tibbs (Program Specialist for the Southwestern Vermont Hoarding Task Force) will also be present to answer questions about the Hoarding Task Force in Vermont.
