Until recently, hoarding behavior was conceptualized as a subtype of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Research on the psychopathology of hoarding, however, demonstrated important distinctions from OCD, leading to the inclusion of hoarding disorder as a separate obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorder in DSM-5. Despite the evident focal behavior of excessive collection of personal possessions, hoarding is a complicated and difficult disorder to treat and is further complicated by high comorbidity of mental and physical health problems and low insight. Few clinicians have specialty training to work with hoarding. The goal of this institute is to build on clinicians' foundational CBT skills with specialized strategies for addressing problems related to hoarding. Drawing from the presenters' extensive experience in individual, group, and community-based interventions for hoarding, this presentation will outline clinical strategies and use case examples to provide a problem-based learning environment for attendees. The focus will be on aspects of CBT that are relatively specific to hoarding, including a modified use of exposure and response prevention.
