Session III: When Stuff Mounts: The Nature and Evidence-Based Treatment of Hoarding

Hoarding Disorder (HD) is a serious psychiatric disorder affecting about 4% of the adult population and costing $2 billion per year in the US alone. HD is characterized by excessively saving possessions, considerable difficulty discarding items, and impairing clutter. It interferes with basic activities (cooking, sleeping) and increases risk of multiple illnesses (poor sanitation, rodent and insect infestations) and injury/death (fires, falls, structural collapse). HD puts multiple parties in jeopardy (family, neighbors, first responders). Evidence for pharmacotherapy and non-specialized cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to treat HD has been mixed, necessitating the creation of a specialized protocol called CBT for HD (CBT-HD). A meta-analysis of 12 clinical trials of CBT-HD (N=232) indicated large within-group effects sizes for reducing overall HD severity (Hedge’s g=.82) and improving the ability to discard items (g=.89). Medium effects were found for reducing acquisition of items (g=.72) and clutter (g=.70). The current presentation defines the nature of hoarding, characterizes its associated features, and provides details about CBT for HD. Information from the presentation will prepare practitioners for recognizing hoarding and its features, as well as for identifying what evidence-based CBT techniques are indicated for the condition. 

Session IV: CANCELED. Will be rescheduled for Fall.
