NAMI NJ and NAMI Sussex in collaboration with the Mental Health Association in NJ Present: “Too Much Stuff” with Laverne Williams
People who have a tendency to hoard can accumulate so much “stuff” it overwhelms their lives, and family members and friends often do more harm than good in their attempts to help.

Laverne Williams, CSW, will discuss common beliefs around hoarding disorder, best practices to support someone with the disorder, and the financial and emotional costs to persons with the tendency to hoard and to their families and the community. She will provide evidence-based tools to assess the risk for hoarding disorder, as well as a case study practice for gaining entry into a home with too much stuff. She will also stress the need for a paradigm switch of language about hoarding disorder.

Oct 7, 2020 11:00 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
