Calgary event to explore hoarding

April 6, 2018 by  

Social workers, psychologists and others who work in the social services and mental health fields who would like to expand their knowledge and skills set when it comes to working with those coming with hoarding disorders will soon have a chance to do just that.

The upcoming ‘Too Much Stuff” symposium will shine a light on this complex disorder and look at it from a variety of perspectives. It will address some of its root causes and explore the impact in can have on a person’s life, as well as that of their family and friends.

The organizers of the event noted that it is intended for professionals who work at an intermediate to advanced level in their field, and will provide them with both skills and knowledge that will help them to better understand hoarding. It will address the issue from a multidisciplinary approach, and is scheduled to run for one day.

The registration fee for anyone who would like to participate in the training is $125.00 each, and this includes snacks, lunch, parking and all materials needed. A printing services provider will be able to supply manuals, handouts and other items for this type of event.

The symposium has been planned for May 3, and it will be taking place in The Calgary Dream Centre. More Information about the occasions can be found on its event listing.
