Through this one-day workshop, participants will have the opportunity to obtain 6 continuing education credits. During the seminar, the following learning objectives will be accomplished:

  1. Explain the new DSM-5 diagnostic criteria for Hoarding Disorder, including the latest research and treatment.

  2. Discuss events throughout history such as war, the Great Depression, and natural disasters that effect multiple generations regarding attachment.

  3. Examine the etiology and progressive nature of this disorder, including the role that trauma, loss, and aging play in its development.

  4. Demonstrate treatment through film clips of Dr. Beaton and other experts treating clients on the television series “Hoarding: Buried Alive.”

  5. Participants will also explore their own attachment patterns regarding belongings.

While serving as one of TLC’s featured psychologists, Dr. Beaton is also the Director of the Anxiety and Stress Management Institute in Atlanta, GA. Her one-day clinic will help Southeastern clinicians better recognize and treat hoarding behaviors in their clients.

Richmont Graduate University is pleased to partner with CAPA by providing the venue for this seminar and hopes to continue collaborating in the future.
