The collection and storing of excessive numbers of belongings significantly affects a resident’s ability to live in their home. It creates a fire risk in over 70% of cases and often appears to be an intractable management problem. A clear understanding of the principal characteristics of hoarding behaviour is necessary before developing a management strategy to address its consequences; and prevent repetition. This course transitions from understanding to identifying key elements for a management strategy. It provides a way forward through the legal process if a voluntary approach has not produced the necessary improvement. Managers; team leaders and frontline staff will benefit from the learning offered by this course.
