The North Shore Center for Hoarding and Cluttering is bringing together several world-renowned experts to discuss the most current trends in treatment and intervention for hoarding disorder. Joining these experts will be numerous community partners sharing successful and highly innovative programs they have developed and implemented in their communities. Additionally, individuals with lived experience will share their stories in open panel discussions with the goal of helping correct mis-information and reducing stigmas surrounding hoarding disorder. Participants, no matter what their role, will have the opportunity to gain insight into living with hoarding disorder and to learn about treatment, interventions, and programs that will help them better understand and address hoarding in their community.
