Self-Help Group for the Treatment of Hoarding Disorder

This self-help group is led by a bachelor’s level clinician in the Program for Anxiety, Stress, & OCD at the University of Miami. The group involves teaching strategies to help with sorting, discarding, and reducing acquiring behaviors. We hope that this group will lead to a decrease in hoarding symptoms and improved quality of life.

Participating involves 13 meetings held weekly in the evenings. We also ask that you complete three assessments consisting of interviews and questionnaires throughout the class. One month after the program ends you will also be asked to complete a check-in assessment over the phone.

There is a participation fee of $80 which covers the cost of materials and books for the group.

We are assembling a waitlist for a group beginning Summer 2021. If this sounds like something you are interested in or would like more information, please contact us at (305)-284-5394 or PASO@psy.miami.edu.


20-Week Class for the Treatment of Hoarding Disorder

This class is led by doctoral student clinicians from the Program for Anxiety, Stress, & OCD at the University of Miami. While not required, individuals typically first complete our Self-Help Group for the Treatment of Hoarding Disorder and then continue on to this class if they would like additional opportunities to learn about managing symptoms and to hone their skills. The 20-week class involves learning cognitive strategies to help with planning and decision-making, as well as in-session sorting and discarding practice. The class also includes opportunities for home visit sessions with clinicians to apply the skills learned in class.

Participants attend a total of 20 group sessions held weekly in the evenings. Before, during, and upon completion of the course, we also ask that participants complete assessments consisting of an interview and some questionnaires. These help us monitor individual progress and evaluate treatment outcomes. After the program ends you will also be asked to complete one or more follow-up assessments online or over the phone.

There is a participation fee which covers the cost of materials and books for the class.
