    MARIN CAMFT FRIDAY CONTINUING EDUCATION SERIES

    Friday, May 10, 2019, Bringing Hoarding Out of the ClosetSue Zee Poinsett, MA


    Sue Zee will talk about her understanding of Hoarding Disorder (HD) as well as the impact on those with hoarding behavior, their loved ones and the risks of the disease.  She will touch on the clinical aspects of Hoarding Disorder as well as the vulnerability factors of HD.  She will also talk about what she believes is the impact of the creation of the classification of Hoarding Disorder in the DSM-V as a distinct disorder with distinct treatments and the role of therapist in the remediation of this terrible disease .  She hopes this will be an interactive session that will provide a better understanding of and compassion for those whose lives are impacted by Hoarding Disorder. 


    At the conclusion of this presentation the attendees will:

    1. have an awareness of the vulnerability factors affecting those with Hoarding Disorder
    2. have increased knowledge of what intake questions to ask clients/patients
    3. have an understanding of the causes and effective treatments for HD
    4. have tools for working with those who hoard and families and friends who love those who hoard

    Description-there is a continuum

    • Accumulating and failing to discard seemingly useless possessions, causing extremely cluttered living areas and significant distress or functional problems caused by hoarding
    • Squalor not part of definition-there can be Hoarding with or without squalor
    • It is a mental health condition and not a moral issue
    Those who hoard experience
    • “Fear of waste, the allure of opportunity and the comfort and safety provided by objects”
    • “The passion of the collector, the procrastination of someone who hasn't taken time to put things away and the sentimentality of one who saves reminders of important events”
    • The thoughts & feelings are common; the order of magnitude is what is exceptional
    • Exaggeration of normal set of behaviors

    Vulnerabilities

    • Early Experience
    • Beliefs
    • Personality Traits – perfectionism, dependency, anxiety, sensitivity, paranoia, neuroticism, indecisiveness impulsiveness, depression, self consciousness
    • Comorbidity

    Demographics

    • 2-6% of population (10-25% in elder communities)-one of the most common mental health problems worldwide (Marin Co 251,000-12,550 w/HD) – 3 times more common in adults 55-94 than ages 34-44
    • 92% of those with hoarding have 1 or more mental health issue
    • Age of onset 6-15 years old
    • Education ranges widely
    • Functional impairment and clutter get worse with age
    • Not caused but can be made worse by a traumatic event (not PTSD)
    • Crosses all races, ethnicities and socio-economic strata
    • Uncertain about male/female distribution-more women seek help

    Risks

    • Health-falls, respiratory problems
    • Quality of life-depression, loneliness, family issues
    • Financial issues-spending money meant for other things
    • Inability to use parts of home, lack of repairs, heat, water
    • Fires-death in fires more common in hoarded situations
    • Burden on public services and fire and law enforcement
    • Loss of housing

    Background

    • Research began in mid 1990’s
    • Conducted by researchers who noticed hoarding in people with OCD
    • With the publication of Diagnostic & Statistical Manual V Hoarding Disorder was reclassified as a distinct disorder under the category “Obsessive Compulsive & Related Disorders”-less than 20% of those with OCD also have Hoarding Disorder
    • Has increased public awareness, improved identification of cases, and stimulated research and the development of specific treatments for hoarding disorder

    Editorial Comment:  This is freeing the research and understanding to go beyond OCD and I think it is moving closer to AD/HD than OCD


    Nature of Person

    • Getting and having stuff good, getting rid of stuff bad
    • Typically does not see it as big of a problem as others see it

    Causes – open question

    • Very little evidence that history of material deprivation is a cause
    • Disorder of cognition and behavior
    • Lack of insight important aspect
    • Have identified some brain abnormalities-limbic system & frontal lobe-person w/hoarding may actually see hoard differently
    • There is a genetic component (55% have parents/sibs w/HD)
    • Difficulties with Executive Function
      • Planning
      • Prioritizing
      • decision making
      • initiating
      • completion
      • attention
      • over-categorization
      • hyper focus

    Meaning of Possessions

    • Emotional – attachment & identity
    • Instrumental – Responsibility & guilt
    • Intrinsic – beauty and aesthetics

    Challenges

    • Beliefs – often erroneous, not helpful or exaggerated
      • About usefulness-every item is an opportunity
      • About need to be perfect & not make mistakes
      • About responsibility – waste, lost opportunity, inanimate object given feelings (anthropomorphism)
      • About possessions – utility, beauty, sentimental value
      • About vulnerability – safety/comfort, loss, family history
      • About memory – doubt memory, so out of sight out of mind
      • About  identity-defining self by what you have not what you do
      • About connection-my things connect me to others and the world
      • About solutions-others’ and theirs
      • About control-independence and autonomy
    • Feelings
      • Resentment
      • Distrust
      • Fear
      • Hopelessness
      • Depression
      • Anxiety
    Nature of Problem
    • Hidden-happens in private as long as person keeps people away
    • Embarrassment and shame may be present
    • Change is long term and expensive
    • Lack of trained professionals
    • Lack of understanding and research
    • Feeling of hopelessness
    Treatment (work on non-acquiring and sorting)
    • Talk therapy not particularly helpful
    • Necessary to use positive engagement techniques
      • Empathy
    • Cognitive behavioral therapy-therapy to help person change beliefs (70-80% of those undergoing CBT were much or very much improved after 9-12 mos. of treatment
    • Motivational interviewing to work with ambivalence
    • Medications-some may be effective for depression, anxiety, ADD symptoms
    • Skills education (categorizing, organizing, problem solving, prioritizing) and development (practicing sorting, decision making, etc.)
    • Support groups
    • Peer support
    • Professional organizers/coaches
    Harm Reduction
    • Safety is first concern-not removal of items
    • Gather stakeholders and agree on changes that are necessary for safety
    • Process of written agreement, check-ins and understanding if mistakes are made
    Future
    • Hopeful
    • Hoarding Intervention Project

    MARIN CAMFT FRIDAY CONTINUING EDUCATION SERIES

    Friday, June 14, 2019 An Introduction to Brainspotting, Richard Platt, LMFT


    What is Brainspotting? Brainspotting locates points in the client’s visual field that help to access unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain. Brainspotting (BSP) was discovered in 2003 by David Grand, Ph.D.  Dr. Grand discovered that "Where you look affects how you feel." It is the brain activity, especially in the subcortical brain that organizes itself around that eye position.


    Brainspotting is a powerful, focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation and a variety of other challenging symptoms. Brainspotting is a simultaneous form of diagnosis and treatment, which is deep, direct, and powerful yet focused and containing.


    Brainspotting functions as a neurobiological tool to support the clinical healing relationship. There is no replacement for a mature, nurturing therapeutic presence and the ability to engage another suffering human in a safe and trusting relationship where they feel heard, accepted, and understood.


    Brainspotting gives us a tool, within this clinical relationship, to neurobiologically locate, focus, process, and release experiences and symptoms that are typically out of reach of the conscious mind and its cognitive and language capacity.


    Brainspotting works with the deep brain and the body through its direct access to the autonomic and limbic systems within the body’s central nervous system. Brainspotting is accordingly a physiological tool/treatment which has profound psychological, emotional, and physical consequences.


    Over 13,000 therapists have been trained in BSP in the United States, South America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and Africa.
