OCD & Hoarding

Course Outline

This course looks at the definitions and diagnoses of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and the differences between Obsession and Compulsion, statistics, and the effect this can have on an individual, family and carers. This would lead on to variations of OCD and the approaches/treatments available as well as the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines for staff.

Delegates would be introduced to the incidence of hoarding and the impact upon the individual, family and carers. Strategies will be employed so that delegates ensure the rights of the individual are maintained e.g. Duty of Care versus Philosophy of Care. The course would be paced at the level of attendees, allowing ample opportunity for questions. Continuous assessment will ensure participation of all and that expectations are being met.

Target Audience

This course is suitable for all workers in adult social care and health sectors.
