Overview
People with hoarding challenges excessively save items that others may view as worthless. They have persistent difficulty getting rid of or parting with possessions, leading to clutter that disrupts their ability to use their living or workspaces. Hoarding disorder can cause problems in relationships, social and work activities, and other important areas of functioning. Potential consequences of serious hoarding include health and safety concerns, such as fire hazards, tripping hazards, and health code violations. It can also lead to family strain and conflicts, isolation and loneliness, unwillingness to have anyone else enter the home, and an inability to perform daily tasks such as cooking and bathing in the home. Hoarding condition is on a continuum and may vary from one individual to the other and may get progressively worse if there is no intervention.

    Managing Anxiety

    Date: 12/15/2022 - 10:00 am to 11:00 am
    Location: Zoom Webinar

    Overview:
    Do you ever feel like no one understands your struggle with anxiety? Anxiety is one of the most common struggles people are experiencing today. Since anxiety is an emotion similar to fear, it occurs in response to a perceived threat or danger. There is a difference between worrying and coping with anxiety that interferes with daily life skills functionality. Finding encouragement for working through anxiety can be difficult. Often, others only offer quick fixes for stress relief without really hearing you, which can leave you feeling like you’re the problem or worse—“it’s all in your head.” Anxiety is an oppressive emotion to experience and navigate. Over time, this misunderstood emotion may become a chronic cycle of despair that seems endless.

    Objectives: In this community-based training webinar together, we will:

    • Define the term "anxiety" and learn the differences between normal worry and true anxiety  Discuss how anxiety affects one's overall well-being and the long-term results if not addressed
