This learning module provides an introduction to hoarding disorder for people who need to know the basics.

You will explore:

  • the diagnostic definition of hoarding disorder;
  • who, what and why people hoard, and
  • the clutter continuum.

The goal of this learning activity is to look at the psychology and epidemiology of hoarding, and to examine associated behaviours and characteristics.

Study the content thoroughly. Read the entire course and then answer the questions at the end. If you are unable to complete the test in one session, you may pause it and resume later.

Study time is approximately 40 minutes.
