The Your Living Room team of trainers brings a wealth of experience, knowledge and passion to their training. Delivering a variety of courses to include a full day or a half day Hoarding Awareness Course for professional’s, Emotional Resilience & Stress Management for Hoarding Practitioners and a new course for 2020 ‘License to Practise’ – a 2 day workshop providing an intense overview for people interested in setting up their own Person-Centred Decluttering Service.

Our specialist Hoarding Awareness Training Courses aim to support front line staff and practitioners with the knowledge, confidence and understanding that enables them to engage with their clients who are displaying complex needs with a cluttered lifestyle.

Your Living Room delivers an overall information training package that provides professionals with the confidence in assessing clients’ needs accurately, using The Hoarding Guidance Protocol which was published in 2016. This is achieved by using examples of the evidence-based process of recording.

There is currently a lack of awareness and understanding with regard to the support required to enable professionals to engage with the community that are displaying a hoarding disorder.

Our engaging, jargon-free courses are the ideal way of raising awareness, building knowledge and skills of how to support your clients and are ideal for housing specialists and Health and Social Care teams who are supporting people affected by hoarding and other conditions resulting in chronic disorganisation.
