The current workshop introduces Family-As-Motivators (FAM) Training, which was designed exclusively for empowering family members with the goal of increasing treatment-seeking behavior and readiness among individuals with compulsive hoarding (CH), as well as increasing the wellbeing of family members. FAM Training is a 10-session, manualized training program that consists of four modules: Psychoeducation, Motivational Interviewing, Harm Reduction, and Family Accommodation Prevention. In addition to providing an overview of FAM Training, the current workshop will also carve out time for demonstrating some techniques via role play. This will be carried out with the very trainers who deliver the program as part of a current randomized waitlist controlled trial of FAM Training. Time will also be reserved for answering audience questions pertaining to FAM Training and, more generally, family support and intervention CH.
