The Georgia Board of Professional Counselors, Social Workers and Marriage & Family Therapists:

The Georgia Composite Board has approved all Live Webinars to be counted the same as Live (including Ethics!!!) from here forward. Therefore, masters level licensed therapists will not have to attend a live workshop ever again.

The Georgia Board of Psychologists:

Has approved Live Webinars and On-Demand Webinars to be counted the same as live workshops for the remainder of this renewal period (including Ethics!!!). We are still awaiting The Board’s decision regarding the next renewal cycle.

Educational Objectives:

  • Explain the new DSM-5 diagnostic criteria for Hoarding Disorder, including the latest research and treatments.
  • Discuss events throughout history such as war, the Great Depression, and natural disasters that effect multiple generations regarding attachment.
  • Examine the etiology and progressive nature of this disorder, including the role that trauma, loss, and aging play in its development.
  • Demonstrate treatment through film clips of Dr. Beaton and other experts treating clients on the television series "Hoarding: Buried Alive".
  • Explore participants' own attachment patterns regarding belongings.

Presented by: Becky Beaton-York, Ph.D.

Dr. Beaton-York has been featured on over 60 episodes as the treating psychologist on TLC’s hit series “Hoarding: Buried Alive.” Her experience in working with Hoarding Disorders has also given Dr. Beaton-York the opportunity to appear on CNN Headline News, Good Morning America and Anderson Live (twice). During her most recent appearance on Anderson Live, Anderson Cooper introduced her as "one of the leading experts in Hoarding Disorder." In 2005, Dr. Beaton-York was voted Counselor Educator of the Year and in 2015 she received the Lifetime Achievement Award both by the Licensed Professional Counselor's Association of Georgia. She has taught hundreds of workshops both nationally and internationally, and she has also taught as an adjunct professor for both Georgia State and Emory Universities. Dr. Beaton-York is known for her unusual combination of being extremely knowledgeable & scientific yet down-to-earth & easy to understand, while also being playful and humorous. Not only will you learn a ton, you'll have fun doing so.
