This first session of the group begins with a welcome and introduction of members. This is followed by a discussion of the format for group sessions (check-in, topics and exercises, home commitment) and development of group rules. Leaders review the definition and diagnosis of hoarding disorder, and members complete a brief assessment as a group. Leaders discuss the role of home commitments that will be planned between every session, and a homework assignment is given for this session that includes a reading and in-home placement of materials for the group treatment.
