PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL BENEFITS
Financial Therapy is the first full-length guide to the field, bridging theory, practical methods, and a growing cross-disciplinary evidence base to create a framework for improving this crucial aspect of clients' lives. Its contributors identify money-based disorders such as compulsive buying, financial hoarding, and workaholism, and analyze typical early experiences and the resulting mental constructs ("money scripts") that drive toxic relationships with money. Clearly relating financial stability to larger therapeutic goals, therapists from varied perspectives offer practical tools for assessment and intervention, advice on cultural and ethical considerations, and provide instructive case studies. A diverse palette of research-based and practice-based models meets monetary mental health issues with well-known treatment approaches.
Facilitating Financial Health integrates the fields of psychotherapy, coaching, and financial planning, equipping financial professionals with techniques to enhance their effectiveness by working with both the exterior and interior aspects of a client's financial health. This guide presents a new model called Integrated Financial Planning to help clients achieve balanced and healthy financial lives. Integrated Financial Planning encourages you to think beyond the traditional boundaries of your practice and to serve clients far more effectively.
With the newly revised 2nd Edition, Facilitating Financial Health remains a one-of-a-kind publication that bridges the gap between financial planners and mental health practitioners.
