Social Workers, LCPCs, Psychologists



What’s the number one cause of conflict in relationships? The most common measure of success? The one thing many people think will solve their problems? The most taboo topic in our society? If you answered “money,” you’re right! Since our relationship with money can affect every aspect of our secular and emotional lives, it can provide important insights when explored. This is an interactive half day of activities that can immediately be used with clients to make bringing money into the conversation easy, effective, and comfortable for both client and therapist. This price includes online access to the Brining Money into the Conversation: A quick Start for Therapists workbook.

In order to coordinate access to the workbooks, registration will close on Monday, February 15th. 

Once workbook assess is given, full refunds will not be permitted.
