    The workshop will start with a history of how and when financial therapy was born. The basics tools and concepts of financial will be explored. We’ll take a deeper dive into money beliefs and how they affect behaviors. Case studies will be presented illustrating how financial dysfunction shows up in people’s lives and how financial therapy approaches these issues. A brief discussion of how attachment theory, EFT, and IFS are applied to financial therapy. And we’ll wrap up the discussion with an overview of where Financial Therapy is today and current plans for further development of the field.
