“Money and Counseling: Tools for EAP’s and therapists working with clients in connection with issues around personal finances.”

August 22, 2014

Please join us for an informative and important presentation on money and counseling.  The presentation is designed to raise the consciousness of EAP’s and therapists to the sometimes subtle but powerful influence of money and what it can and cannot buy on the psyches of clients. This will be accomplished first by inviting participants to plumb their own depths for those influences and then augment that sensitivity with a framework for treatment and tools to reach treatment goals.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to - 
1. Identify and explain three ways individuals and couples structure and account for income and expenses. 
2. Target major stressors encountered around personal and family finances and how to address them. 
3. Address client financial issues while practicing within their training and scope of practice. 
4. Provide resources to clients that will augment the counseling. 

Roger Schwarz, MFT, JD spent the first twenty-five years of his professional life practicing law, accounting as well as personal financial and estate planning. During that time he made presentations on related topics to clients and colleagues alike. In 1990 he returned to school to train and become licensed as an MFT to be able to counsel people on the powerful psychological underpinnings for their struggles around money and personal finances. Since entering a solo private practice in 2008, Mr. Schwarz developed specialties working with couples and with clients where finances are a controversial stressor.
