Information about this webinar:

  • Learning how to help couples soothe and reassure each other is valuable when they are dealing with money issues as well as relationship issues. Both researchers and clients agree: emotionally focused approaches to couples therapy work well. Emotionally-focused approaches can be described as dealing with a couple’s process in how they connect to one another. In this approach, emphasis is placed on helping couples talk to each other about feelings based on underlying attachment processes and needs. Since both attachment and money can trigger survival fears, the process is full of emotion. Attend this webinar to learn more about how this approach can be useful in Financial Therapy.
