The social prohibition against money has made money possibly the most neglected topic in psychological research and in psychotherapists' education, training and practice.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 12, 2011
Financialpsychologyceus.com, a continuing education website for mental health professionals, announced today the addition of a new online course, Money, Mental Health and Financial Psychology, an introduction to financial psychology and an exploration into the impact money has on an individual’s mental health.
The Financialpsychologyceus.com course examines the interconnection between money and mental health and the underlying psychology linking the two. Money, Mental Health and Financial Psychology covers the characteristics of disordered money struggles; common types of problematic money-related behaviors; psychological components impacting an individual’s relationship with money; and possible psychotherapy treatment strategies for working with money-related struggles.
“Discussing money is historically taboo, even for psychotherapists,” said Joe Lowrance, Psy.D, author of the course. “Unfortunately, this social prohibition has caused money to become possibly the most neglected topic in psychological research and in psychotherapists’ education, training and practice. Consequently, the ability for psychotherapists to serve their clients’ well-being regarding one of daily life’s most important issues of daily life often has been compromised.”
An Atlanta clinical psychologist, Dr. Lowrance is part of a growing movement of mental health professionals who recognize the significance of raising the subject of money with their clients. He is also a member of the Georgia Consortium for Personal Financial Literacy, on the editorial board of the Journal of Financial Therapy, associate producer of the documentary film Money and Life, developer of moneyandmylife.com, and founder and CEO of FinancialPsychologyCeus.com.
