Understanding Financial Behavioral Health: Considerations for Clinicians

January 31 @ 1:00 pm - 4:15 pm

$70 – $90

Live Interactive Webinar

Instructor: Jeffrey Anvari-Clark, Ph.D., MA, LMSW

Level: Intermediate

CEs: 3 CEs are available for $10 fee.

Financial concerns can have a profound impact on behavioral health, yet the financial domain is rarely addressed in clinical practice. Within social work, teaching financial content is now prescribed by CSWE, and financial issues are highlighted as part of the Grand Challenges for Social Work. According to the American Psychological Association, issues with personal finances and costs of living are the top stressors Americans face (2022). Research also suggests that financial well-being contributes as much to overall well-being as do job satisfaction, relationship support satisfaction and health status combined (Netemeyer et al., 2018).

In this course, attendees will be able to define financial behavioral health, learn the importance of integrating financial considerations into clinical practice and explore the association between financial and other behavioral health domains (as pertaining to stress, anxiety, depressive disorders and associated substance or medication-induced symptoms). They will learn about the range of situations in which financial assessments may be used. Attendees will then practice ways to engage, assess and intervene in cases impacted by financial concerns. The session will conclude by highlighting emerging issues attendees should be aware of. A practitioner’s toolbox of resources, referral options, assessment measures and other materials will be provided.
