This workshop will provide a framework for practitioners to examine the role of social workers in advancing the economic stability of individuals, families and communities. Participants will gain a foundation in the language, theories, practice techniques, tools, and resources available to help clients build financial stability in the context of today’s economic inequality and social policy landscape.
Through a series of exercises and discussions, practitioners will learn how values, habits,
and beliefs about money affect financial behaviors and impact client well-being. Participants
will learn how to apply social work skills in order to identify and discuss financial issues
with clients. Completing this workshop is strongly encouraged before registering for other
more specialized courses in financial social work.
