A unique guide to help therapists, coaches, and other professionals createconversations with their clients about money

The first book of its kind to introduce a model for helping mental health professionals and coaches create conversations about money with their clients, Money and Meaning provides a framework and tools to create a safe environment in which to have conversations and resolve conflicts.

Written by a respected expert in business, financial, and relational issues, this groundbreaking book is built upon the linkage between money and values through the use of the author's innovative "card sort technique" consisting of two sets of cards (provided in the Appendices of this book and online at www.wiley.com/go/moneyandmeaning)—with one deck representing content values and the other deck representing process values. These practical tools allow clients to sort both sets of cards into an order reflective of his or her value priorities, facilitating what can otherwise be a difficult conversation.

Filled with useful case studies, Money and Meaning helps professionals open the door to thoughtful conversations that explore and resolve money's multiple meanings.
