Title: Mindfulness Methods for Taming Mischievous Money Habits
Thursday, November 16th, 2017
Are you a frustrated witness to any of the stubborn and "mischievous" habits wreaking havoc in your clients' money lives? Common problematic behaviors can be tricky to communicate to clients without it causing defensive reactions. By framing them as light-hearted, "mischievous traits" to tame while integrating them with mindfulness methods, clients find it easier to embrace their part of the problem. This assists them greatly in changing longstanding habits that tend to be repeated unless effective intervention is achieved. Creative acronyms and other methods that make steps more memorable for both counselor and client will be shared in the process.
