Title: Understanding and Working with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Financial Well-Being Scale
Thursday, November 16th, 2017
The theme of the 2017 AFCPE Research and Training Symposium is Bridging the Gap: Building a Community of Financial Wellbeing. In order to truly embrace the theme, participants would ideally have an understanding and agreement of what financial well-being is. In order to help facilitate that discussion in this session we will introduce the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Financial Well-Being scale, discuss the history and practical use of the scale, explore limitations, and walk participants through how the scale can be used in their practice.
