Women, Money, and Power :
From a Psychological Perspective
As you all know, money is a loaded topic for most people- and it is usually more difficult for people to talk about than sex! In this afternoon's discussion, that's just what we are going to be doing - not talking about the allocations or the strategies, but rather, the psychological relationships that we all have with money. We are going to talk about why it's so important to come to terms with, and take responsibility for, not just our finances but also our psychological relationship to our finances and money. Our own histories and feelings about money have a huge impact on how we think about using it and sharing it. Making those feelings conscious can be of enormous value. So, even though professionally, you deal with money and people's issues around it all day, this is going to be a discussion to help you think a bit about your own relationships with money- to try and make the underlying thoughts and feelings a bit less syntonic and more dystonic! And, my hope is, that this will also be a way of thinking that can benefit your clients!
