FINANCIAL PLANNERS ARE accustomed to communicating with clients virtually and in multiple formats (phone, video conference, email) given increased client mobility and preferences (Sheils, Tucker, Fox, and Dunkerley 2013). However, the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly accelerated the virtual meeting modality to the extent that it is now a necessity.
The unique environmental circumstances and increased stress caused by COVID-19 have impacted clients and financial planners (Bareket-Bojmel, Shahar, and Margalit 2020; Osterland 2020). Client communication and relationship development in a virtual setting presents unique challenges. For example, a virtual setting can affect how a family communicates and can potentially exacerbate or alter power imbalances amongst family members (Arellano 2020; Grady et al. 2011). Money conversations in any format are challenging as they have the potential for an array of emotions, psychological responses, and relational processes such as stress, anxiety, and conflict (Engelberg and Sjoberg 2006). With these considerations in mind, the need for effective client communication in a virtual format should be at the forefront of financial planning research and practice.

Too often, clients become stuck and/or overwhelmed in their journey toward financial well-being. Solution-focused therapy is an approach that can help clients change the way they think about a problem by altering how they talk about a problem and utilizing their strengths to identify solutions that work best for them. Borrowed from the mental health discipline, solution-focused financial therapy is one of the few evidence-based modalities within financial therapy that has shown to help clients reduce financial anxiety and depressive symptoms, improve financial well-being, financial behaviors, and overall client functioning, and move toward their financial goals. This webinar will review foundational assumptions and principles of solution-focused financial therapy and highlight key interventions to incorporate into practice. This webinar is geared toward financial therapists, financial planners, financial counselors, and mental health therapists who want to help their clients tap into a new way of thinking about their situation and themselves.
