The FTA aims to address the issue of the limited access to rigorous professional development and education resources available in the emerging field of financial therapy. Our Education Video Series delivers critical foundational knowledge to all professionals, and additionally, helps prepare CFT-ITM candidates for the certification exam.
The Journal of Financial Therapy primarily publishes clinical, experimental, and survey research that examines the empirical link between personal financial knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors and personal and family well-being. JFT also accepts cross-sectional survey research, longitudinal and panel study research, case studies, financial therapy practice management tutorials, and literature reviews. Articles from financial therapists, both those working in academia and in practice, are welcomed.
All manuscripts received are blind peer reviewed. Because of the clinical focus of the journal, authors are encouraged to address the conceptual methodology underlying the research and to describe the intervention methods employed. Although detailed reviews of literature are accepted, reviewers tend to appreciate manuscripts with a very strong introduction describing the purpose of the study, a well described conceptual framework, concise presentation of findings, and a thorough discussion of results that are applicable to practicing financial therapists, financial counselors, psychologists, marriage and family therapists, and others who regularly work in clinical settings.
The Journal of Financial Therapy provides a forum for those who are interested in financial therapy and financial counseling with a forum for sharing models, theory, ideas, strategies, and therapy approaches.
A primary purpose of the Journal of Financial Therapy is to provide a forum to study the cognitive, emotional, behavioral, relational, economic, and integrative aspects of financial health. The journal bridges the empirical and clinical work typically conducted by financial planning and marriage and family therapy researchers into an integrative disciplinary forum for sharing models, theories, ideas, strategies, and counseling approaches. The following questions and answers are provided to help address some of the issues faced by new authors.
The Journal of Financial Therapy utilizes an editor and associate editor process for evaluating manuscripts. That is, the editor works with content specific associate editors, who, in turn, choose appropriate reviewers for manuscripts. As such, the editor’s role is to facilitate a dialog between and among reviewers and authors and to monitor the timeliness of the review process. The editor and associate editors are also available to counsel authors on the process of manuscript submission, review, and publication.
