Event description


The Beatles sang that “Money can’t buy me love.” Nevertheless, money plays a huge role in our lives, and it is ever present in the decisions we make, the ways that we feel about ourselves, what we teach our children, and the conflicts that we have in our primary and extended relationships.

Money, wealth, poverty and similar topics may be big themes in therapeutic and coaching settings – or they may feel quite scary for both the client and helper to address. Yet money invariably contributes (or not) to our sense of safety and security, and we need to find ways to enter the silence and explore the topics that impact us so deeply.

Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, will present "Abundance, Deprivation and Somewhere in Between: The Deep Psychology of Money" for the

In this training, you will learn:
