In this course, we will explore the symbolic function of money within the clinical setting. Relational enactments around financial matters are one way our clients communicate their unconscious experience. By listening to what occurs in the field between the client and therapist, clinicians can move beyond fear when it comes to discussing issues, such as raising fees or enforcing the cancellation policy, and instead begin to utilize the conversation around money as a clinical tool that can expand our insight into our client’s internal world.
By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Identify the practical applications of discussing financial matters and setting fees in a clinical setting.
- Describe 3 ways unaddressed money anxieties may arise in the transference and/or countertransference.
- List 3 ways race, class and gender may influence the therapist’s and the client’s expectations around money in the clinical setting.
