Money Behavior: How People Make Financial Decisions
By Molly C. Herndon, Military Families Learning Network
Making financial decisions is impacted by many external factors. Peer influence, psychological perspective, an overwhelming amount of choices, and your personal experiences managing money in the past all play roles in how you approach financial situations.
How and why people make financial decisions will be the topic of a three-day Virtual Learning Event, “Money Behavior: How People Make Financial Decisions,” hosted by eXtension’s Military Families Learning Network onJune 3 – 5. Over the course of the multi-day event, participants can engage in three 2-hour webinars and one 90-minute panel discussion. Each session will focus on factors that impact our financial decision-making process.
Tuesday, June 3rd, Dr. Lois Vitt will present Mental Health & Financial Management at 11 a.m. ET. This 2-hour session will focus on the effect mental illness has on a person’s ability to make sound financial decisions.
Wednesday, June 4th, Dr. Michael Gutter will present Heuristics, Anchoring & Narrowing Choice at 11 a.m. ET. This 2-hour session will focus on the process of eliminating an overwhelming amount of choices to make financial decisions more negotiable.
Each 2-hour webinar will include a 30-minute question and answer period, and will offer two Continuing Education Credits to AFC-credentialed participants. The 90-minute panel discussion will be worth 1.5 CEUs.
Understanding the process of making financial decisions better completes the picture of helping clients make behavior change. We hope many Personal Finance Managers and educators will engage in this 3-day event, and will not only learn from our presenters, but also share their own expertise and experience.
