The purpose of Graduate and Undergraduate Study in Marriage and Family is to assist prospective students and their faculty advisers in identifying and comparing available bachelor's, master's, and doctoral programs.

This book, which contains concise data on over 250 family programs in the United States and Canada, is designed to meet the need for an updated guide.Graduate and Undergraduate Study describes family programs from many different disciplines such as family and consumer sciences, sociology, psychology, education, nursing, counseling, family studies, and marriage and family therapy. In the marriage and family therapy/counseling area, it includes all programs accredited by both the Commission on Accreditation of Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE) and the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). In the family studies area, it contains all programs certified by the National Council on Family Relations' Certified Family Life Educator (CFLE).Graduate and Undergraduate Study is not intended to replace the detailed information that can be obtained only from the programs themselves. Rather, the objective of this book is to introduce students and advisers to opportunities for graduate and undergraduate study and to serve as a starting point in selecting an appropriate school.

In addition, the involvement of chapter authors from a variety of fields including family psychology, family sociology, child development, family studies, public health, and family therapy, gives the Handbook a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary framework.

Money-related stress dates as far back as concepts of money itself. Formerly it may have waxed and waned in tune with the economy, but today more individuals are experiencing financial mental anguish and self-destructive behavior regardless of bull or bear markets, recessions or boom periods. From a fringe area of psychology, financial therapy has emerged to meet increasingly salient concerns. Financial Therapy is the first full-length guide to the field, bridging theory, practical methods, and a growing cross-disciplinary evidence base to create a framework for improving this crucial aspect of clients' lives. Its contributors identify money-based disorders such as compulsive buying, financial hoarding, and workaholism, and analyze typical early experiences and the resulting mental constructs ("money scripts") that drive toxic relationships with money. Clearly relating financial stability to larger therapeutic goals, therapists from varied perspectives offer practical tools for assessment and intervention, advise on cultural and ethical considerations, and provide instructive case studies. A diverse palette of research-based and practice-based models meets monetary mental health issues with well-known treatment approaches, among them: Cognitive-behavioral and solution-focused therapies. Collaborative relationship models. Experiential approaches. Psychodynamic financial therapy. Feminist and humanistic approaches. Stages of change and motivational interviewing in financial therapy. A text that serves to introduce and define the field as well as plan for its future, Financial Therapy is an important investment for professionals in psychotherapy and counseling, family therapy, financial planning, and social policy.
