This new guide presents a new model for helping clients achieve balanced and healthy financial lives- called integrated financial planning.

Facilitating Financial Health integrates the fields of psychotherapy, coaching, and financial planning, equipping financial professionals with techniques to enhance their effectiveness by working with both the exterior and interior aspects of a client s financial health. Integrated financial planning encourages you to think beyond the traditional boundaries of your practice and to serve clients far more effectively.
Includes a "Decision Tree" with guidelines for deciding when it is appropriate for planners to work with client's interior issues themselves and when it is appropriate to refer clients to or partner with coaches or therapists.
