Home-Work: When Your Client Experiences Conflict in a Family Business

Planners and therapists often serve clients who co-own a business with their spouse or family members. The boundary between business finances and personal finances, as well as business and personal relationship dynamics, can become too permeable in family businesses.

Therapists and financial planners using financial therapy are perfectly positioned to support the financial and relational dynamics that overlap in relationships of members of a family firm. We will discuss money scripts as a tool to help clients and their family firm partners uncover the underlying money management beliefs each partner holds. We will present interventions practitioners can use to help clients communicate. These will aid financial therapy practitioners in their work with family firm clients by helping these clients and their partners better understand each other to negotiate a common plan for their business and family finances.

Presenters:  Josh Harris, Rick Kahler, Megan McCoy, Stefanie Pickard, Rob Stephens
