Personal finance is necessary for life. Fortunately, or unfortunately, it’s here to stay, so we may use the science we know and love to increase our MO for financial literacy. In this CEU, we’ll cover the basics of personal finance – budgeting, saving, debt payoff, and investing – through the lens of Behavior Analysis. Research shows that increasing our financial literacy is directly related to financial behavior change, and who knows more about behavior change than behavior scientists? Dive in with us as we learn how to identify the functions of our unhealthy financial behaviors, choose helpful replacement behaviors, and discover interventions explicitly made to improve our economic health.
