Against Financial Abuse – Confidence to Cure!

May 13 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Sadly, financial abuse is becoming increasingly more visible on a global scale. It can occur irrespective of socio-economic category, level of education, race, sex or ethnicity.
Every day there are people suffering from financial abuse, often with very little knowledge of where to go for much-needed support. As advising professionals you are perfectly placed to spot and potentially eradicate these threats by simply being more aware of the signs and the support that you can provide.

As the creator of the Financial Abuse Specialist™ – Certified programme, Michelle is delighted to share with you the essential top 10 insights on how to spot the signs, and then support your clients and those you know who may have fallen victim to economic abuse/coercive control.

During the presentation, the audience will receive:

  • An insight into the world of financial abuse and the terms most commonly used to describe it
  • The reasons why this form of abuse is on the rise and the horrific impacts it leaves behind
  • The signs that may be present and how you can spot them
  • The ‘what’s’ and the ‘how’s’ – what you can say and do!
  • The resources available for you and for victims
  • The Financial Abuse Specialist™ – Certified programme – next steps
