Do you overspend? Undersave? Keep secrets about money from a spouse or family member? Are you anxious about dealing with your finances? If so, you are not alone. Let's face it–just about all of have complicated, if not downright dysfunctional, relationships with money.

As Drs. Brad and Ted Klontz, a father and son team of pioneers in the emerging field of financial psychology explain, our disordered relationships with money aren’t our fault. They don’t stem from a lack of knowledge or a failure of will. Instead, they are a product of subconscious beliefs and thought patterns, rooted in our childhoods, that are so deeply ingrained in us, they shape the way we deal with money our entire adult lives. But we are not powerless. By looking deep into ourselves and our pasts, we can learn to recognize these negative and self-defeating patterns of thinking, and replace them with better, healthier ones.

Drawing on their decades of experience helping patients resolve their troubling issues with money, the Klontzes and describe the twelve most common “money disorders” - like financial infidelity, money avoidance, compulsive shopping, financial enabling, and more — and explain how we can learn to identify them, understand their root causes, and ultimately overcome them.

So whether you want to learn how to make better financial decision, have more open communication with your spouse or kids about the family finances, or simply be better equipped to deal with the challenges of these tough economic times, this book will help you repair your dysfunctional relationship with money and live a healthier financial life.

About the Author:

DRS. BRAD AND TED KLONTZ, father and son pioneers in the emerging field of financial psychology, are president and CEO of Klontz Coaching and Consulting and co-founders of Your Mental Wealth ™ .

From AudioFile:

The authors' guide to personal finance disorders outlines 12 common scripts-feelings and values we learn in early life-that subconsciously keep us from managing money in a healthy way. The scripts are grouped into three clusters: avoidance, excess, and relationship-based malfunctions. Vivid case studies blend seamlessly into the smooth flow of useful ideas. The presentation is less about what to do than about why many of us don't make money choices that are more respectful of our healthiest priorities and expectations. The younger member of this father-son team of financial psychologists narrates. Though he sounds a bit weak at first, his sincerity and absence of judgment become the dominant features of the listening experience. T.W. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
