Here's a pre-written email financial advisors can send to local psychologists to get them to sign a petition to create a financial division at American Psychological Association.

 

If you're a financial advisor who wants to be treated like a professional, here's a chance to act like a professional: email psychologists to sign a petition to create a financial division.

This Website Is For Financial Professionals Only


Please consider even sending it to psychologists you do not know but who are in your hometown.

 

 

The No. 1 stressor cited by Americans for the last two years, according to the APA’s own annual survey, is money. Meanwhile, our society’s charitable class of mega-millionaires families increasingly suffer from drug and alcohol abuse and other dysfunction.

 

 

While depression, anxiety, and other psychological problems linked to money problems are afflicting more people than ever, the APA offers no specialized training to equip psychologists to deal with money-related psychological woes.

 

As a financial advice professional, it is in your interest to support creating a new body of knowledge in psychology, a subsection called financial psychology. 

 

 

The pre-written email below makes it really easy for you to help psychologists better understand money problems and behavioral finance issues.

 

 

Dear Psychologist:

 

Wealth management and psychology seem unrelated. However, the two disciplines are colliding: The No. 1 stressor cited by Americans for the last two years, according to the American Psychological Association’s annual survey, is money.  Meanwhile, our society’s charitable class of mega-millionaires families increasingly suffer from drug and alcohol abuse and other dysfunction.

While depression, anxiety, and other psychological problems caused by money are afflicting more people than ever, the American Psychological Association offers no specialized training to equip psychologists to deal with money-related psychological woes. That’s why I am writing you.       

Dr. Mary Gresham, one of your colleagues, has petitioned APA to create a financial division to promote the study of financial psychology and specialized training to clinical practitioners. Please log into APA’s website to sign Dr. Gresham’s petition to create a financial division at APA.

Please also forward this email to your fellow APA members and encourage them to sign Dr. Gresham’s petition as well. It’s just the right thing to do.

Thanks,
