This program is designed to provide a new perspective on financial education, presenting it as an aspect of identity. Instead of viewing financial education as black and white, we look at the interconnectedness and how it ties to identity, wellness, mental health and personal development for students. During this webinar, you will receive recommendations to increase awareness of a topic and bridge identity, mental health, and financial education. You also will learn about theoretical models, student development theory, and practical applications of these concepts through the Indiana University MoneySmarts peer financial education program and discuss ways to incorporate a holistic view of financial wellness into programming. This webinar is a great introduction to the Defining Financial Wellness Pre-Conference that will be offered at the 2017 HEFWA Summit.
