money our entire adult lives. But we are not powerless. By
looking deep into ourselves and our pasts, we can learn to

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.

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,

relationship with money and live a healthier financial life.
