Psychology and Advice on Navigating the Financial Anxiety of COVID-19

COVID-19 has brought a lot of uncertainty into our lives but it does not have to create chaos. In this webinar, Meghaan Lurtz, Ph.D. the incoming Financial Psychology lecturer for Columbia University’s Master’s in Wealth Management program at the School of Professional Studies, will discuss what COVID-19 is doing to our minds and our wallets so listeners can begin to check-in to what they are thinking and feeling. Additionally, Dr. Lurtz will discuss a variety of action steps individuals can take to support their mental health and potentially improve their financial situation.
