There is a growing array of resources available on financial literacy and financial management, some of which are designed specifically for social workers working with low-income and marginalized populations. However, practitioners may struggle to acquire the knowledge and skills required to be effective at promoting financial capability, in part because there exists little guidance for selecting which opportunities for education and training are most appropriate. This chapter provides a brief overview of why social workers should seek to enhance their capacity to help clients with personal financial issues, followed by a review of the types of resources, education, and certifications available. This chapter also presents the beginnings of a framework for practitioners seeking to improve their skills in this area, as well as a discussion of the needs of social work professionals working to promote financial capability for targeted populations.
