The recent Anglicare report launched by Therese Rein indicates unemployment in one calendar year increases the chance of divorce in the following tear by 70 percent.
Australia currently has the highest rate of unemployment for decades.
Money and life skills coach Susan Allen says a lack of confidence in our finances leads to general unhappiness and discord. With interest rates rising and uncertainty in the workplace, families are facing tough challenges which will continue through 2010.
“Without support more Australians than ever will be caught in difficult financial situations, over the next few years. This impacts on personal confidence, emotions and ultimately on relationships” says Ms Allen director of Money Skills Centre for Learning a Sydney-based financial and life skills training organisation.
It has never been more important for individuals and families to take a fresh look at their money and life style choices. New skills can enable families to cope with current and future challenges. MSCL workshops address the key issues which trigger stress during times of transition. With sixteen comprehensive modules to choose from there is something for everyone. Simple, easy to follow steps to create confidence and action plans for life.
Many families are struggling to pay their mortgage and bills on time, for the first time in their lives they face unplanned financial stress.Ms Allen says “The opportunity to affordably increase money and life skills is the key to the family working together to handle adverse change quickly and successfully. I believe people wish to remain in control of their lives and are often reluctant to seek help until it is too late. Our workshops allow the individual to learn new skills for now, for the future and for life.“
