Deceitful predatory lenders and businesses consistently perpetrate financial abuses on clients and consumers; until 2011 there wasn’t much to be done about it. Now this country finally has an independent federal agency specifically created to look out for consumers’ best interests.
This agency, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), is an invaluable resource for all mental health, human service and community action professionals.
The Center for Financial Social work is proud to partner with Social Justice Solutions (SJS) and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to provide a webinar training on the role of the CFPB in all helping professions’ client work. In this session you will learn:
- What the CFPB is; what it does.
- How the CFPB complaint process works.
- What are CFPB’s financial education initiatives and resources.
- How important and relevant CFPB is to client work.
- How CFPB works to protect clients from deceptive or misleading practices.
- How the CFPB empowers clients to take more control over their financial lives.
“The central mission of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is to make markets for consumer financial products and services work for Americans–whether for a mortgage,credit card, or other consumer financial products.”
Who Should Attend?
Community action professionals, social workers, human service and mental health professionals (along with anyone else) who has ever felt frustrated or angry that they or their clients were taken advantage of by the dishonest financial practices of lenders or businesses.
Darian Dorsey is the Chief of Staff for the Office of Consumer Response at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. She has been involved in every major facet of the strategy, design, and development of the Office of Consumer Response.
Dubis Correal joined CFPB in November 2011 as the Strategic Partnerships and Outreach Coordinator. Prior to that, she was the Director of the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Financial Education.
