Dr. Grubman is a clinical psychologist who works with some of North America's most affluent families, helping them to negotiate the many unique challenges wealth poses for the family. This article is one I found very interesting. Dr. Grubman et al describe the dynamics within affluent families. The perspectives of a person who grew up around wealth versus the person that is new to wealth are very different. Acknowledging and understanding these differences can be the first step to more effective communication within a family.
As Dr. Grubman assures us, wealth and life can be integrated successfully in families and this article is a great starting point for improved communication within the family.
