Toxic wealth; how the culture of affluence can harm us and our children.

Cashman, Orla and James A. Twaite.



216 pages




Cashman, a family therapist, teams with psychotherapist and statistician Taite to explore the "culture of affluence" in America and note the unique problems that often accompany wealthy lifestyles. Written for general readers who qualify as wealthy, this guide examines the stress, negative stereotypes and lack of empathy these individuals and families often experience. The authors use real-world examples from their own experiences to provide practical advice for problems that are often dismissed as inconsequential by other mental health care professionals.
