Exploring the Connection Between Self-Regulation, Financial Self-Efficacy, and Financial Behaviors





This webinar is an MQ University sponsored event.

About the Webinar

This webinar will provide an overview of research that explored the relationship between self-regulation and financial self-efficacy; and examined how these two constructs interact and  influence financial management behaviors.  Self-regulation has been construed as a multi-use executive function that can manifest in many different forms and contexts, including conflict management, mindfulness practices, and self-care.  The researchers found strong and significant relationships between self-regulation, financial self-efficacy, and financial management behaviors. Findings suggest that in order to improve financial management behaviors, the practice of broader-based self-care techniques may be beneficial.
Learning objectives include:
  1. Define general self-efficacy and self-regulation and learn how are they connected
  2. Explain how task-specific self-efficacy differs from general self-efficacy
  3. Understand how seemingly unrelated activities support the adoption and support of one another
  4. Learn how self-regulation can be improved
