Abstract

Severity of financial problems: The role of financial knowledge and competences, financial behaviour, financial self-efficacy and motivation of ‘Thuisadministratie’ clients

In this study we examine if and how self-evaluated financial knowledge and competences, financial behaviour, financial self-efficacy, and motivation are associated with the severity of financial problems of clients in ‘financial self-management projects’ (Dutch: Thuisadministratie). These projects involve support provided by volunteers. Our data included 249 respondents who filled out a questionnaire at the start of the support. The results indicate that particularly unhealthy financial behaviour and lower levels of financial self-efficacy relate to more serious financial problems. Volunteers support people with serious financial problems in getting access to formal debt counselling. Besides this, volunteers should not only focus on improving financial knowledge and competences, but also on contributing to higher levels of financial self-efficacy and healthier financial behaviour of their clients.

    In de etalage
    In deze terugkerende rubriek worden opvallende internationale publicaties, van Nederlandse wetenschappers en passend binnen de scope, in de kijker gezet. De redactie zet zich ervoor in dat waardevolle bijdragen, eerder gepubliceerd in buitenlandse wetenschappelijke tijdschriften, ook in het Nederlands beschikbaar zijn en laagdrempelig worden uitgelicht.

    Scriptieprijs
    Elk jaar reikt de redactie de Mens & Maatschappij Scriptieprijzen uit aan een artikel gebaseerd op een bachelor- en masterscriptie van hoge kwaliteit en met opvallende relevantie voor de sociale wetenschappen. In 2020 won het onderzoek door Lotte van Beers over hoe persoonlijk contact en mediacontact weerslag hebben op houdingen ten opzichte van verschillende migrantengroepen de prijs voor de masterscriptie.

    Mens & Maatschappij, founded in 1925, publishes articles representative of the entire social sciences research field, regardless of school of thought, and always with a keen eye for quality and social relevance. A thorough and constructive review procedure is part of the publication process.

    Each year, the editors award the Mens & Maatschappij Scriptieprijs to an article based on a BA and MA thesis of high quality and with striking relevance to the social sciences. In 2020, Lotte van Beers' research on how personal and media contact affect attitudes towards different migrant groups was rewarded the prize for her MA thesis.
