Abstract: Ever wonder why individuals we serve make decisions or choices that just don’t seem to make any sense? Hear about the latest research: Scarcity—The New Science of Having Less and How it Defines Our Lives. Learn what some of those common decisions or choices are, the economic and personal rationales that are often behind them, and how we can best support those we serve. Spend time considering alternate plans to best assist our students/consumers as they transition from the classroom to employment and self-sufficiency.
