Bridges Out of Poverty
Strategies for Professionals and Communities Training Supplement, Revised Edition
If you didn’t grow up in poverty, you may be unaware of the“hidden rules” that govern many aspects of life for the poor. People in poverty are often in survival mode, where the future holds no promise, and support systems taken for granted in middle class and wealth are non-existent. If your business, agency or organisation works with people from poverty, a deeper understanding of their challenges – and strengths – will help you partner with them to create opportunities for success.
Bridges Out of Poverty is a unique and powerful tool designed for social, health and legal services professionals. Based in part on Dr Ruby K. Payne’s myth-shattering A Framework for Understanding Poverty, Bridges reaches out to the millions of service providers and businesses whose daily work connects them with the lives of people in poverty. You’ll find case studies, detailed analysis, helpful charts and exercises and specific solutions you and your organisation can implement right now to
- redesign programs to better serve the people you work with
- build skill sets for management to help guide employees
- upgrade training for front-line staff like receptionists, caseworkers and managers
- improve treatment outcomes in healthcare and behavioural healthcare
- increase the likelihood of moving from welfare to work
NOTE: This workbook contains some highlights from the book Bridges Out of Poverty: Strategies for Professionals and Communities and is normally used in conjunction with Bridges workshops.
