People in poverty face challenges virtually unknown to those in the middle class or wealthy class – challenges from both obvious and hidden sources. The reality of being poor brings out a survival mentality, and turns attention away from opportunities taken for granted by everyone else.
If you work with people in poverty, some understanding of how different their world is from yours will be invaluable. Whether you’re an educator, employer, policymaker or service provider, this breakthrough training will give you practical, real-world support and guidance to improve your effectiveness in working with people from all socio-economic backgrounds.
Since 1995 the work based on the breakthrough book A Framework for Understanding Poverty by Ruby K. Payne, Ph.D. a leading U.S. expert on the mindsets of poverty, middle class and wealth, has guided hundreds of thousands of people through the pitfalls and barriers faced by all classes.
GraceWorks presents A Framework for Understanding Poverty training with the option to attend one of two sessions:
Friday, February 19, from 9:30 am – 2:30 p.m. at the Franklin Public Library or
Saturday, February 20, from 9:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. at the GraceWorks Conference Room, 104 Southeast Parkway, Franklin
Seating is limited and lunch will be provided.
