Understanding the Culture of Poverty

12/11/2020

9:00-4:00

Virtual

, OH

All individuals exist in a cultural context, and as service providers, we need to be able to understand how to recognize and address those various cultures in our work. Unfortunately, the culture of poverty is frequently not addressed. This training will explore the culture of poverty experientially. Participants will examine the hidden rules among classes, the differences between generational and situational poverty, and how these factors can shift and inform the therapeutic relationship. Finally, we?ll identify strategies to apply this knowledge with our clients and their families.
