The Bridges out of Poverty Workshop
This workshop is based on the book Bridges Out Of Poverty: Strategies for Professionals and Communities a collaboration between Ruby K. Payne, Philip DeVol, and Terie Dreussi Smith.
Terie Dreussi-Smith will present insights to understanding the challenges facing individuals who are the ‘working poor’. These are members of our Butler County communities who, despite being employed, may rely upon financial support of some kind.
Participants will learn the importance of relationships and the “tyranny of the moment” ; uncover the hidden rules of survival for poverty and lower middle-class; identify resources needed to achieve a more stable life (it’s not all about money!) and the barriers that limit their acquisition. This workshop is a comprehensive approach to understanding the dynamics that cause and maintain poverty from the individual to a systems level. Bridges Out of Poverty uses the lens of economic class and provides concrete tools for a community to prevent, reduce, and alleviate poverty. Terie will feature strategies for improving work performance and lowering job turnover.
