Bridges Out of Poverty Workshop Hosted in Ontario, OH
Catholic Charities is hosting a Bridges Out of Poverty Workshop on Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2016, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Area Agency on Aging, 2131 Park Avenue West, Ontario, OH.
Bridges Out of Poverty helps social work, healthcare and legal services professionals who work with those in poverty gain a deeper understanding of their challenges – and strengths – to better partner with clients and create opportunities for their success.
Based on the book, Bridges Out of Poverty: Strategies for Professionals and Communities, by Dr. Ruby Payne, Phillip DeVol, and Terie Dreussi Smith, the workshop addresses poverty at the individual, community and structural/policy levels, with an understanding people in poverty can be planners and decision makers in the process of moving from welfare to work.
Workshop facilitator Anne Seifert is a Lifetime Certified Bridges’ Trainer. Topics covered include:
- Eleven key resources of a customer/employee
- Economic realities affect patterns of living
- Mental models as effective interventions for cognitive and language barriers
- Principles for improving outcomes with individuals from generational poverty
CEUs are available for SW, DODD and RCH. The $40 registration fee is due by November 10. For more information, contact Diane Bemiller at 419-524-0733, ext. 228 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
