Bridges Out Of Poverty

Bridges out of Poverty is a 2 day workshop based on Dr Ruby Payne’s ‘A framework for Understanding Poverty’. The workshop teaches the hidden rules of economic class and spreads the message that, despite the obstacles poverty can create in all types of interaction, there are specific strategies for overcoming them.

The highly acclaimed Bridges out of Poverty 2 day workshop is to be delivered by Nairn Walker from Social Solutions. Nairn has delivered workshops to over fifty thousand professionals in the past 10 years, to raise awareness of Dr Ruby Payne s insights into the issues presented by economic disadvantage and how they affect every level of our communities, schools and businesses.

Nairn is committed to strategies that make a difference in communities, so her 2 day workshop provides participants with practical tools for changing the way they go about their work. Nairn’s workshop is relevant to practitioners across the employment, health, education, housing, justice, business and social services sectors.

The workshop will be taking place from Friday, 22 April 2016 – Friday, 29 April 2016 in Devonport, Tasmania. For further information, view the event page here.
