Bridges out of Poverty – Day One & Two

 Ever have clients or work with families who…

Have TV, stereo and video games but no money for rent, food and ‘basics’?
Don’t turn up for appointments and don’t know what they want?
Often treat you and your agency with disrespect, suspicion, and/or disdain?
Don’t seem to care about work, next week, or their long term future?
Appear to engage in decision making that ‘just doesn’t make any sense’?

The purpose of the workshop is to optimise community and economic sustainability, increase practitioner efficacy and enhance outcomes for people who can find themselves trapped in situations of disadvantage.  It explores the impact of economic diversity in our country, considers the root causes of poverty and presents proven and realistic strategies and pathways to provide constructive and sustainable assistance to growing numbers of people caught in this cycle. The “Bridges out of Poverty” workshop will provide participants with the knowledge, understanding and tools to tackle sensitive issues in respectful and constructive ways. It offers solutions that are practical and strategic, addressing everyday interactions through to policy implications in every sector, from justice, health and housing, education and employment, through to transport and training.

An in depth presentation includes:

  • why clients often behave the way they do
  • how economic class affects behaviours and mindsets: the hidden rules of generational poverty, middle class and wealth
  • the Importance of Mutual Exchange
  • strategies for optimising outcomes with individuals and families
  • the impact of language registers, discourse patterns and story structure on relationships and outcomes

DAY 2: APPLYING  BRIDGES  CONCEPTS (NB: Day 1 is a pre-requisite to attendance at Day 2)

Explores:

  • the role of family structure in attitudes and behaviours
  • the skills of mediation
  • relationship building
  • mentoring
  • how to assist clients from poverty to learn quickly, explore options, and develop future stories
  • how to use mental models to communicate effectively
  • developing an action plan to improve services to clients

This workshop introduces strategies for changing program designs, policies, and procedures to improve outcomes. Participants will use case studies to identify principles of change and apply the material to their own practice.

Social Solutions is happy to tailor workshops to specific sectors such as Health, Business, Justice, Housing, Welfare, Employment, Early Childhood, Community Renewal, Churches or Local Government.  Equally, we can deliver a training to address whole community needs, dealing with some of the challenges and issues that impact every sector.
