Bridges out of Poverty – Day Two Workshop

Category: , ,

Please note:  This a a day two workshop only – prerequisite is completion of Day one.

Strategies for  Professionals and Communities

Ever have clients 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’?

Turn all this around!  The ‘Bridges Out of Poverty’ Workshop can take a lot of stress out of managing your caseload and optimise outcomes for the people with whom you work.  This training is designed for

  • practitioners, case managers and policy makers
  • community organisations
  • law enforcement
  • counsellors
  • employment agencies
  • health care professionals
  • church communities
  • social service providers
  • welfare agencies, and
  • community leaders

Change the way you see people!

DAY 1:  INTRO  TO  BRIDGES  CONCEPTS

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
  • how those differences affect opportunities for success
  • the eight resources that make a difference in success
  • strategies for optimising outcomes with individuals and families
  • improving retention rates of new employees from poverty
  • interventions that improve outcomes
  • the impact of language registers, discourse patterns and story structure on relationships and outcomes
  • strategies that make a difference to all of these issues

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

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.
