Publisher's Summary

Bridges Out of Poverty is a unique and powerful tool designed specifically for social, health, and legal services professionals. Based in part on Dr. Ruby K. Payne's myth-shattering A Framework for Understanding Poverty, Bridges reaches out to the millions of service providers and businesses whose daily work connects them with the lives of people in poverty.

Find case studies, detailed analysis, helpful charts and exercises, and specific solutions you and your organization can implement right now to:

  • Redesign programs to better serve people you work with
  • Build skill sets for management to help guide employees
  • Upgrade training for front-line staff like receptionists, case workers, and managers
  • Improve treatment outcomes in health care and behavioral health care
  • Increase the likelihood of moving from welfare to work

If your business, agency, or organization works with people from poverty, only a deeper understanding of their challenges - and strengths - will help you partner with them to create opportunities for success.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Couldn't pause, awesome approach to bridging the gap.

I couldn't stop listening to the audio book. It consumed my whole day. I replayed certain segments for note taking and better understanding. I will require my management team to read the book or listen to the audible. A must read for teachers and academic administrators. While this is a great resource for college level , I believe the greatest impact is K-12. We can change a generation by using the BOP teachings.
