Culture of Poverty Training (FREE) by First 5 Institute

RSVP HERE: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/culture-of-poverty-training-registration-64265812776?fbclid=IwAR0Vr1mFiAW5xDBaPjqEL8WPtJaW0Lt--c7ovp5W8OP6UYju3XgdaTmgV-c

Join us in a discussion about the culture of poverty. Using the work of Ruby K. Payne, Ph.D., we will explore some of the ideas presented in her book, A Framework for Understanding Poverty. Presenter Susan Wilson will focus on some of the significant ideas presented in Payne's theories including:

  • Poverty is relative

  • Poverty occurs in all races and in all countries

  • Economic class is a continuous line, not a clear-cut distinction

  • Generational poverty and situational poverty are different

  • An individual brings with him/her the hidden rules of the class in which he/she was raised

  • Two things that help one move out of poverty are education and relationships

  • How a two-generation approach to assist parents with taking action builds strength and resiliency

  • Four reasons one leaves poverty are: it is too painful to stay; a vision or a goal; a key relationship; or a special talent

Who Should Attend

  • Providers of services to children 0-to-5, parents or primary caregivers of children 0-to-5, or pregnant women

Includes

  • Lunch & snacks

This free training is open to Shasta County parents, pregnant women, and providers serving young children, ages 0-to-5, and their families. This training is brought to you by First 5 Institute, First 5 Shasta's education extension, whose mission is to provide the highest quality opportunities for young children, pregnant women and providers of services to children 0-to-5. Register early - only 30 spots available!
