Course Description

Participants will learn the “hidden rules” of class and become better able to positively engage those in a different socio-economic class.          

Relationship is based on communication, and communication is based on understanding. Each class / cultural group has its own rules and norms. To bridge the cultural gap, you must understand the rules of that group.

This workshop is based on three bodies of Research:

1. A) A Framework for Understanding Poverty – Ruby K. Payne
     B) Bridges Out Of Poverty
2. The Social Development Strategy – Dr.’s Hawkins & Catalano
3. The 40 Asset Model – Search Institute, Dr. Peter Benson
