Event description
Two Day workshop – Presented by Nairn Walker

About this Event

Ever have clients / 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’?

What will I learn?

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

Presented by:

Educator Nairn Walker has worked across Australia, New Zealand, the US and the UK with over one hundred thousand professionals to raise awareness of Dr Ruby Payne’s insights into the issues presented by economic disadvantage in every level of our schools, businesses and communities. She is committed to raising awareness, understanding and outcomes through sharing strategies that make a difference.
