Event Details

Two day workshop with presenter Nairn Walker

The Bridges out of Poverty Workshop gives both the social service provider and the community member further insights into understanding, working and communicating with individuals from backgrounds of generational disadvantage. 


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 (Note: Day 1 is a pre-requisite)


  • 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.

Arrive at 8:30am for a prompt 9:00am start.

This event is primarily for DET staff, with an @edumail address.  However, if you are a local community based/not for profit organisation working with school aged populations, and are interested in attending, please contact the event organiser below.
