Understanding the Culture of Urban Poverty: Building Resilience and Resources

Posted by Sources for Human Services on November 6, 2017

Workshop discusses understanding the culture of urban poverty

Fairmount Behavioral Health System and Sources for Human Services will present Understanding the Culture of Urban Poverty: Building Resilience and Resources in Children & Youth on January 12, 2018, 9:30am- 4:00pm at Fairmount Behavioral Health System, Philadelphia. 5 CEUs will be awarded and the cost is $130.

The culture of poverty is a concept embedded in social theory that explains the cycle of poverty. Although the title of this workshop points to urban settings, the culture of poverty reflects the concept that the economically disadvantaged possess unique value systems that shape characteristics, behaviors and attitudes of individuals and families regardless of geographic location.

Poverty, coupled with disparities associated with mental health and substance abuse treatment, can create great challenges for individuals, families and communities. This workshop is designed to provide participants with a conceptual framework for understanding the impact of poverty on their clients, provide best practices to enhance provider-client relationships and improve treatment outcomes.
