All individuals exist in a cultural context, and as clinicians we need to be able to understand how to recognize and address those various cultures in treatment. Unfortunately, the culture of poverty is frequently not addressed. This training will explore the culture of poverty experientially. Clinicians will examine the hidden rules among classes, the differences between generational and situational poverty, and how these factors can shift and inform the therapeutic relationship. Finally, we’ll identify therapeutic methods to apply this knowledge with our clients.
