On Wednesday, May 19, at 6:00pm-7:00pm, ICM will host a presentation by Prevent Child Abuse Georgia: If Not Me Then Who? Poverty-Informed Training
Growing up in poverty has life-long consequences for a child’s physical and mental health and economic well-being. While professional working with children and families can attest to witnessing the detrimental impacts of poverty, very few have ever had any formal training or education on it. This training will help remove barriers and promote better communication and relationships with families experiencing poverty. Using first-hand stories and perspectives, participants will learn the facts, underlying myths, examine their own perceptions, and be able to enact tangible strategies to uplift our community’s vulnerable populations.
Just as we believe in a trauma-informed approach, we also believe that poverty-informed practices will greatly change our communities’ ability to assist those facing poverty.
