A Cognitive Approach for Educators, Policymakers, Employers and Service Providers
With a view through an economic lens that has only become sharper and more focused since its initial publication in 1995, Framework’s premise is unchanged: Middle-class understandings of children and adults in poverty are often ill-suited for connecting with people in poverty and helping them build up the resources to rise out of poverty and into self-sufficiency.
Nearly 25 years and 1.8 million copies later, innumerable individuals and groups have used Framework to create a groundswell of responses to the challenge of poverty. Educators, social service and healthcare workers, law enforcement and the judiciary, communities, employers, and individuals from all walks of life are engaged in supporting children and adults to build resources, patterns of learning, and behaviours that will help them exit poverty.

Most anti-poverty programs lack a system-wide scope of effort. But when ALL stakeholders – people in poverty, communities, businesses and organisations – come to the table with a coherent plan of action, amazing things happen as evidenced in the articles in this book.
Bridges Out of Poverty champions alliances of support and helps individuals and communities that are ready to break free of poverty. Rather than create reliance, Bridges communities create new understanding, skills, resources and motivation.
Dr. Paul Slocumb paints a riveting portrait of the emotional abyss that engulfs many of our male children. Particularly powerful are the book’s six real-life case studies and the creative solutions Slocumb describes.
