Bridges Out of Poverty Training Supplement (Legacy Edition)


  • Author: Ruby K. Payne, Ph.D., Philip E. DeVol, Terie Dreussi Smith
  • ISBN: 978-1-938248-74-0

NOTE: The legacy edition is for those certified or recertified as Bridges trainers before March 1, 2017. If you or your certified trainer were certified or recertified after March 1, 2017, please use the current edition.

The Bridges Out of Poverty Training Supplement Legacy Edition is designed specifically for participants in Bridges Out of Poverty trainings and is meant to supplement the Bridges training. This expanded and updated edition replaces the Bridges Out of Poverty Workbook.

Highlights from the PowerPoint presentation that are featured in the book have been reorganized to match up to the order of the presentation. Expanded note-taking sections give participants more space to contribute their own stories and ideas to the work.  

A brand-new introduction was written for this edition by Bridges coauthor Phil DeVol. We’ve also included his article “12 Thinking Tools for Bridges Out of Poverty Initiatives” as an appendix.

While this book is not intended as a standalone product, it is an indispensable tool for any group being trained in Bridges Out of Poverty concepts by an aha! Process consultant or Bridges certified trainer.
