Designed for social, health and legal professionals in the United States, this book aims to help such workers understand the hidden rules which shape many aspects of the lives of people in poverty. The authors argue that staff with middle-class backgrounds are largely unaware that their clients belong to a quite different culture, and therefore often overlook the challenges faced and the strengths demonstrated by people living in survival mode . They suggest strategies for achieving better communication, negotiation and understanding - accompanied by exercises and summaries.
