Bridges Out of Poverty by Ruby Payne

boop (lol)

The next event we will be putting on is going to be featuring the book Bridges Out of Poverty.  Our first event was fairly small, but we had a GREAT time, and as a result of that meeting, the first book we read has been added to the recommended reading for new paramedic/EMT students going through classes in NE Indiana. Change starts in small steps, and by introducing medics (and health care in general) to the psych/sociological world that we live in, we can hopefully prevent burnout and unnecessary conflict. This reads, as one of our colleagues aptly put, like a sociology textbook. That being said, there is a wealth of information in here that will undoubtedly aid anyone in public service or health care.
