Culture of Poverty

Arnulfo C. Hernández Ojeda, LMSW, PhD, detention counselor at the Bexar County Juvenile Detention Center, helps you better understand the Culture of Poverty in our latest On-demand Video.

For this 5-part series, Dr. Ojeda addresses the following:

  • definition of the Culture of Poverty,
  • how these feelings impact a child’s worldview,
  • the importance of making goals more reachable by splitting them into smaller steps,
  • the role of attachment models, and
  • how to empower and motivate kids to think differently.

This recording is from a community presentation Clarity Child Guidance Center hosted on February 19, 2010.
