So What?
If you are culturally sensitive, your work will be more effective

You may be frustrated less often when you understand about differences

You will develop better client relationships

Example 1:
Relationship is the number one priority for people living in poverty
– so a lot of decisions are based upon relationship; respect; authenticity:

Express appreciation for the story
Ask a lot of clarifying questions

Example 2:
Individuals in generational poverty may use
the“casual register” of linguistics
– 800 words and a lot of facial and body language:
Statements may not have a beginning, middle and end.
