Ruby K. Payne, Ph.D., founder and president of aha! Process, Inc. (1994), with more than 30 years experience as a professional educator, has been sharing her insights about the impact of poverty and how to help educators and other professionals work effectively with individuals from poverty in more than a thousand workshop settings through North America, Canada, and Australia. Her seminal work, A Framework for Understanding Poverty, teaches the hidden rules of economic class and spreads the message that, despite the obstacles poverty can create in all types of interaction, there are specific strategies for overcoming them. Since publishing Framework in 1995, Dr. Payne also has written or co-authored nearly a dozen books surrounding these issues in such areas as education, social services, the workplace, faith communities and leadership.
