For decades, the deficit model has attributed demeaning characteristics to members of racial and ethnic minority communities. The deficit model focuses on perceived weaknesses and oftentimes stereotypes assigned to vulnerable communities. The tenets of the Community Cultural Wealth model can be used to refute and irradicate such an assignment of deficit. This model celebrates the untapped wealth that resides in vulnerable communities. The Community Cultural Wealth model focuses on inherent capital (wealth) while incorporating a strengths-based approach. This presentation will introduce participants to the Community Cultural Wealth model and provide practical strategies to immediately integrate into practice.
