Abstract(s)

Many scholars and practitioners in Family Science/human services are familiar with the systematic racism that exists within their institutions, communities, and greater society. We often discuss these issues in our lectures, presentations, and papers, yet what have we done to model change for the racial/ethnic minority communities we study and serve? In this four-paper symposium, we 1) discuss the benefits of adopting a cultural assets model, 2) highlight the importance of applying a growth mindset model when working with our students, 3) revisit the importance of strength-based approaches when training our students, and 4) discuss lessons learned from research training programs targeting underrepresented students.

Objectives

(1) To identify the harm in applying a deficit model; (2) To identify conceptual models that prepare the next generation of researchers and practitioners focusing on ethnically diverse populations; (3) To familiarize the audience with strength-based practices in practicum and internships as they relate to working with ethnic minorities; (4) To familiarize the audience with existing research training programs at post-secondary institutions focused on the next generation of ethnic/racial minority scholars
