The Roma community is often caught between two perspectives. Often is referred at the negative part which seems to represent this community. On the other hand there are organizations that continually emphasize the rights of the Roma population and the positive aspects that are found in their culture. In this article we will consider exploring a range of appreciative models from Roma community; called by us "success stories" that are shaped around this group. Among the elements analyzed, we will stop first on appreciative inquiry, in terms of which we will refer to the "success stories" collected from the media and specialized literature. The present research also proposes a model of group analysis proposed by Mircea Zidarescu that refers to the awareness of Roma children on infractional or delinquency acts.
