OverviewHidden Messages in Culture-Centered Counseling offers the first comprehensive overview of the Triad Training Model for counselor education. First introduced by Paul B. Pedersen about twenty years ago, this model has been widely used across counseling and counselor education programs - both in university settings and in continuing education workshops. The theory behind the Triad Training Model has been touched on in other literature, but nowhere has it been brought together and presented in a unified format. In this text, he presents the theoretical underpinnings of the model, drawing from counseling but also social psychology and other fields. Also shown are the major applications of the model in counselor training and education, some of the nontraditional applications, and a demonstration of its flexibility to a wide range of professional, practical/clinical, and academic contexts. Pedersen offers a wide-ranging review of the key literature on the model, its applications, and the various theoretical currents from which it derives.
