A Cross-Cultural Triad Training Model for Counselors.
Pederson, Paul B.
This document presents four student-made transcripts of a videotaped, simulated, cross-cultural interview used to describe a training model. This triad model is composed of three persons; the counselor, the client, and a third person from the client's culture who is asked to become the problem in the simulated cross-cultural counseling interview. The third person acts as anti-counselor, since the problem's success depends on the counselor's failure. The model makes several assumptions about the problem: 1) the problem is seen as both good and bad, 2) the problem is complex like a personality, 3) the problem is active, 4) the problem is concrete, and 5) the problem is partly cultural. The interviews deal with sexual mores, sex relations, Chinese culture, and race relations. (Author/AM)
