TCI – Theme Centered Interaction
according to Ruth Cohn
Theme Centered Interaction (TCI) is a Concept for Personal Development and Working with groups. The System is based on a active, creative and discovering process of Learning – "Living Learning" – and Working.
TCI was developed from Experiences and Insights of the
Psychoanalysis and was influenced by the group therapies and the
eperimentalisme. Ruth Cohn initiated it and was developed further
within the Workshop Institutes for Living Learning (WILL) by her and
her colleagues in the USA and later in Europe.
TCI uses structures in the process of the group to achieve a dynamic
balance between the various needs of the individuals, the interaction
in the group and her task (I - We - It - Balance) and to respect the
environment ("the Globe") in a closest and widest sense.
TCI is based on fundamentals - without those, the system would break down into incoherent techniques: The human autonomy increases with his active awareness of his social and universal interdepence. Decision concerning values are key factors, they have to respect Life and its evolvement. The free will occurs within internal and outer boundaries - a expansion of these bounderies is possible. TCI is a systematic approach to realise such expansion through the psycho-dynamic and group-pedagogical processes.
