Themenzentrierte Interaktion (TZI) / Theme-centered-interaction (TCI)

 

 

Als graduierter Lehrbeauftragter des Ruth Cohn Institute International mit einem bestehenden Ausbildungsvertrag kann ich TZI in allen Bereichen lehren, darin ausbilden und AusbildungskandidatInnen supervisorisch begleiten. Die größte Erfahrung habe ich damit im Zusammenhang mit Kursen und Begleitungen an Universitäten und Hochschulen und an Fort- und Weiterbildungsinstitutionen innerhalb und außerhalb von Kirchen und Religionen. Interkulturell bzw. interreligiös angelegte Projekte interessieren mich besonders. Eine wichtige Lernerfahrung ist dabei u.a. Indien.
