Professional Journal

Twice a year, the Ruth Cohn Institute for TCI-international brings out a professional journal, "Themenzentrierte Interaktion - theme-centered interaction". The journal is published by Psychosozial Verlag (Walltorstr. 10, 35390 Gießen, Germany).

Members of RCI receive the journal automatically at no charge, along with login data for the digital version.

Non-members can order the journal and several articles directly through the publisher Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht.

Journals that were published before 2017 can be ordered through Psychosozial-Verlag.

The TCI Journal contains the following categories:

  • Main topic (varies)
  • Theory and conception
  • Practise
  • Specific subjects
  • Open for discussion
  • Findings
  • Book reviews

Writing for the professional journal TCI practitioners confront scrutiny and continuative reflection. Requirements rooted in the work with TCI are treated on a theoretical level to get impulse for your TCI development. Practical examples from economy, administration, college, school, church, social pedagody, supervision and other fields are put up for discussion. Other concepts and methods are reflected within the scope of TCI.


Announcement: Content for the TZI journal 1/2023

As of this year, Ruth C. Cohn’s intellectual legacy will be made accessible to the public at the Archives of the Humboldt University in Berlin. The 1/2023 issue will be dedicated to documenting and reflecting on this process, with contributions regarding the archival work and editing of texts from the international symposium marking the occasion of the opening of her estate entitled “Ruth C. Cohn (1912–2010) – the life and work of a courageous woman”, which will take place from the 20th to the 22nd of October, 2022, in Berlin, Germany.

Furthermore we will be publishing texts belonging to the Cohn estate, one of which is Ruth C. Cohn’s speech on courage of January 14th, 1957, which will be published in German translation for the first time. In order to have sufficient space to do justice to this event and by way of exception, we will not be accepting further contributions to this issue.
