The Advanced Centre for Women’s Studies is pleased to announce the next workshop using the Theme Centered Interaction (TCI) Method at our Institute titled, Workplace and Gender: Soft Man? – Strong Woman? A Journey to the Hidden Sides of My Personality from September 4-8, 2012.
This is part of a series of workshops organised by the Institute for an eclectic group interested in participatory pedagogy and personal development. It is of general application as well is useful for all those involved in classroom teaching, training or any kind of participatory work in groups. Theme Centered Interaction is a concept of running groups, not just a bag of techniques, rather it is a distinct method based on the idea of learning as an active, creative and discovering activity.
‘Living Learning’ as TCI is also called, emphasizes the attentive awareness of oneself and others in personal and professional contexts; the strengthening of independence and autonomy in relationships; imparting knowledge in a lively way, involving participants in this process; promoting cooperation rather than rivalry and integrating the demands of the working task with a regard for the individual and for the interpersonal relationships.
Other details of the workshop are mentioned below. This workshop can be credited towards the basic training as well as for those working towards their diploma of TCI of the Ruth Cohn Institute for TCI-International. It is most important for those who have done a workshop or two to come back again since we are following the building block system to certification.

Theme: “Workplace and Gender: Soft Man? – Strong Woman? A Journey to the Hidden Sides of My Personality”
Social values on masculinity and femininity are important determining factors on how we are brought up to think of ourselves.
Men are socially defined as hard, strong, tough, aggressive and even ruthless. Hardness metaphorically implies a power of a kind and suggests social, political and physical success of men. This caricature of man demands all men to be strong, powerful, forceful, dynamic and successful and this demand can be exacting and violent to men who may be soft and reticent.
For Women softness is a definitive characteristic and speaks of emotional sensitivity, warmth and nurturing personalities. Strength of women mostly is negatively related to hardness and masculine traits.
In the context of changing gender roles, we will explore these stereotypes and definitions of masculinity and femininity. Do these fit me? What or Who really am I? How do I love and respect myself for my difference from these stereotypes? How do I deal with men who are not hard and women who are strong?
This workshop opens the possibility to understand oneself in context of others and to broaden our perspectives on men and women in our changing society beyond the limited contrasts that emphasize difference between genders.
