Professional Applications Of TSI


TSI interfaces with the education sector at a number of levels. It functions in classrooms as a life skills development, life education and values process in which children can participate to assist them to discover positive ways of living and relating. It also provides a means of developing a ‘culture’ within a classroom that gives space to discuss and work through many difficult personal and relational areas. TSI can provide the ‘counseling’ component that is required when disciplinary issues need resolution. It is safe, effective and formative in this regard.
