Self- Determination Talk, with Professor Baruch Bush

“Students and practitioners of transformative mediation often underemphasize the importance of client “empowerment” – the opportunity for clients to recapture the sense of agency that conflict has compromised. Why does the achievement of client empowerment often go unseen, even when its value has been explained and emphasized in written work, training, and otherwise?  The effort to answer that question makes sense only if one accepts the deeper premise that client agency – and human agency in general – is a core value whose furtherance should stand at the centre of any client assistance process. That premise lies at the heart of transformative mediation theory and practice, and other related processes. What justifies that premise? What is it that explains the value placed by transformative mediation adherents on this phenomenon of human agency per se?  That question, and possible answers to it, are the subject of this talk by Prof. Bush.”
