We analyze three fundamental configurations in practicing counselling in order to help the autonomous capabilities of an individual to make decisions about his/her own choices, and to help individuals with different conflicting interests or diverging opinions to mediate situations and reaching consensus.

Abstract

We analyze three fundamental configurations in practicing counselling in order to help the autonomous capabilities of an individual to make decisions about his/her own choices, and to help individuals with different conflicting interests or diverging opinions to mediate situations and reaching consensus. The method followed is an approach based on an interdisciplinary collaboration of a group of experts, respectively, on decisional logic, consensus reaching procedures, and mediation strategies. The idea is that the interconnection among these experiences can have many applications in practicing with incisiveness counselling, mediation, and consensus. The originality of the study consists into considering the Ars Maieutica of the Counsellor in the direction of the interlocutor in a “unitary logic” of “Decision Making - Mediation Task- Consensus Reaching”, and based on a reciprocal interaction and strategic behaviour. Moreover, an original formalization of the practice of counselling, mediation strategies, and consensus procedures, based on mathematical multiobjective and multiperson decision making and game theories is considered. Fuzzy extensions are sketched.
