This article reflects on an experiential workshop offered during a DTAA Professional Development day, facilitated by Laurel Bridges. It was intended “to enhance awareness of the skills of a DMT and the ways in which they can be used to collaborate with other healthcare professionals in order to widen the scope, knowledge of and perceived usefulness of our abilities for those other health care and educational professionals.” A range of experiential processes were explored to both increase awareness DMT skills and consider application of these skills to other professions. This process was also offers as a means to promote and market DMT enhancing communication and inclusion in health care and education teams. (pp 18-23)
