Meredith briefly describes the significance of her 2 week intensive trip collaborating with DMTs Kim Dunphy and Alexandra Jordan to offer DMT to diverse groups, during a time of unexpected political unrest. The emergent nature of the work as well as the opportunity to work with a range of groups and populations, supported the skill development and confidence for Meredith, in applying DMT to her community upon return, including people with a disability. The opportunities for professional growth are expanded upon in the article, as the collaborative work has grown beyond the initial in-county pilot project. (p. 48)
