Chapter Seven shows how the stages of Adult Developmental Theory
shape ART. What's essential to ART is understanding how to make
collaboration succeed by moving from independence to interdependence
with others. A woman who plays the comparison game between herself
and female colleagues is shown as an example of this theory.
Exploring her own discomfort through developmental reflexivity is
key in stepping forward to collaborate with others. ARTists must
help people rise to maturity in situations of disagreement. Personal
reflection, facing our shadow selves, and building developmental
friendships all play a key role in working together to make this
happen. In doing this, systems of hierarchies evolve.
