Chapter 11 Relational Math and Circus: Deeper practice of developmental reflexivity
Restricted access

Part Three, Chapter Three introduces the "math and circus" technique of ART that is used to examine and transform difficult interactions and, ultimately, foster the collaboration necessary for ART. The concept starts with writing a script of an interaction between two people, almost like a theater skit. Math comes into play by scoring each person's dialogue - figuring out what kind of power was present in the interaction and if it was more or less relational. People then act out the scene with their "worst" and "best" persona. In this way, people can inquire - in a not too serious context - why they act the way they do. By doing this work alone and together they remove obstacles and arrive at future conversations primed for collaboration.
