- From Skepticism to Engagement: An Appreciative Inquiry Into One Community’s Journey, submitted in fulfillment of the MSc in Relational Leading, Taos Institute / Middlesex University (2016), Amanda Trosten-Bloom. This study aimed to discover and create shared understanding around something good that took place in the form of pre-opening engagement practices in a community mental health campus. In addition to responding to the question “What enabled these community members to shift from a position of skepticism to support for the Dahlia campus?” the study forged new or enhanced relationships between staff co-researchers and community members, amplifying earlier successes and charting a path forward for ongoing partnership.
