The Supervision tool box

Additional ideas, information and resources

Congratulations on purchasing supervision, a resource for building strengths-based supervision conversations from start to finish!

Supervision plays a pivotal role in professional development for human service professionals. It can be a powerful means of discovering and learning for both supervisor and practitioner, with the benefits flowing on to clients.

Now that you have the cards, you will be wanting some fresh and innovative ideas for how to incorporate the cards into your work, and perhaps your life.

In this Tool Box, you will find the digital booklet, which contains lots of information about eating disorders, disordered eating and other ‘shadowy companions’ like depression and anxiety, plus loads of activities and suggestions for how to use the cards in different settings. (This can be printed as an A5 hardcopy booklet.)

As a BONUS gift to you, we are giving you access to the digital version of the cards! The digital cards are interactive, making them ideal for building rapport and connection. And because they are digital, you can use them anywhere, anytime.

Feel free to browse this page and get inspired by stories from other people on how they’ve used the cards. And don’t forget to explore the range of other supporting materials and information, which is at your fingertips any time you need it.

This Tool Box is exclusively for people who have purchased the cards. We will continue to add resources and ideas so check in regularly to see what’s new!
