Creative supervision can be a stimulating and valuable alternative to questioning and discussion in the context of a supervision session. This book proposes using many different techniques and materials, as well as the rich experience of the imagination and the senses, and encourages the reader to go beyond the formal demands of their role, and feel inspired by creativity, spontaneity and experiential work.
The authors draw together theory, research and practical exercises, and provide ideas for setting up and running creative supervision sessions, including how to get started. The ideas and techniques outlined in this book include the use of narrative, drawings and visualisation, and the authors also clearly explain how to make the best use of props and resources such as toys, objet trouve and picture postcards.
The innovative approach described in this book will be of interest to supervisors and non-supervisors alike. It will serve as a road map for expressive arts therapists, social workers, psychotherapists, psychologists and mental health and health care workers, and will also be an invaluable resource for other professionals such as teachers, mentors, coaches and human resources departments.

This book is about inspiring us adults to feel confident in our learning and our ability to deal with "unsticking our stuck ness"...This book helps both supervisors and practitioners recalibrate our ideas about what learning and supervision could offer... As you may have guessed I am keen on this book. The authors have been teaching supervision skills for the past twenty years. If you are a supervisor then you have probably worked wit one or both of them. If you are in supervision - it is odds on that your supervisor has already been influenced by their work. Now all this experience is available in a book. I think this one is a classic that will be in print for years. -- The Homeopath, Gabrielle Pinto, Co-author with Murray Feldman of Homeopathy for Children
This book will not only inspire supervisors to be more creative, it also informs how to aid reflective practice in simple, straightforward and jargon-free language. As an aide memoir, to scan or dip into when we feel boring, deskilled, daunted or just weary, it will be invaluable refreshment. It should be on the reading list of all supervisors, trainers and consultant/coaches. -- Brigid Proctor, Fellow, British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)
