This chapter introduces the candidate to the concept of the skills toolkit, and suggests ways that they might reframe their own clinical skillset to build their own toolkit. It describes the value of reframing a skill learnt in a particular context, to one that is more modular and transferrable in form. The chapter suggests a couple of practical exercises to demonstrate how the candidate might start to build their own skills toolkit, and then reflects on the value of dissecting into a particular learnt skill and linking it to a contextual emotive element. The chapter finishes with an exercise designed to help the candidate explore and repackage their clinical skills, linking the skills to contextual elements.
