The one-day Solution-Focused conference was held in Christchurch, New Zealand on 15 March 2017. This conference was NOT an AASFBT event; however, the Board of AASFBT was pleased to support and endorse this conference. Keynote speakers were Elliott Connie (an exciting and engaging SF presenter from the USA) and AASFBT President, Michael Durrant. The conference was a resounding success and we send our best wishes to the organising team (which includes our own Board member, Brent Gardiner). Solution-Focused in New Zealand now has a Facebook page.
The JSFBT is an international journal published by AASFBT for the international Solution-Focused community.

AASFBT supports local "affiliate" groups. These groups of Solution-Focused practitioners provide opportunity for networking, support and seminars. The groups are most likely geographically defiined; however, it would also be possible for a group to include SF practitioners working in a particular context. Details on affiliated groups HERE.
