2020 conference in Sydney 

The SIXTH Australian and New Zealand Solution-Focused Conference will be held at the Cockatoo Island in Sydney from  9–12 July 2020. Confirmed keynote speaker is Sara Smock-Jordan, from the USA. More details are now available on our conference page

The 2019 Conference in Christchurch was a huge success - perhaps a conference like none other. Planing for the 2020 conference is well under way, and we will be updating our conference page as we confirm speakers etc. We are now accepting abstract submissions. 

We are also excited to have delegates from Singapore who have already booked their flights!


Journal of Solution-Focused Practices

The JSFP is an international journal published by AASFBT for the international Solution-Focused community. The association has attempted to publish 2 editions per year, but this has proven to be more difficult than we anticipated and we are subsequently behind in publication. We are very happy to say that he AASFBT is in the process of rebuilding the journal so that we can start publishing again in 2020. We are proud to announce that Sara Smock-Jordan is the new Editor. In September we have published a special edition of the journal as a fundraiser for 2020. We will then switch to an open-access format to publish, which means that the JSFBT will be available for free without the need to purchase a subscription or membership. 

Please refer to the Journal pages for more information.

Solution-Focused practitioners register

We are often asked if there are members who offer therapy services, coaching, training or supervision in Solution Focus in particular areas. Therefore, we have started a list of members who offer solution focused approaches in ANY field. 2020 Members of the AASFBT can register your details HERE.



Local Solution Focused groups

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