Web site overhaul
We are making major changes to the AASFBT web site, which will make significant improvements in membership and events payments (and recording of payments). Some parts of the web site may NOT work during the transition. Our apologies.
Solution-Focused practitioners register
We are often asked if there are Solution-Focused practitioners in particular areas. Accordingly, we will be including on the web site a list of members who offer therapy services and/or supervision. You can register your details HERE.
The FOURTH Australian & New Zealand Solution-Focused Conference will be held in Melbourne, 20–22 July 2018, at the University of Melbourne. We have some exciting keynote speakers and are asking for abstracts for other presentations. Details available HERE.
Melbourne coaching workshop with Janine Waldman
Prior to the Melbourne conference, keynote speaker Janine Waldman will be conducting a two-day workshop in Melbourne, Get Coaching with a Solutions Focus.
Note that this is not an AASFBT event; however, we are glad to support this event. Details HERE.
New Zealand news
The one-day Solution-Focused conference was held in Hamilton, New Zealand on 16 March 2018. This conference was NOT an AASFBT event; however, the Board of AASFBT was pleased to endorse this conference. Keynote speakers were Frank Thomas and Kirsten Dierolf. The conference was a resounding success and we send our best wishes to the organising team (which includes our own former Board member, Brent Gardiner). Solution-Focused in New Zealand now has a Facebook page.
Journal of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy
The JSFBT is an international journal published by AASFBT for the international Solution-Focused community. Two issues of Volume 3 (dated 2017) will actually be published this year. We hope to catch up in the next year. Financial members receive the journal as part of their membership. Subscription 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.
