2021 conference

ASFA is sad that the  SIXTH Australian and New Zealand Solution-Focused Conference was cancelled due to COVID-19. To make up for this ASFA hosted a variety of online workshops, webinars and presentations each month in 2021. We are planning to do the same in 2022, and expand this to include a monthly group supervision program.

ASFA were proud to be involved in the 2020 & 2021 SF24 Conference in August 2021. You can see many of the 2020 presentations and workshops here, and 2021 workshops will be available soon.

You can find details info about SF24 HERE

Please consider presenting at the conference in 2022 - we need you to show off your work and to teach us about SF from your perspective. The place to submit abstracts and ideas is HERE.

Australasia will be hosting a 6 hour section of SF24, so we need your help to fill up the program.


The Journal of Solution Focused Brief Therapy was originally published by the AASFBT. In 2019 the AASFBT appointed a new editor (Sara Smock Jordan) and established a new international collaboration to to help produce the journal. The new journal was officially re-launched as the Journal of Solution Focused Practices on July 28. You can download the journal here.

The JSFP Editorial Board is undertaking a process of reflection and education in order to improve our understanding of how to make the journal one which serves our entire community and not just those with privilege.  We are committed to this process and willing to be challenged and to listen and act on that challenge. Please refer to our full statement on the JSFP and social privilege here, and also to our Diversity and Inclusion Statement.

Take a look at the Journal pages for more information about the JSFP.

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. 2021&2022 Members of ASFA can register your details HERE



Local Solution Focused groups

ASFA 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, but please also check our Events Page.


2020 AGM

The AGM was held on Monday 20 July, and during this meeting members voted on a special resolution to change the name of the association to the Australasian Solution Focused Association.
