Journal of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy

The JSFBT 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. 

2019 conference in Christchurch 

The FIFTH Australian and New Zealand Solution-Focused Conference will be held at the University of Canterbury, in Christchurch, New Zealand 20–23 November 2019. Confirmed keynote speaker is Ben Furman, from Finland. More details are now available on our conference page.


We are also excited to have Dr Jaseem Koorankot coming from India. Jaseem is Asst. Professor of Clinical Psychology, Department of Clinical Psychology, at the Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences (IMHANS), India. He is well know in the solution-focused world, and has presented and published widely. His presentation is titled: "Solution Focused Therapeutic Questions: An Affective Neuroscience Perspective"  


Solution-Focused practitioners register

We are often asked if there are Solution-Focused practitioners in particular areas. Therefore, we have started a list of members who offer therapy services and/or supervision. 2019 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.
