2020 conference in Sydney 

The AASFBT is sad to announce that the SIXTH Australian and New Zealand Solution-Focused Conference is being POSTPONED due to COVID-19. To make up for this we will be planning a variety of online workshops, webinars and presentations over the coming months. The conference will now be held on Cockatoo Island in Sydney July 2021. Sara Smock-Jordan from the USA has agreed to recommit as the keynote speaker. We will again call for abstracts in December.

The programming and planning for the 2020 conference was virtually finished, and so we hope that over the next 12 months we can continue to build on what's already in place. Until then have a look at this video that was made for 2020 for a glimpse of what the next conference will be like. 

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.
