Sat 30th to Thu 5thShow in Google map🇮🇹 EBTA Summer Camp 2018A'Ferachiusa, Via Silvio Pellico, 8, 75026 Rotondella MT, Italy
EBTA International Task-group (ICT) organizes a Summer Camp, where some senior SFBT practitioners share their professional know-how with younger practitioners, who want to promote solution-focused thinking and practices in their work and life surrounding.

Some younger practitioners expressed during the Vienna conference 2015 their hope that EBTA would promote ways for the older SF generation to be mentors for them. A Summer Camp offers a good way to do this in a relaxed atmosphere and place with enough time to reflect and share.

Sun 5th to Fri 10thShow in Google map🇭🇺 SOL Summer Retreat 2018Hotel Rosinante Country Inn, Szigetmonostor, 2015 Hungary

For the 9th time already a group of enthusiastic Solution Focused practitioners are invited to connect, inspire, be inspired and fully energized while learning about SF through friendly open space exchange, relaxing in the summertime, enjoying the peace and calm of a delightful venue.

May we invite you to Rosinante Inn again www.rosinante.hu/en, on a small island in the Danube, 20 kilometers from Budapest, Hungary. We loved this venue during the 2016 Retreat so much that we decided to return to this lovely place with its perfect, flexible workshop spaces, great hospitality and wonderful cuisine. You will enjoy the wellness section of the inn, the quiet of the island in the Danube and the surprise outdoor programs if you choose so. The inn can accommodate just around 30 and will be reserved for us, retreaters.

As for the program: we’ll keep the well-proven flexible and always surprising open space formula throughout the retreat. For those who have not been yet to a retreat: Do you have creative, innovative, playful SF practices to share? Are you looking for supportive partners for professional ideas you are about to develop? Do you have questions you want to discuss with colleagues who have had vast experience in SF work? Come to the retreat! We all have SF in common, so: trust that the right people will be there to create the right moment so that the right things can happen – in the workshops and in-between them! J

Also: be quick to register, we expect the event to fill up fast! So, grab this opportunity to meet your SF friends and colleagues from all over the world and to make new acquaintances in the SF community.

Fri 21st to Sun 23rdShow in Google map🇧🇬 EBTA Conference Sofia 2018Sofia Hotel Balkan, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Sofia, pl. "Sveta Nedelya" 5, 1000 Sofia Center, Sofia, BulgariaDear colleagues and friends,

Back in 1997 the annual EBTA Conference took place here in Sofia. The Solution-Focused approach was newer and younger. We were happy to hear from Steve de Shazer, Gale Miller, Arild Aambo, Alasdair MacDonald, Agneta Castenberg and Anders Claesson, Jacek and Mariola Lelonkiewich, Wolfgang Eberling, Marie-Christine Cabié, Kerstin Malberg, and others about the state of our solutions-building art at that time.

21 years later we shall have the next EBTA Conference in Sofia. Wondering where and how far Solution-Focused Brief Therapy has come, and where it is going, we shall hear from Agneta Castenberg, Alasdair Macdonald, Ben Furman, Kirsten Dierolf, Manfred Fogt, Mark McKergow, Michael Durrant, Peter Sundman, Stanus Cloete, Stephen Langer, Thorana Nelson, Yasuteru Aoki, …, and hopefully from you, what kind of evolution we all have gone through, and how we see the future of what we do.

So, put this event to your calendar, register for it, propose your own workshop, presentation, or poster, and choose your accommodation! We shall try to do our best to make it a memorable and useful bunch of conversations for you!

Please find all details here.
