Fri 6th to Sun 8thShow in Google map🇦🇹 ASC Österreich-Tagung 2017SPES Hotel & SPES Zukunftsakademie, Panoramaweg 1, 4553 Schlierbach, ÖsterreichDie traditionelle Tagung aller ASC-Mitglieder und InteressentInnen findet wieder am 1. Oktober-Wochenende in Oberösterreich statt. Wie bereits bewährt, wird sie auch heuer im Open Space gestaltet und wir freuen uns auf zahlreiche Anmeldungen bis spätestens 15.8.2017!

Was ist diesmal unser Thema?
Innovation.

Innovation heißt wörtlich „Neuerung“ oder „Erneuerung“. Steve de Shazer, Insoo Kim Berg und dem Team von Milwaukee gelang mit der Entwicklung des Lösungsfokussierten Ansatzes eine bahnbrechende Innovation in der Familientherapie.

Wir wollen uns auch auf die lustvolle Suche nach neuen Erkenntnissen, Lösungen und Lösungswegen begeben und gemeinsam „erforschen“, was Lösungsfokus mit dem Thema „Innovation“ heute zu tun hat:

Wie unterstützt Lösungsfokus bei Neuerungen bzw. Erneuerung?
Wie im persönlichen Bereich und bei Innovationen in Organisationen?
Welche Beobachtungen und Erkenntnisse gibt es dazu?
Wie können wir diese nutzen?

Details gibt es auf der Webseite des Austrian Solution Circle ASC

Thu 31st to Sat 2ndShow in Google map🇨🇭 SOLworld DACHSeminar-Hotel Rigi am See, Seestrasse 53, 6353 Weggis, SchweizDie ZUKUNFT ist JETZT und du bis LIVE mit dabei. An dieser SOLDACH Konferenz gestalten wir die Zukunft im Jetzt zusammen, direkt und ungeschminkt, überraschend und inspirierend. Zusammen in Echtzeit mit Kunden, mit Teams und Organisationen.

Die Arbeitswelt steht Mitten in einem faszinierenden Veränderungsprozess und hat völlig neue Herausforderungen zu meistern. Während der SOLDACH 2018 gestalten wir gemeinsam die Zukunft, selbstorganisiert und lösungsfokussiert. Die Zeit der Digitalisierung, Globalisierung und des demographischen Wandels stellt den Wert von Wertschätzung, Ressourcen- und agilem Lösungsfokus noch mehr ins Zentrum. Genau dabei unterstützen wir Führungskräfte und ganze Organisationen.

Wie in einem „Co-working-Space“ laufen an diesen 3 Tagen engagierte lösungsfokussierte Arbeitsprozesse zusammen – inspirieren sich gegenseitig und profitieren voneinander: Einerseits individuell, andererseits kannst du mit deinen eigenen Projekten oder deinem Team weiterkommen.

SOLworld DACH bewegt die deutschsprachige Lösungsfokussierte Gemeinschaften seit 2014. Nun laden wir dich zu diesem vierten Event ein, der erstmals in der Schweiz stattfinden wird.

In einer atemberaubenden Umgebung werden wir – wie auf einer Schweizer Postkarte zwischen See und Bergen – arbeiten. Und es beginnt bereits bei der Anreise zum Hotel Rigi in Weggis – www.hotelrigi.ch.

Wie sieht deine erwünschte Zukunft aus? Welche Veränderungsideen treiben dich an, die Zukunft jetzt beginnen zu lassen?

Wir vom Organisationsteam brennen vor Begeisterung, Zukunft live zu erleben!

Bis dann.

Jesper Christiansen, Simone Gaio, Kati Hankovszky, Felix Hirschburger, Daniel Meier, Geni Staub, Dunja Wicki

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.

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.

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!

Fri 3rdShow in Google map🇧🇪 SF World Day: Samen aan tafel ...Clemenspoort, Overwale 3, 9000 Gent, Belgien"Solution Focus (SF) is een internationaal verspreide methodiek die gebaseerd is op 30 jaar doorgedreven onderzoek naar wat werkt om veerkrachtig verandering aan te gaan. De aanpak richt zich op wat gewenst is (in plaats van het probleem), op het aanwenden van krachtbronnen van de betrokkenen en op het stimuleren van vooruitgang door concrete volgende stappen.

Op de SF World Day willen we met inspirerende voorbeelden van het oplossingsgericht werken op individueel, organisatorisch en maatschappelijk vlak in de verf zetten."

"Het event is gratis ... maar je moet je wel vooraf inschrijven omdat het aantal plaatsen beperkt is. Als je niet komt, laat het ons weten. Wie inschrijft maar niet komt opdagen, vragen we als compensatie 25€ te storten op de rekening van de VVDO (BE85 0688 9472 5906)."

Wed 22nd to Sun 26thShow in Google map🇭🇺 SOLworld Conference 2019: Signs of ProgressTelekom HQ - Workplace of Now, Budapest, Könyves Kálmán krt. 36, 1097 Ungarn
"This year's motto is Signs of Progress. Among the topics likely to be on the agenda are%3A
  • signs of progress within the SF approach
  • signs of progress as an element of interest in our work with clients
  • signs of progress in the position of SF approach among the possibilities for supporting desired change in organisations
  • signs of progress in the visibility of SF in the academic world
  • signs of progress in our communities of practice and how they change and develop
The format we chose has the best of two worlds – a curated fixed programme to make sure that there is enough diversity across the tracks to offer something interesting for everyone in every single slot; and ample time for open space to ensure that the conference is relevant and responds to emergent needs. Add long breaks for mingling,  socialising and spontaneous life-changing conversations and you’ve got the recipe for a conference we think will be one to talk about."

Thu 11th to Fri 12thShow in Google map🇬🇧 UKASFP Conference 2019: Hope in Conversation and ActionBath Spa University, Newton Saint Loe, Bath BA2 9BN, UK
We have received some wonderful ideas for this year’s UKASFP conference, following our ‘call for ideas’. We are now asking for people to firm up their ideas into concrete proposals, and we would love to hear from people who have not been in contact already too.

We want to develop a conference ethos that is both collective and interactive. We welcome submissions from groups of two or more, and whether you are submitting as an individual or a group, we want what you offer to have a strong interactive element.

We also want to encourage submissions from people who have something to share – some research, a project, an idea – that doesn’t immediately lead to interactive activity. We will then have an option of bringing such submissions together into coherent groupings, to enable discussion and the cross-fertilisation of ideas.

Space and time will be made available for poster presentations too, where people can interact around your poster and your ideas.

Tue 16th to Sat 20thShow in Google map🇩🇪 EBTA Summer Camp 2019: The philosophical underpinnings of solution focused practiceKleinbuchfeld, 96114 Hirschaid, Germany
The EBTA Summer Schools play an important role in connecting the energy of the 'next generation' of SF practitioners with the wisdom of long experienced old hands.  This year's event in Germany will have a particular focus on the philosophy and theory (if indeed there is such a thing) of SF work, and how that connects with our everyday practice and work with clients.  Ferdinand Wolf (Austria), Michael Hjerth (Sweden), Mark McKergow (Scotland) and Nick Drury (New Zealand, via Skype) will be joined by Naomi Whitehead (UK) and Matthias Schwab (Germany) with philosopher Michael Gerten from the University of Bamberg also contributing.  This is a real one-off opportunity to get up close with some fascinating and crucial ideas in a collegiate setting. And there will be beer!

Mon 5th to Sat 10thShow in Google map🇨🇭 SOL Summer RetreatSeminarhotel Möschberg, Möschberg 7B, 3506 Grosshöchstetten, SchweizIt’s time to celebrate the 10th anniversary of our SOL Summer Retreat. It started with a group of 6 enthousiastic SF Practitioners in Switzerland. The mixture of learning, sharing and relaxing together has proven to be successful and very inspiring! It’s one of the best means to fully recharge your batteries!

Following Steve de Shazer’s quote “look at what works and do more of it” we will once again gather with a group of enthusiastic Solution Focused practitioners 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 beautiful venue.

May we invite you to www.moeschberg.ch, a family owned small seminar hotel on top of the hill with a stunning view. This place is just perfect with flexible workshop spaces and a large garden. You will enjoy the hospitality, a wonderful tasty cuisine and the quiet of the mountains (with just a few cows grazing around). The inn can accommodate just around 30 people and will be reserved for us, Retreaters.

As for the program:  we’ll keep the well-proven flexible 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!
