Der Austrian Solution Circle wird 10! Zelebriere mit uns den Auftakt zur 10-Jahresfeier. Wir freuen uns sehr auf Dich!

2009 fand an der Personal Austria & Professional Learning mit der "Lösungsinsel" der allererste ASC-Auftritt statt, Barack Obama trat als erster afro-amerikanischer Präsident sein Amt an und die Gemeine Wegwarte wurde Blume des Jahres. Vieles hat sich in der Zwischenzeit getan, auf der Welt, in der lösungsfokussierten Praxis, im ASC, bei jeder und jedem von uns.

An der ASC-Jahrestagung 2019 feiern wir all unsere vielfältigen Entwicklungen und zelebrieren gemeinsam die Vielfalt und die Verbundenheit dank Lösungsfokus. Wir haben ein spannendes Programm für euch bereit - ein klarer Rahmen mit viel Freiraum für Austausch und neue Ideen: Neben einem Impuls-Workshop über aktuelle Trends in der lösungsfokussierten Welt am ersten Tag, erwarten uns ein Open Space-Rahmen, eine Sneak-Preview mit den Autor_innen unseres neuen ASC-Buches, die zeremonielle Verleihung der ASC Forschungsförderung, ein Einblick in die Nützlichkeit der aktuellen weltweiten Forschung für Deine Praxis und vieles mehr.

Hier geht es direkt zur Anmeldung: austriansolutioncircle.at/jahrestagung/

Mon 3rd to Sat 8th🇬🇧➡️🌐 SOL Summer Retreat 2020: Nourishing your SF roots to enable your SF Flourishing"The physical Retreat that was planned in South-East England can’t take place due to the current uncertain times, but we couldn’t bear the idea of not gathering in some way. So… we came up with the corona-proof plan to offer a world wide ‘individualised group Retreat’! 

The aim of the Retreat is: Nourishing your SF roots to enable your SF Flourishing

Imagine a time and place for you…

  • Where you can care for and nurture YOU - in whatever ways you feel would be most helpful during the Retreat period... 
  • Where you can take time to reflect on your SF practices - personal and professional - by yourself, supported by others...
  • Where you can make, renew, and strengthen your connections in the SF community - locally and globally

 

The expectations on those joining the Retreat remain the same: 

  • The focus is on creating a joyful, easeful environment for all to think, learn, share, play, take care of self and others; based our shared curiosity and belief in SF as a practical and useful methodology in work and in life.   
  • You come prepared to be as fully ‘present' throughout the Retreat as possible - create a ‘retreat bubble’.  Give yourself the gift of four whole undistracted days to focus on what is most nourishing for you and you alone as a person and a SF practitioner, as you would if you were away from home with the Retreat group.   
  • You are open to considering SF being discussed and used in ways that are very different to your own.  That is where some of the richest learnings lie…"

Fri 17th to Sun 19thShow in Google map🇩🇰 EBTA2020 [sic!] - BACK TO THE FUTURESHelsingør, 3000 Helsingør, Denmark"The conference have three themes as described below.: [...] 
1: RESEARCH
EBTA along with SFBTA have for years supported researc in Solution Focused practice, both on a quite practical level and concrete research projects. Research related to the Solution Focused approach, not only document and validate the approach and practice, but also helps spread the word of SF. This conference theme puts highlight on new research results, provide a setting for upcoming researchers to meet and talk, and to create a platform for practitioners to talk about, how we in the future of Solution Focused practice can learn and benefit from the research of today - and best of all, how can we support the research of tomorrow.


2: PRACTICE AROUND EUROPE
“Back to the futures” is the name of this conference. When you look back, you find that you were once in “the land of choices”, and beeing there provided the opportunity to create many kinds of future. And you chose one. This conference theme can be seen in the same way: once the solution focused approach was developed by Steve and Insoo, and some similar ideas by Luc Isebaert and Korzybski Institute. BRIEF in London have simplified the approach the most, others have combined SF with EMDR, or Marte Meo and others have been influenced by hypnoses or ideas from Wittgenstein, Ericsson or…. This track is an opportunity for everyone to become familiar with “what’s going on at my neighbors house” or “I’ll show you, what I’ve developed”.

3: FROM THE PAST TO THE FUTURE
The Solution Focused approach was developed in the ‘80, and ever since practitioners over the world have set their fingerprints on the approach by adding on new elements,  deleted others or integrated ideas from other approaches e.g. Today there’s a variation of fields of practice. Wonder how Solution Focused will look like in 10 or 20 years, and wonder what you will be seeing practitioners be doing in order to say; wauw, they’re working from a solution focused approach. This conference theme will focus on the basic assumptions of Solution Focused practice in order to define - if possible - the core of the approach, thus we in the future can identify solution focused practice. What do you need to see me be doing for you to say, I’m working in a Solution Focused way?"

Tue 3rd🌐 Using Solution Focused ideas in life"The Journal of Solution Focused Practices (JSFP) is a free online resource, available to all. While it is a peer-reviewed journal aimed at an academic audience, it is also a source of all kinds of information, inspiration and ideas which can be used in many settings.

In this free one-hour session on SF World Day (3rd May) Rayya Ghul (University of Edinburgh, UK), Mark McKergow (SFWork, UK) and Anton Stellamans (Ilfaro, Belgium) will each be picking a paper from the journal and, with the aid of some very special guests, be showing how they use Solution Focused (SF) ideas in ‘everyday life’. That means not therapy, coaching or professional helping – it’s about how we go about tackling the challenges, the ups-and-downs that life presents us."
