The Centre for Solution Focused Practice


Your SF pre-history.

Here is a fun exercise which invites you to look back before you first came across the Solution Focused approach to look for evidence that this approach always would 'suit' you. Try it.

The Mandated Worker: 4 ideas

We have long talked in the field about those clients who are 'obliged' to meet with a professional but what about those times that the focus of a professional is determined by their setting or their function. Evan George shares some thoughts.

Letting go part 2

Evan George develops the thinking that began in Letting Go part 1. What else might we need to let go, ideas, language that does not fit within our Solution Focused home?

Letting go part 1

What does it take to create a home within which our Solution Focused practice can grow and thrive? Evan George considers this question.

Change or Continuity? Or both maybe.

Chris Iveson reminds us 'If we want to honour our clients’ lives let us pay attention to the continuity of those lives. Celebrate changes of fortune, of thinking, feeling and doing but remember it is the same person who now happens to be walking in the light.'

The Art Gallery

Chris Iveson tells us the story of the origin of the 'Art Gallery' a graphic and effective way of describing the Solution Focused Process that first occurred to him approximately 20 years ago. Since that time many others in our field have borrowed the 'metaphor' seeing just how useful it is in introducing people to the way that we work.
