The Centre for Solution Focused Practice


Leaving Home/Newbury Street.

Today is a momentous day for Chris and Harvey and Evan. We are leaving home to find our permanent places in the virtual world in which we have temporarily lived for the last 18 months. The Blue Door has closed on us for the last time.

TeamTalk: a workshop for changing times

In Solution Focused Practice there is always something new: new ways of thinking, new ways of doing. It is a reflection of life, a constant renewal, a constant adaptation to changing circumstances. Life has changed dramatically over the past eighteen months, ending for some and challenging for the rest of us.

Summer School is here again

The BRIEF Summer School 2021 will take place ONLINE from Tuesday 17th August to Thursday 19th August. As for some years the Summer School team will be Chris Iveson, Adam Froerer, Elliott Connie and Evan George.

Job for a Solution Focused Therapist

However Oxford Brookes have got really interested in Solution Focus. This is a great opportunity. Click Read More for the link

Congratulations! Congratulations!

All of us at BRIEF congratulate Carrie Jordan, who completed our first Advanced Certificate in Solution Focused Practice course (2020) and who has just recently been successful in being accredited in Solution Focused practice by UKASFP. Carrie was part of the cohort who managed the shift from a face-to-face course to an online course. We look forward to news of more of you following in Carrie's footsteps.

Solution Focused Self-help books

We are from time to time asked about SF self-help books. Here is a selection. We have not 'road-tested' them, and no recommendations are implied.

New Course: Solution Focused Groupwork

BRIEF is offering online group supervision sessions for practitioners who are already incorporating Solution Focused practice into their work. The group will be facilitated alternately by Chris Iveson and Evan George.

Online BRIEF Summer School 2020

What an international treat our two day online Summer School has turned out to be! What a learning experience for all of us! Just check out the range of countries that were represented. Amazing.


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.
