The Centre for Solution Focused Practice

BFTC resources

After Insoo Kim Berg’s death in 2007 her sister CJ Kim and her daughter, Sarah Berg decided to give the rights to BFTC’s various training materials to the Solution Focused Brief Therapy Association, a group that Steve and Insoo helped to found in 2002. The Association is deeply grateful to be granted stewardship of this tremendous legacy. We invite you to proceed to the home of SFBTA to browse through the videos, audios and books.
