The SF world conference 2017

The SF world conference will take place on 22-24 September 2017 in Bad Soden, Germany (near Frankfurt airport). The call for papers is now open until October 27, 2016. Find our form here.

We aim to

bring together Solution Focused practitioners from all over the world and from all applications of Solution Focus: therapy, organizational work, education, social work, etc. We want to be as inclusive of all SF practitioners and their organisations and networks as possible to facilitate learning, exchange, mutual support, and the further development of Solution Focused practice all over the world. We want to honor the SF roots in Milwaukee and envision together what the future is bringing to us. In order to truly live our inclusive ethos, we are also actively seeking for possibilities to make this event accessible for those who cannot be there in person potentially via internet streaming or other technical means.

We are very exited to be able to offer participation for 350 people on-site. The Ramada Bad Soden Hotel 15 Minutes from the airport of Frankfurt has already hosted many Solution Focused events and our experiences have been wonderful. As no-one know which technical means to allow online participation will have been developed by 2017, we will keep our eyes open and are aspiring to give anyone who would like to join easy access. We will also try and make the conference as affordable as possible to participants joining us on-site, for 410 € (excluding accomodation) and with a 50 € discount for members of supporting organisations.
