EBTA BOOK – Theory of Solution-Focused Practice

The EBTA Book “Theory of Solution-Focused Practice” 2020 has been published!

We, the authors, are happy with this co-creative process of shaping the theoretical thoughts of the solution-focused practice in a creative, joyful and sometimes reiterative systematic way that lead to the carefully crafted  ‘co-knowing’ formulations in the book. Also disputes and differences are visible together with the additional reviewer ‘co-knowers’ views. It has been like a piece of Jazz: constantly changing and developing, with many variations in an open-ended process that provides space for further developments. 

Now we are excited to see where it goes next!

Dear All!

Just a short notice, that current and prior EBTA board members are preparing some surprise for our participants! New book about SF practice is right now in writing process :)

In particular book’s articles will be about SF practices which are still rooted in the SFBT tradition, taken from Milwaukee and Bruges, with a focus on what is different now after 25 years of SF developments in Europe. Thus articles would be much more about current explorations, new ideas and redefinitions rather than descriptions of basic tenets of SFBT. 

Book will be available for all conference participants and later on for the rest of the world :)

Dear All!

We kindly inform you about a possibility to obtain scholarships for these who are in difficult situation and want to come to the conference. This was decided by the Board before the Bad Soden conference that we will support in this way not only EBTA members, but also these who want to join the conference, preferably also join EBTA , but for sure will fulfill the condition of writing their report from the conference and wish to popularize SFBT in their setting.


Please make some “noice” about that possibility. Inform folks who may be interested in.

Everyone interested is supposed to contact conference organizers directly:
