United Kingdom Association for Solution Focused Practice


The 11th UKASFP Annual Conference will be held 12th and 13th June 2014 at the Adelphi Hotel in Liverpool. The hotel is offering good rates, so hopefully most people can stay on site:  £55 single, £75 double/twin to book: call 0161 923 0300 and quote UKAS120614. Our theme is:  Solution Focus - Works!   That is 'What works' in organisations and evidence based practice (or practice based evidence) in any field.

Our key notes speakers are from Finland, where Solution Focused approaches are very well established: Peter Sundman and Krisse Lipponen ( They will be talking about the psychotherapies outcome project (which Wally Gingerich cites as the most interesting current outcome research on SF).  We are excited to be linking up with the International Festival of Business which is happening in Liverpool at the same time.  The afternoon of 12th June will be a collaboration with SFCT (the association for the quality development of Solution Focused Consulting and Training).  This will give us an opportunity to hear about the latest in solution focused organisational development.  See the programme on line for speakers.  We are offering SFCT members the opportunity to sign up to the conference at UKASFP member rates and hope to welcome many of them to the conference and the Association.  We will be hosting a buffet and jazz supper on the evening of the 12th at the venue; this is included in the full conference price.  The final programme is now available to download.  Full details of prices see the Conference 2014 page. 

The non-member price for people wanting to attend just the Organisational Seminar on Thursday 12th June is £80.

Networking… Learning… Sharing…What Works.

See you in Liverpool!
