EBTA is an open, non-profit, civil society organization for people interested in supporting solution-focused work in different contexts within the helping professions and communities in Europe in co-operation with other approaches, practices and research methods. EBTA supports the development of solution-focused ideas, theory and practice.
EBTA promotes, advocates and develops solution-focused theory, research and practice within psychotherapy, counseling, education and related areas of work as well as in other professional contexts like rehabilitation, specialized fields of health and social care in Europe and beyond.
EBTA promotes dialogue with other solution-focused actors and other approaches
SOLWorld stands for Solutions in Organisations Link-up. The strap line is "Sharing and Building Solutions Focused practice in organisations" and is for leaders, managers, coaches and consultants - worldwide.
For us, sharing is the key word. The originators of the approach, Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg, have not trade marked their work. Indeed, the SF approach itself is based on collaboration. It is important to us that SOLWorld retains this generosity of spirit and the collaborative ethos
SOLWorld consists of a website, a mailing list - for sharing and change of SF know-how and learnings - and local and international conferences.
