 About the SFU Annual Conference
This is not just your typical conference where you go from lecture to lecture collecting CEU units. This Solution Focused Brief Therapy conference will be different. This conference is devoted to ensuring all attendees get a behind the scenes look at how this approach works, from the leading minds in the field of SFBT.

Each workshop and keynote speech will be of the highest quality, the type of lecture that will leave attendees more able to use the approach with their clients and armed with information that will last far beyond when the conference concludes.

Trust me, for more reasons than I can list here, you do not want to miss this event!

What is included when I register?
Breakfast, lunch and dinner daily
$500.00 value
We want to make sure you have a good breakfast so that you will have enough energy to fully engage in the learning each day of the conference. We also want to make sure you can have lunch with all of the cool people attending the event. Lastly, we don't want you to have to search around an area that you are not familiar with for dinner. So, registration includes all of the meals provided throughout the event.
Pre-conference Workshop (on January 29th)
$197.00 value
One of the missions for the SFU conference is to provide a strong learning experience so that you can gain skills from attending the event. That's why registration for this conference comes with access to the pre-conference full day workshop hosted by Elliott Connie. It's titled, "A Deep Dive: Swimming in the Solution Focused Ocean" and is all about going beyond the techniques and knowing how to stick to this approach even when the tide of the client's problem is trying to pull you under!
Live Case Consultation (Intervision with Paut Kromkamp)
$97.00 value
Have you ever been completely stuck while working with a client? We're guessing you have! In such situations it is priceless to have someone to consult with who really knows the approach but also knows how to provide helpful feedback. For us, this person is Paut Kromkamp. She is one of Europe's top Solution Focused thinkers and a world renowned consultant for this approach and will be bringing her amazing skills and consultation process which she calls "Intervision" to this event. All attendees are welcome to join at no additional cost.
Continuing Education Credits (24)
$240 value
Most conferences charge attendees a bit extra for certificates with continuing education credits, not the SFU. With us, anyone who needs them will get their credits for no additional charge.
For other events, the total cost of all of this would be $1034 USD, but not for the SFU conference. We want everyone to get to participate in everything we have to offer.

For this reason, you can join us for the SFU conference for just $497 USD.
