Kia ora. This is the homepage of the Aotearoa Solution Focused Practice Conference.

We are a group of solution-focused practitioners from around Aotearoa that arrange a Solution Focused Practice conference each year.  While open to all who are enthusiastic about SF practice, we particularly welcome presentations, workshops and ideas from Māori people and groups, people living with disabilities, LBGTQI+ people and indeed, anyone from any under-represented or disadvantaged group within Aotearoa.



It is with genuinely mixed feelings that we are letting you know that due to a range of reasons that include financial viability, lower than expected numbers, and the current climate, we have to cancel this year’s Aotearoa Solution Focused Conference, SFP 101 and associated masterclasses.

We as an organising group have not made this decision lightly, and while our best hopes of running a conference this year have not been realised, we have significant memories, and are incredibly proud, of the five fantastic conferences that have been held since 2016.

Those who have paid for and of the 2023 events will have their payments refunded in full within the next couple of weeks.

We will also be contacting those who were going to present by separate email.

Thanks to all those whose paths have crossed ours over the years since 2016.  Our best hope is that you will find other avenues to fulfil your SF needs at this time.  At this point given the current circumstances with ongoing COVID outbreaks and the increasing uncertainties in the world we do not have any plan to run another face to face conference in the near future; in saying that, we have not ruled it out, but rather we need to take the time to reflect and review.


Nga mihi aroha
