London SF Group

Join us for our regular networking meeting.

6.00: drink buying/gossip

6.30: introductions with each participant describing something going well this month/week/day/hour!

7.00: Topic of session - facillitated discussion on topic or reflecting team on someone's issue or case.

8.00 end/more drinks...

Meet other solution-focused practitioners. We're a mix of therapists, coaches, organisation consultants, trainers, counsellors and others who appreciate the SF approach in work and life.

Our meetings sometimes have a topic chosen in advance, and sometimes the themes emerge from discussions during the session.

We are the London branch of both UKASFP - http://www.ukasfp.co.uk/ and of SOLworld - http://www.solworld.org/

Whatever your level of SF experience, you'll be welcome to join our activities and discussions.

Our meeting takes place on the first Tuesday or Wednesday (alternates) of each month:

    A lively and fun session in which brevity was the name of the game! We seemed to cover a lot of very useful ground, which certainly whetted all of our appetites for next week’s conference...

    Hi everyone, hope you're all well. Really pleased to notice that even though I can't make this one (again), it's less than a couple of weeks until the conference! Have a cracking evening and look forward to catching up with some of you in Brum instead! Best wishes, Ali

    Hi Anita

    You have the sequence right. The presenter/issue holder doesn't have to say anything other than thank you to everyone - but they ususally make some comment about what has been particularly useful. As fpr timings: the presenter should be able to state the request in about 2 minutes; clarification should take no more than about 5 minutes (though we often find this is the most contentious part: is this really clarification or advice in disguise?!); affirms take just a minute or two as everyone in the reflecting team mentions just one thing which has impressed them; the reflection/comments pase takes as long as you have or continues until everyone has passed. Do let us know how it goes. Jenny

    Hi all, I'm planning to use a reflecting team for casework this week. I'd really appreciate it if someone could set me on the right path with the sequence to follow.
    I know the person describes the case/issue first
    then participants ask clarifying questions if needed
    then is there a round of affirms, followed by a round of comments?
    and then does the person with the case/issue make some comments/give feedback on usefulness...

    Also, the timing for each of these seems quite important, so maybe some guidance on this..
    thanks
    Anita
