The origins of this collection of lecturers started back in 1989 when Chris Iveson, Harvey Ratner, and Evan George founded BRIEF in London. Their fascination started when they were introduced to the work of Steve de Shazer and has only grown in the subsequent years. BRIEF was the first organization to bring the Solution Focused Approach to Europe and in a short amount of time they became the largest Solution Focused training organization in the world.
Several years later in 2010, Elliott Connie attended a conference in Malmo, Sweden where he would meet Adam Froerer. By chance the two started to hang out through the conference and realized they shared similar thinking about the Solution Focused Approach but more than that, they just "clicked" and immediately started working together. In the following years the two would work on many projects, including research, lectures, and books. In time, Elliott Connie and Adam Froerer became the leaders of a new generation of Solution Focused professionals.
In time, the two entities combined and began to lecture together as well as teaching online courses to share the their combined ideas about the Solution Focused Approach. Through the years of working together we have grown to be like family and have contributed to one another's ideas about this approach.
