E • B • T • A - Conference 2011
Conference of the European Brief Therapy Association
23th - 25th of September 2011Frames & beyond
Since 1994, EBTA-conferences have been a European Forum of exchange and inspiration. They are a continuing, annual opportunity to get in touch with or refresh your knowledge of solution-focused brief therapy and discuss its future trends in theory and practice as well as scrutinize its principles in depth. The 2011 conference title "Frames & beyond" centres on the framework of solution-focused brief therapy. How does this framework determine our solution-focused thinking and action, and how do we influence the frame through our action at the same time?
We are pleased that Aron Aambø, Scott Miller, Kenneth Gergen, Gale Miller and other key speakers agreed to provide us with their ideas on "Frames & beyond", from the social context to the personal framework of the clients and therapists all the way to the frame of theory and philosophy itself.
During the congress, you may also look over an experienced solution-focused interviewer’s shoulder (live or via video-recorded interview situations) and attend numerous presentations and workshops as well as pre- or post-conference workshops, all of them featuring a broad variety of current practice techniques and experience in solution-focused brief therapy. As an example, Scott Miller will provide insight into work with provocative cases in his post-conference workshop.
This is our first time welcoming you to Dresden, a city which is always worth a visit, with or without a conference. Your conference venue, the "Dreikönigskirche Church", is directly in the "Innere Neustadt"-quarter, which was designed as an "ideal baroque city". It is also well within walking distance of the historical Old Town, with the rebuilt Frauenkirche, the Semperoper, the treasure chamber of the Green Vault (the Grünes Gewölbe) and the Old and New Masters Galleries. The Neustadt quarter – a trendy nightlife district – is also only a stone's throw from here. If you have some more time, Dresden’s surrounding area, with its delightful vineyard landscape and the stunning sandstone scenery of the nearby Saxon Switzerland, are in their own right each worth at least a day trip!
We are looking forward to your attendance at the conference.
