Dear Friends,

With this short notice we bid a final farewell to all of you around the globe. Your friendship and support will be the most enduring legacy when BFTC closes its doors on December 15, 2007

Tributes to Insoo and Steve have been prepared by their dear friend and colleague, Yvonne Dolan. After Insoo’s death in 2007, her sister, CJ Kim and her daughter, Sarah Berg, decided to give the rights to BFTC’s various training materials to the Solution Focused Brief Therapy Association, a group that Steve and Insoo helped to found in 2002. The Association is deeply grateful to be granted stewardship of this tremendous legacy. We welcome you to proceed to the home of SFBTA to browse through the videos, audios and books.

Below are links to essays, handouts, and other things that were posted on the BFTC website. Please feel free to use, giving credit to Steve and Insoo
