This 2024 edition of the InterAction Collection is taking you along on a journey, offering a sustainable view of innovative practices, insightful research, and compelling stories that inspire the solution-focused evolution. As our world navigates through tumultuous times, the significance of creating solutions rather than focusing on problems has never been more apparent.

It is a wonderful time to open our heart to all the possibilities ahead, to connect in the moment and see what emerges.

Welcome from the 2020 Edition

John Brooker, Carey Glass and Annie Bordeleau The continuing development of InterAction SFiO and SFCT before us, have produced InterAction uninterrupted, from print to online, since 2008. Twelve years' worth of high-quality Solution Focus organisational content in one place is a valuable contribution to the Solution Focus community. It is a global collaborative effort and to be part of this is exciting for us. Enabled by our new website design, we start the next transformation with this edition, towards The InterAction Collection of Solution Focus Practice in Organisations.

Welcome to the 2019 Edition

John Brooker, Carey Glass and Annie Bordeleau A special edition featuring the SOLWorld 2019 Conference! This year, we met in Budapest from the 23-24 May to explore “Signs of Progress”. It was a beautiful setting for the international SF community to reconnect, share ideas, talk about developments and work on common projects. SFiO collaborated closely with the SOLworld organisation team to record workshops and SOLTalks and to conduct interviews to share here in this edition of InterAction.

"Focus on the 80%"

Tara Gretton Introduced by Anna-Julia Szabo In this interview, we see how the Solution Focus approach has changed the culture of a school. There is a focus on enabling students and staff to have meaningful conversations, concentrating on possibilities and solutions and what is already working. Tara Gretton introduced the Solution Focus approach in this school. Staff and students were very welcoming, full of energy with a hunger for new possibilities for useful change.

"Being captain of their boats"

liselotte-baeijaert Celebration Introduced by Julia Kalenberg This story is of SF practitioner liselotte-baeijaert bringing SF to students of a school for hotel workers on the beautiful island of Sumba/Indonesia. A tale of how SF can work even when language first seems to be a barrier. It is a story of mutual learning, of working with what is there and of combining SF practice creatively with bodywork.
