Well for starters I work from the assumtion that all parties want a solution, are able to get to a solution where it is a win-win solution.

I would like to start a collection of answers on the following question:

What is different or do you do differently when you (as a mediator) work solution focused in mediation?

My first answer: I have no difficult clients.

Dear all - delighted to find this group here, I have just finished the SF professional course with Mark and Jenny and next week will be undertaking mediation training with PMR. i am keen to bring the 2 together and see SF as an effective tool applied within the '6 stage process' i will be learning next week. If anybody has any wisdom to impart on this topic I would be glad to hear of it!

Dear all
I am very happy having found you all interested in SF mediation. I am working quite an important part of my profession as a conflictmediator - I really like to help resolve conflicts. Thanks to SF my job as a mediator has become much more easy and my clients get much faster to solutions and peace.

Dear all,
I have a problem! Today I worked on another computer and I had to sign in again. Suddenly I saw that I had two profiles. I deleted one of the profiles and guess.... it was the wrong one! I started it up again and I am member #156. I posted some comments yesterday and these disappeared with my profile. I am happy that this group kept saved on the new profile. I now have to check my other settings. It was a bad experience!
Best regards Marc

Hi you All,
thanks for starting the page! My initiative to join this group is because I am a founder and member of a mediationgroup at our local Waldorfschool in Basel. All the members are professionals in mediation or as me in coaching. We offer the school our professional help in case mediation, coaching or facilitation is needed. We are very well accepted by now by the parents and teachers and now even the children are seeking help too. Since May another school in our region has 'bought' our services. I hope to find new ways and insights here in this goup. I already plan of integrating some of the exercises we did in Frederike's mediation workshop in Cologne in a workshops we do for parents and teachers in September. Stephanie

Hi Marc,

thanks for the initiative. Nice picture. Are you sure we have a chance to see those on Texel? I am looking forward to our discussion!

Jumpstart into Solution Focus

You want to learn more about "Solution Focus"?

You prefer a "step by step" introduction instead to start with reading some
voluminous books?

You would appreciate to have a complete "helicopter view" on SF after the first step…
