Brain, science, and SF group revided

Hi, after a long while being elsewhere than here. I'm back, and have decided to start sharing more of the wonderful stuff on neuroscience and psychology I've encountered during my google-travels. First in line. The pleasures of uncertainty: research by Tim Wilson and Daniel Gilbert. More social psychology than brain-science, but cool stuff. See you in the SFBS group

New groups and some video

I've just started two groups on our ning. One on SF, Brain, and science, and one on Micro-tools and the plus model. Go check them out, and join if you like. I've also added some video. One is a some thought on SF in response to questions from the organizers of an SF conference in 2006 (EBTA Krakow). The other is a absolutely fantastic video with V.S. Ramachandran on the most weird brain phenomena imaginable. If this doesn't make you intersted in neuroscience, nothing will. The Ramachandran… Continue

Hi Michael
Thanks for your reply. 19 wonderful colleagues from Japan attended our workshop in Bucharest so you should have a good level of awareness for your session at J-SOL!
I'd like to upload our case study but I'm not quite sure how to do it on the SOL site - any ideas? Or, I could just e mail it to you if you give me your address. It's very much work in progress; Loraine and I are meeting next month to see how we can extend both the use of PLUS and our evaluation of it with learners.
Of course, I will keep you in touch.
With warm wishes.

Hi Michael
I thought you would like to know that Loraine Kennedy and I ran a very succesful workshop in SOL 2010 about using a SF approach in meetings. Of course, one of the techniques we discussed and demonstrated was the PLUS mico-tool. We presented a case study on how we have introduced the PLUS tool at Tate and this included some evaluation of the results. I will be adding this to the SOL website soon.There was a lot of interest and it seems that PLUS is taking off in lots of different ways, so thanks again for the great idea!
All the best.

It sounds like this might be an area ripe for a good SF-neuroscience partnership.

Hello Michael, That sounds like a great conference in Helsinki. Is there a particular white paper or book that you'd recommend that shows how the knowledge of brain research can be practically applied to SF work?

Hello Michael,
We did talk about brain science in Cologne. It is fascinating stuff. I'm hoping to make it to Bucharest next year and share some ways I've found to make the science make sense to neophytes. thanks again. Bob

And I am going to write more on how I'm using it in the MT group soon! There's a lot of playfulness in it and it's being extremly well recieved.

Dear Michael, have you seen Jespers "application" of you microtools? wow, it looks really good (and works excellent)

Hi Michael, nice your group about micro tools. Have youread my article about Miracle scaling. It's the same philosopy of Micro tools. If yes what do you think about?

Sure thing!
U can find my email on my website.
However, be aware that I am pretty busy finishing up some projects, I would like to work on SF foundations starting the week of the 23rd of June, so no hurry!!




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…
