Sharing and building Solution Focused practice in organisations

Fantasy academic centre game - come and play!

At the recent 'SF summit' gathering in Malmo (see my report at, Gale Miller suggested that we start playing the game of 'fantasy academic centre'.

It works like this: Suppose that someone has given us $10 million to set up an multi-disciplinary academic centre, probably based at a university, to produce excellent and provocative material in support of the 'SF paradigm' - the framework within which our practice makes sense. Think about

* What would it be called?

* What kind of people would form the faculty

* What courses would it offer?

* What research would it's graduate students do?

* What publications would it support?

* What conferences/events would it put on?

* What else?
