Using the Forums – best hopes for the way we relate to each other
When you post here, it's up to you what you write and how you write it. As a sharing and solution-focused community we'll follow the common sense rules about what constitutes acceptable language and acceptable ways of relating to other people. That way there should be no need for any editing of posts by The Administrator ( that's what's written on my hat!) Let's be the change we want to see, a community focusing on strengths, growth and the cooperative endeavour to act for the best in what we do and how we do it.

- Being solution-focused
Welcome to your village street, for solution-focused practitioners in South Wales and beyond.
There are many people taking the solution-focused approach in their work in our area, supporting people in varied contexts. One thing that will help us to grow our individual practice and enjoy the experience as we develop is to feel we’re part of a community, where we can share successes and find our own support.
Using a community site like this can help. It might seem a bit daunting at first, but when you put this way of communicating online together with face-to-face meetings, I’m sure we’ll find the way and reap the benefit.
My short term best hope is that a few people will put a toe on the water and begin to post thoughts or questions up here on the site. I’ll do my best to check out what’s needed and keep you informed about how it’s going. If there’s anything you want that’s not on here, let me know and I’ll try to fix it.
My medium term best hope is that over the next months we can build our community and have it buzzing by the time the summer UKASFP conference comes along.
The first step: register on the site using the menu at the top of the page. Hover over ‘Focus on community’ and you’ll see ‘Register’ on the drop down menu; click it.
Once you’re registered you’ll get a password automatically sent to you by email. Log on with your name and password. Click the link a the top of a Forum and you’ll see a box where you can post your entry.
If you get stuck, ask the person sitting next you for their ideas, and if that doesn’t work email me on firstname.lastname@example.org anytime. I’m here to help you.
And as Steve de Shazar always said that the end of a conversation – Good luck!
