The Story Behind this Program
The website was developed by Ben
Furman and Lorenn Walker who share common interests in combining
restorative justice practices and solution-focused therapy.
Ben and Lorenn
first developed the website in 2009 after they had developed
a professional relationship over the internet. They met in person
in Helsinki in September 2011 where they provided a two
day training on solution focused approaches to helping people
involved with crime and wrongdoing. Lorenn developed the
training for the students in a psychotherapy eduction program
of the Helsinki Brief Therapy Institute.
Ben and Lorenn prepared this
free website originally as an apology letter program and it was
four separate programs. Each program can assist users facing
different types of difficulties in life.
