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 later developed into four separate programs. Each program can assist users facing different types of difficulties in life.
