Circle Experience

With people transitioning out of prison, jail, probation, and parole; youth transitioning out of foster care; families that have suffered harm from violence; neighbors in a conflict that turned violent; school staff in conflict with each other; families in child welfare cases.

In 2004 Insoo Kim Berg helped me develop a solution-focused and restorative transition planning circle process for incarcerated individuals who meet with loved ones, which we train others how to use. I also developed a foster youth transition planning circle around 2002.
