David B. Wexler (University of Arizona - James E. Rogers College of Law) has posted Therapeutic Jurisprudence and its Application to Criminal Justice Research and Development on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
This essay, based on the 3rd Annual Martin Tansey Memorial Lecture, delivered May 26, 2010, at the Criminal Courts of Justice in Dublin, and sponsored by the Association of Criminal Justice Research and Development, introduces the perspective of therapeutic jurisprudence (TJ) and applies the perspective to several criminal justice issues, such as sentencing, probation, and parole. It calls for an academic-practitioner interdisciplinary and international partnership to enable the field to grow and flourish.
