Therapeutic jurisprudence: judicial and corrections panel.

Abstract

Innovative therapeutic initiatives for the treatment of persons with substance abuse problems have been implemented in the criminal justice systems of California and Arizona. Judicial perspectives and reflections on these programs reveal the multiple issues inherent in innovation and day-to-day operations, from collaboration to implementation, including attitudinal shifts, resource allocation, client issues, and the changing role of judges who practice therapeutic jurisprudence. A pioneering program of treatment for dual disorders among male offenders addresses multiple issues in the provision of psychological services in a forensic setting in California.
