Abstract

While therapeutic jurisprudence is often used to facilitate healing in defendants engaged in the criminal justice system, it is not often used to facilitate healing in the crime victims. This paper explores methods of utilizing TJ to promote healing in crime victims by focusing on those who have the greatest ability to do so — prosecutors and judges.

Keywords: therapeutic jurisprudence, crime victim, healing, prosecutor, judge, defendant, victim impact statement
