Abstract

A recent thoughtful criminology paper urges the use of procedural justice (PJ) and therapeutic jurisprudence (TJ) to form an integrated theory of specialized court programs. The present essay explores the important TJ/PJ conceptual relationship, fully supports their integration, and highlights how, to enhance compliance and rehabilitation, some TJ judicial conversations need to explore topics beyond the important PJ ones of voice, validation, and respectful treatment.

Keywords: therapeutic jurisprudence, procedural justice, procedural fairness, problem-solving courts, specialized court programs
