This website is the initiative of the International Therapeutic Jurisprudence in the Mainstream project. The project seeks to promote the use of Therapeutic Jurisprudence (TJ) approaches in mainstream legal settings through a variety of activities including this blog!
This project is driven by an exceptionally talented Advisory Group spanning 18 countries many of whom have been at the forefront of TJ innovations in courts and tribunals for many years. The project is coordinated by a small Committee – Pauline Spencer (Melbourne, Australia), David Wexler (Puerto Rico) & Mike Jones (Arizona).
The project activities include:
- Linking the latest research and resources with the people who are doing this work “on the ground” in courts and tribunals – judges, lawyers, prosecutors, managers, staff and court support workers.
- Encouraging and sharing TJ scholarship among academic and students in law and other disciplines.
- Linking people with expertise in this area with others who want to explore how TJ can make their courts and tribunals more effective.
