Problem-Solving Bench Book Forthcoming in Australia
Dr. Michael S. King is currently working on a problem solving bench book for judicial officers in Australia and New Zealand, upon grants from the AIJA and the LSB (Vic). A draft should be completed in the next few weeks. It will then be circulated
for comment within the judiciary and related bodies in these jurisdictions before a final version is completed. A chapter in the bench book is on substance abuse, theories of addiction, treatment alternatives and many of the matters you mention. The final version will be available for download from the Australasian Institute Judicial Administration (AIJA) website, http://www.aija.org.au/index.php.
