In this Introduction, I will briefly summarize Des Rosiers' Court Review article, entitled From Telling to Listening: A Therapeutic Analysis of the Role of Courts in Minority-Majority Conflicts, placing it in a framework that transcends minority-majority conflicts and encourages discussion regarding the use of therapeutic jurisprudence by appellate tribunals. My brief summary is followed by a series of comments that have the potential of launching a refreshing line of inquiry into the appellate process, opinion writing, and the formulation of legal doctrine.
