Shirley Julich

Dr. Shirley Jülich is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Health and Social Services, Massey University, Albany. Her PhD investigated the complex relationship between the criminal justice system, restorative justice, and child sexual abuse from the perspective of adult survivors of child sexual abuse. She found that survivors’ reluctance to report the sexual violence they were subjected to in childhood persisted decades after the abuse stopped. She concluded that survivors were exposed to the four pre-cursors of Stockholm syndrome. Jülich is a founding member of Project Restore, a programme that aims to address sexual violence by using restorative justice processes.
