Julie has mediated in organizations, workplaces and for the courts for 25 years and consulted regularly on conflict resolution interventions, training, program evaluation and systems design for a range of public and private sector clients. She has provided conflict intervention training for legal practitioners, law students, civil servants, union and management groups, band council members, legal aid workers and health care professionals.
