Mothers with children born of sexual violence often have complex needs that are seldom adequately addressed in social care settings. The authors’ objective was to investigate the current care provisions for these mothers and children, and how these might be enhanced in the future. Twenty-one experts were asked about their current approaches and difficulties in treating this population and to suggest recommendations for improving care. The same group was asked to comment on the relevance and feasibility of implementing suggested options. The authors suggest that a holistic and community embedded approach that can be applied across settings will be most beneficial.
