Australian Social Work | Published : 1992


Mothers of sexually abused children frequently report difficulties sustaining a stance of belief, protection and support for their victimised children. Some of the ingredients of the mother's complex struggle, and particularly the relationship between crisis and the attainment and maintenance of a stance of belief, are outlined in this article. The implications for practitioners working with mothers are discussed. © 1992, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. All rights reserved.
