Notes:  This practice monograph brings together five contributions from writers who are recognised for their expertise and experience working with refugees who have histories of trauma, including torture, sexual violence and domestic and family violence. Each contributor offers valuable insight into the enhancement of practice across work with refugee women who experience domestic and family violence.

Collectively, the contributions underline the importance of cross-sectoral collaboration and of the need for multi-agency responses. As with all areas of domestic and family violence work, the development of appropriate responses to the needs of women who have multiple experiences of trauma is unlikely without agencies from settlement services, torture and trauma services, sexual violence and domestic and family violence services working together, and without input from women themselves.
