Improving responses to refugees with backgrounds of multiple trauma

Australian Domestic & Family Violence Clearing house

 

Recent research has demonstrated that refugee women seeking help for domestic violence in countries of resettlement, such as Australia, are likely to have experienced multiple incidents of trauma as a result of their exposure to war, loss, displacement and encampment (Pittaway 2004; Pittaway & Rees 2006; ees & Pease 2007; Zannettino 2012). Frequently these experiences involve sexual violence and abuse ccurring over an extended period of time and in a myriad of contexts (Heineman 2011; Leatherman 2011). Practitioners working with refugee women affected by domestic violence in countries of resettlement need to be aware of the likelihood of such histories. More specifically, they must be cognisant of how the mental and physical eff ects of refugees' pre-arrival experiences can impact on their wellbeing and opportunities for successful settlement in a new country. They must also consider how such experiences can both contribute to and compound current experiences of violence in their intimate relationships (Pittaway 2004; Rees 2004; Zannettino 2012).
