Abstract

This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (qualitative). The objectives are as follows:This review will gather and synthesise the experiences of interventions for survivors of sexual abuse and violence, their families, as wellas the professionals who deliver them.Specifically, this review seeks to:
1. identify, appraise and synthesise qualitative studies exploring the experiences of child and adult survivors of sexual abuse and violence,and their caregivers, regarding psychosocial interventions aimed at supporting survivors and preventing negative health outcomes interms of benefits, risks/harms and barriers;
2. identify, appraise and synthesise qualitative studies exploring the experiences of professionals who deliver psychosocial interventionsfor sexual abuse and violence in terms of perceived benefits, risks/harms and barriers for survivors and their families/caregivers;
3. develop a conceptual understanding of how different factors influence uptake, dropout or completion, and outcomes from psychosocialinterventions for sexual abuse and violence;
4. develop understanding of how features and types of interventions respond to the needs of different user/survivor groups (e.g.age groups; types of abuse exposure; migrant populations) and contexts (healthcare/therapeutic settings; low- and middle-incomecountries (LMICs)); and
5. explore how the findings of this review can enhance our understanding of the findings from the linked and related reviews assessingthe effectiveness of interventions aimed at supporting survivors and preventing negative health outcomes.
