Experiencing domestic abuse can have a detrimental effect on the mother-child relationship. Domestic Abuse Recovering Together (DART) is a ten-week programme which focuses on rebuilding the mother-child relationship after the abuse has ended and supporting other aspects of recovery. ‘A ten-week programme which focuses on rebuilding the mother-child relationship after the abuse has ended’ The evaluation of DART utilises a quasi-experimental, mixed methods design and this article focuses on the pre- and post-DART standardised measures obtained on mothers and children and practitioner interviews. Analyses identified significant positive changes in measures of participants’ wellbeing following DART. Results also indicated that mothers were more affectionate to their children and children were experiencing significantly fewer difficulties. Mothers, children and professionals who made referrals to DART rated the service highly and the majority of service users felt that it had helped their recovery. Qualitative interviews with ten DART practitioners identified barriers and facilitators which influenced outcome achievement. For example, joint mother/child sessions helped to improve their relationship, whilst contact with the perpetrator could limit the positive effects of the intervention. Such findings informed the development of a new domestic abuse service.
