Abstract Nonoffending mothers are crucial players in the intervention response to disclosures of sexual assault. This article will outline the experiences of three such women from the point of disclosure of abuse of their children, including the child protection agency response. It is clear that coping with the ramifications of sexual assault disclosure is a harrowing time for women, during which they may question themselves as women, wives, and mothers. The implications for service providers are outlined, with suggestions for helpful ways to proceed with intervention.
