This concluding chapter reiterates and emphasises why it is important for service providers to learn more about IPSV and how exactly to respond differently. The authors focus on the secrecy and the entrenched community and practitioner 'fictions' that create obstacles for the victims seeking assistance. They recommend a more multi-disciplinary and nuanced response that needs to vary depending upon the particular concerns and barriers faced by different sub groups of IPSV survivors.
