The current study examined the traumatic experiences among mothers of Palestinian prisoners. A representative purposive sampling design consisted of forty participants from Jerusalem suburbs, specifically at abu Dis and Ezaria, was used. Data was collected using a 20-item questionnaire developed by the research team. The findings demonstrate that traumatic experiences are prevalent among the mothers of Palestinian prisoners. Of the Palestinian mothers surveyed, 72.3% reported traumatic experiences. Current statistics revealed that number of household members and level of education were significant predictors for traumatic experiences among Palestinian prisoners' mothers. Mothers still carry greater part of the pain due to the absence of their detained sons.
