This chapter contributes to the emerging field of interprofessional ethics by exploring interprofessional moral issues involved in a cross-cultural trauma recovery project set within the occupied Palestinian territories. The National Child Traumatic Stress Network framework for assessing the cultural sensitivity of recovery programmes is adapted to explore an integrated understanding of the interactions between interprofessional and cross-cultural challenges. The framework includes moral principles, social history, cultural beliefs about trauma, symptom expression and trauma recovery, language and interpretation, and personal and organisational factors. The project highlights the centrality of seeing the world through the eyes of the other, principled individual and collaborative action and long standing relationships of trust in overcoming the morass of potential interprofessional cross-cultural barriers. Recommendations are made for future research in interprofessional cross-cultural ethical programme implementation and evaluation.
