Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to analyze narratives of violence and explore how this relates to one's own violence. By means of the theory of differential associations and social learning theory, the development of violent behavior was understood and interpreted. Through a hermeneutic approach, seven life stories from the Stockholm Life-Course Project, were interpreted, where child maltreatment and own use of violence had occurred. The main results showed that the individuals experienced that the childhood had characterized their lives and that they developed a behavior of violence. The violence has been interpreted for strategic purposes but also of pure instinct. The results were problematized with the previous research. The study's conclusion is that exposure to child maltreatment constitutes a risk factor for developing violent behavior. However, the relationship is complex and no causal statements can be made based on our research method and our sample.

Abstract [sv]

Vårt syfte med denna studie var att med utgångspunkt från narrativ analysmetod analysera berättelser om våldsutsatthet och dess relation till egen våldsutövning. Teorin om differentiella associationer och social inlärningsteori användes för att skapa förståelse för utvecklingen av ett våldsamt beteende. Med ett hermeneutiskt angreppssätt tolkades sju intervjuer från The Stockholm Life-Course Project. Studiens främsta resultat visade att individerna upplevt att barndomen präglat deras liv och att de anammat ett våldsbeteende. När de själva utövat våld beskrivs detta ha utförts strategiskt och målinriktat, men även instinktivt då våldet utförts på ren impuls. Tidigare forskning bidrog till att problematisera resultatet i förhållande till berättelser som strider mot ovanstående narrativ och de teoretiska resonemangen. Studiens slutsats är att utsatthet för våld under barndomen utgör en riskfaktor för att utveckla ett våldsamt beteende. Relationen är dock komplex och inga kausala uttalanden kan göras baserat på vår forskningsmetod och vårt urval.
