The importance of a support that is helpful and not harmful : A narrative study regarding the importance of support to women subjected to domestic violence (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att, utifrån kvalitativa intervjuer, studera hur kvinnor, som utsatts för våld i nära relation, upplevde stödet som de fick då de sökte hjälp. Detta gjordes utifrån en narrativ ansats med våldets normaliseringsprocess som teoretisk tolkningsmodell. Utifrån resultatet konstaterades att merparten av intervjupersonerna inte var tillfredsställda med stödet de tillhandahölls. Detta framkom genom att de gav uttryck för att ha bemötts med misstro och oförståelse för relationsvåldets komplexitet. Oavsett hur intervjupersonerna upplevde stödet, framställdes det dock av alla som oerhört viktigt, dels för att orka med uppbrottsprocessen som till exempel kunde innebära vårdnadstvister och polisutredningar, dels för att komma vidare och hitta sig själv igen när allt praktiskt var klart. Genom studien framkom att det finns ett behov av att synliggöra relationsvåldets omfattning samt sprida kunskap gällande dess komplexitet, då det skulle kunna bidra till ett bättre stöd till våldsutsatta kvinnor.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to, by qualitative interviews, examine how women subjected to domestic violence experienced the support they were given when they reached for help. This was examined through a narrative view, with the “process of normalisation of violence” as a theoretical perspective. The results of the study showed that the majority of the interviewed women were unsatisfied with the support they received. This emerged through their expressions of how they perceived a response characterised by mistrust and misunderstanding regarding the complexity of domestic violence. Regardless of how the interviewed women perceived the help, they all expressed the importance of support to endure the different processes that a break up could entail and to be able to move on by finding their identity again. The study found that there is a need to visualise the extent of domestic violence and broaden knowledge about its complexity, as it could contribute to better support for women subjected to domestic violence.
