    Våldsutsatta kvinnor drabbas av långsiktiga ekonomiska konsekvenser2013In: Socialmedicinsk Tidskrift, ISSN 0037-833X, Vol. 90, no 4, p. 604-612Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Utsatthet för våld kan medföra långvariga konsekvenser. Studien tar upp långsiktiga ekonomiska konsekvenser för våldsdrabbade kvinnor med fokus på behovet av försörjningsstöd. Den sammanfattar två registerstudier som undersökt den ekonomiska utvecklingen för 6085 kvinnor 18-64 år som utsatts för våld som krävt sjukhusvård. Gruppen jämförs med 55 016 kvinnor i befolkningen. Analyser görs med logistiska regressioner. Utsatthet för våld ökar risken för långvariga negativa ekonomiska konsekvenser både för kvinnor med och utan barn. Lågutbildade kvinnor löper störst risk att råka ut för våld men alla som drabbas löper en väsentligt förhöjd risk att behöva försörjningsstöd. Den förhöjda risken kvarstår upp till tio år efter vårdtillfället.

    Women experiencing severe violence in all social groups suffer long-term negative economic consequences2013In: Journal of Poverty and Social Justice, ISSN 1759-8273, E-ISSN 1759-8281, Vol. 21, no 1, p. 61-76Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examined long-term socio-economic patterns among women aged 18-64 who suffered violence leading to inpatient care. Using data from Swedish national registers for 1992-2005, 6,085 such cases were compared to a random population sample of 55,016 women. Women exposed to violence had less paid work, lower income and a higher risk of claiming means-tested income support. Exposure to violence resulted in long-term negative economic consequences for women with all levels of education. Violence against women is thus related to low income and social exclusion - both as cause and consequence.

    Från kamratförening till yrkesförening: ett sekel med Föreningen Social Omsorg2018 (ed. 1)Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Boken "Från kamratförening till yrkesförening : Ett sekel med Föreningen Social Omsorg" är en rapport som tar sin början med den utbildning som Svenska fattigvårdsförbundet startade 1908 för att komma till rätta med problemen inom fattigvården i Sverige. De personer som gått utbildningen, t.ex. ålderdomshemsföreståndare och barnhemsföreståndare, arbetade ofta ensamma och såg ett stort värde i att möta andra som också gått utbildningen och som till vardags brottades med liknande problem. Därför anordnades ett möte för dem 1920, och på mötet beslutades det att en kamratförening skulle bildas. Utgångspunkten i boken är föreningens protokoll och andra handlingar som finns bevarade. Men även annat material finns refererat, exempelvis från Svenska fattigvårdsförbundets och dess efterföljares tidskrift. Även om boken främst handlar om föreningen - hur den arbetat, hur den varit organiserad och vilka frågor som varit centrala - så ger den samtidigt en bild av socialpolitik och arbetsförhållanden inom 1900-talets äldreomsorg.

    “Well it is for their sake we are here”: meaningful work tasks from care workers' view2018In: Working with Older People, ISSN 1366-3666, Vol. 22, no 2, p. 111-120Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – Employees in elderly care have a high rate of sick leave. One explanation is that employees that experience a low level of meaning of work are at a higher risk for long-term sick leave. The paper aims to discuss these issues.

    Design/methodology/approach – This qualitative interview study aims to examine what employees in residential care facilities experience as the meaningful aspects of their work tasks. Interviews with 14 persons employed in residential care facilities were conducted.

    Findings – The findings show that meaningful work tasks are about organizing the work to make use of the creativity and knowledge of the staff in order to support relations with older people.

    Originality/value – The knowledge about what constitutes a healthy work environment is not as comprehensive as it is about what constitutes health risks. Furthermore, these issues have been considered by only a few qualitative studies about social care in the field of sick leave. Therefore, this qualitative interview study examines what employees in residential care facilities experience as meaningful aspects of their work tasks.

    Staying when everyone else flees – an interview study with experienced social workers on coping strategies and organizational conditions

    Earlier studies in the field have described a complicated situation with high turnover and recruitment problems within the Swedish social services. The aim of this study was to investigate and get an understanding of how social workers within child protective services cope with challenges in their work and what organizational factors at their place of work that affects their intention to stay. Six social workers with a minimum of three years of experience were interviewed. The empirical material was analysed using a hermeneutic approach with

    coping and sense of coherence as a theoretical ground. The most important factors for the social workers’ intention to stay were their own experience as a way to cope with the workload, support from their colleagues and from their superiors. The discussion highlights the importance of experience in coping with workload as well as for supporting newly educated social workers.

    ”Tiggeri” i svensk press: En kvalitativ innehållsanalys om hur media framställt tiggare i Sverige under 20142016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to examine how the Swedish press produced begging phenomenon in Sweden during the year of 2014. The used method was a qualitative content analysis using the theoretical perspectives, social constructionism and labeling theory. This study has covered 90 articles focused on begging phenomenon within the Swedish press.The main results in this study were that Swedish media often present the phenomenon of begging on the basis of ethnic group, the Roma. Due to a long history of discrimination they lack social and economic security both in Sweden and in the rest of the EU. The phenomenon of begging is presented as a result of organized crime and the given solution resolving begging is to ban it. Social knowledge about who the involved individuals are and why they beg is represented clearly in the press. We acknowledge that the results, based on theories and previous research, not always integrates and correspond with reality. The press often forgets to mention that this ethnic group has no safe and secure place to call "home".

    Health-related quality of life after general surgical intensive care2018In: Acta Anaesthesiologica Scandinavica, ISSN 0001-5172, E-ISSN 1399-6576, Vol. 62, no 8, p. 1112-1119Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Impaired mental and physical health are common complications after intensive care that could influence the patient's health-related quality of life (HRQoL). Earlier research has mainly focused on HRQoL in mixed surgical and medical ICU populations. This study aimed to describe and analyze factors associated with HROoL after discharge from a general surgical ICU.

    METHODS: A prospective cohort study was conducted in a general surgical ICU in Sweden between 2005 and 2012. Adult patients (≥18 years) with an ICU length of stay ≥96 hours were included. HRQoL was measured at 3, 6, and 12 months after discharge from the ICU using a questionnaire (SF-36). A linear mixed model was used to analyze changes over time and Wilcoxon Signed Rank Tests were used to compare the 12-months results to an age and gender matched reference population in Sweden. Linear regression analyses were performed to explore the impact on HRQoL from background variables.

    RESULTS: Of 447 patients eligible for the study, 276 patients (62%) answered SF-36 at least once at 3, 6 or 12 months after ICU care and were included in the study. HRQoL improved over time but was still significantly lower at 12 months compared to the reference population. Female gender, age <75 years, living single, and ICU-stay of more than 14 days were associated with lower HRQoL.

    CONCLUSION: General surgical ICU patients reports low HRQoL 1 year after ICU stay. The impaired HRQoL could be a long-lasting problem with major consequences for the individual, family, and society.

    Therapists' Narratives of Therapeutic Relationships in the Treatment of Drug-Dependent Patients2013In: Substance Use & Misuse, ISSN 1082-6084, E-ISSN 1532-2491, Vol. 48, no 13, p. 1416-1433Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article explores and analyzes therapists' narratives, using selected stories, and their strategies for achieving a positive therapeutic relationship and a therapeutic alliance with their patients as a critical dimension to enable effective treatment with patients manifesting dependency problems. Although the therapists are applying different treatment and dependency theories and methods they all emphasize the importance of the therapeutic alliance in order to be successful in the treatment process.

    Perspectives on treatment, alliance and narratives concerning substance use-related dependency2013In: Substance Use & Misuse, ISSN 1082-6084, E-ISSN 1532-2491, Vol. 48, no 13, p. 1386-1403Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article considers different perspectives on the treatment of substance use-related dependency, focusing on the importance of a therapeutic relationship, working alliance, counseling, and the use of narrative methods. The article also discusses some unresolved critical issues concerning the possibilities and limitations of acquiring necessary knowledge about substance use-related dependency when using narrative research methods. The main conclusion is that the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client is of crucial importance for a positive outcome of treatment and that narrative methods provide a detailed empirical database for analyses of substance use-related dependency.

    Missbruksvård genom hemtjänst: Hemtjänstpersonalens upplevelse av att kunna stödja äldre med alkoholmissbruk2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studiens syfte var att undersöka vilka hinder och möjligheter hemtjänstpersonalen beskriver avseende att arbeta med missbruksbehandling utifrån sin yrkesroll i det dagliga klientarbetet. Arbetet hade en kvalitativ ansats med fem semistrukturerade intervjuer. För att analysera resultaten användes rollteori och ålderism. Studiens resultat visade att hindren består av kunskapsbrist hos personalen, klientens självbestämmande, tillåtande attityder kring äldre och alkohol samt resursbrist inom äldreomsorgen. Möjligheterna består av närheten till klienten, riktlinjer för inköp av alkohol och samverkan med anhöriga. Därutöver beskriver personalen ett stort engagemang där de är beredda att utgöra ett stöd i händelse av att en klient önskar hjälp för sitt missbruk

    Unaccompanied Refugee youth and Social Interactions: Perceptions and experiences of social interaction with native-born2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study has been to explore how unaccompanied refugee youth create and consider their social interaction in their new country of residence, the study also explore how the participants perceived social interaction in relation to other areas of life and which mechanism they considered to be important for a positive social interactions.

    The empirical material was collected through four semi-structured interviews with unaccompanied refugee youths in Sweden.

    The analysis is based on Social Capital theory by Pierre Bourdieu. Bourdieu explain the term social capital to understand how individuals can ensure benefits or be inhabited through participation in certain social interactions. 

    The key results of this study show that the participants view their social interaction to be an important aspect of integration into the Swedish society, mainly because it provides them with the opportunity to learn the Swedish language faster. For this reason, the participants preferred to socialize with natives rather than with their own ethnic group.

    Key result of this study is that the refugee youth perceived social interaction with native-born to be of greater importance, than with co-ethnic. Co-ethnic group means to belong to same ethnic groups as itself. The reasons for this were that they had fled their home countries due to persecution as a result of sexual orientation, and of social unacceptence of their lifestyles.

    Another reason was they perceived interaction with native-born to better enhance possibilities of integration to host society.

    Domstic Violence against Children: views from social work2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Domestic violence against children is well known on the social problem aspect, and Sweden has become the first country clarifying its stance on physical punishment and child abuse since established “anti-spanking” law in 1979. The purpose of this research was to investigate how Swedish social workers deal with the issue about domestic violence against children. The research was developed with hermeneutics approach and ecological systems theory, and carried out by four respondents from Social Services Gävle. With the answers claimed by the respondents, constitute the results and conclusions, that is all kinds of tackling methods about child abuse should be regulated by laws, and cooperate with police or citizens comprehensively, especially in the period of investigation.  This paper might be a general pattern, but we do hope it could make people rethinking about child abuse issues, that probably may reduce a little bit pressure to children in the future.

    Exploring Drug Practitioners' Perspectives of Roles within a UK and Swedish Drug Treatment Service2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This research study aims to draw comparisons on similarities and differences in how drug treatment practitioners perceive and conduct their therapeutic roles working in UK and Swedish drug treatment services. Previous research shows that global ideologies influence national policies that then influence drug treatment practitioners in how they conduct their work. To further explore the practitioners’ perspectives, four semi- structured interviews were conducted with practitioners in both a Swedish and UK Drug Service. The interviews were analyzed through thematic analysis and three themes and three sub-themes emerged from the statements of the practitioners and were then further analysed to explore similarities and differences. The results show that there were similarities in that all practitioners emphasized the importance of creating a therapeutic alliance with the service users, they all had some form of internal and external collaboration and they all used evidence based methods. The same areas showed differences when explored in greater detail. The theoretical framework of Social Constructionism and Labelling Theory was used to explore the results.

    Samordnad individuell plan (SIP).: En kvalitativ studie på hur samordnad individuell plan förändrat samverkan mellan socialtjänst och psykiatri.2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Då samordnad individuell plan infördes i lagstiftningen 1 januari 2010 var syftet att personer med behov av insatser från fler organisationer än en skulle erbjudas en samordnad individuell plan för att tydliggöra de olika organisationernas ansvar, och förbättra för den enskilde klienten. Syftet med vår studie var att undersöka hur samordnad individuell plan förändrat samverkan mellan kommun och landsting när det handlar om personer med dubbeldiagnos. Studien har bedrivits kvalitativt med en deduktiv strategi, där fyra yrkesverksamma inom en och samma stad har intervjuats. De teorier som användes var case managment samt systemteori. Våra slutsatser är att tillvägagångssättet bör förändras för att undvika extra arbete, det behövs ytterligare riktlinjer för hur samverkan skall bedrivas innan ett gott resultat av lagändringen kan ses, båda organisationerna lägger stor vikt vid klientens behov, klienten blir mer delaktig när SIP används samt att organisationerna behöver mer kunskap om varandras arbetsområden.

    Att växa upp med alkoholmissbrukande föräldrar: En granskning av självbiografier av vuxna barn till missbrukare2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studiens syfte var att få en ökad förståelse och djupare inblick i numera vuxna barns upplevelser av att växa upp med en alkoholmissbrukande förälder. De frågeställningar som besvarades var "Hur beskrivs uppväxten för barn till missbrukande föräldrar från barnets perspektiv i sex olika självbiografier? " och "Vilka psykosociala konsekvenser uppger författarna till sex självbiografier att de drabbats av på grund av att de växt upp med en alkoholmissbrukande förälder?". Det var en kvalitativ litteraturstudie som baserades på sex olika självbiografier. Sammantaget konstaterades att samtliga författare till självbiografierna har påverkats negativt av förälderns missbruk. Hos samtliga författare påträffades en negativ självbild vilket utifrån anknytningsteorin förklaras av den otrygga/ambivalenta anknytningsrelationen till den missbrukande föräldern. Utifrån kognitiv teori är självbilden ett resultat av inlärning. Resultatet i studien överensstämmer med vad som framkommer i tidigare forskning.

    Asperger syndrom: I ett maktperspektiv2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna uppsats är att genom en textanalys, granska makt- och genusaspekten i Christopher Gillbergs senare forskning gällande Asperger syndrom och högfungerande autism. Den teoretiska utgångspunkten är genusteorin och makt, med frågeställningarna; Hur visar sig makten i ett genusperspektiv? Hur visar sig makten i valet av de diagnostiseringskriterier som forskaren väljer att använda? Analysen visar att av de barn som blir diagnostiserade med Asperger syndrom är pojkarna fler till antalet än flickorna. Resultaten som belyser genusaspekten visar att flickor inte har samma symtom som pojkar, vilket kan leda till att flickorna inte blir diagnostiserade. En diagnos skapar bättre förutsättningar till att få hjälp från samhället. Möjligheten till att använda olika diagnostiseringskriterier leder till att forskarna har makt att i vissa fall välja om och vilken diagnos som ska ges. Cederlund med flera (2008) presenterar Gillberg och Gillbergs diagnostiseringskriterier som de som ligger närmast Hans Aspergers egen beskrivning av syndromet från år 1944. Många frågor har uppkommit under analysprocessens gång. En av dessa, som vi anser som den viktigaste, är den att flickors symtom anges som olika pojkars symtom.

    A qualitative study on the experiences of Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) from the perspective of male victims2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this qualitative research was to get a deeper understanding of male victim’s experiences when exposed to Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) by a female partner. Two men who had been exposed to IPV were interviewed through email correspondence regarding their experiences. To provide a general understanding of the specific difficulties male victims may face from a Western perspective, we have over email and telephone also interviewed three people who work with the issue. The results of this study were analyzed using theories of social psychology and hegemonic masculinity theory. What was stressed throughout the interviews was the importance of abused men to get recognition for being victims of IPV. Our findings showed that stereotypical perceptions of masculinity may affect male victims of IPV in many ways, such as affecting the self-image and hindering help-seeking as well as receiving the proper help services.

    Att förebygga hot och våld i svenska statliga myndigheter: en jämförelse mellan två perspektiv på säkerhetsarbete2019In: / [ed] Nordisk samarbejds for kriminologi, 2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Våld och hot i arbetslivet är inte enbart ett arbetsmiljöproblem utan även ett demokratiproblem. Hantering av arbetsrelaterat våld och hot regleras i arbetsmiljölagen och Arbetsmiljöverkets föreskrifter. Arbetsgivaren är ansvarig för det förebyggande arbetet som ska utföras i samarbete med skyddsombud och medarbetare. En utgångspunkt i arbetsmiljölagen är att kartlägga de risker som finns i verksamheten. Betoningen av den stabila, formella sidan av arbetsmiljöarbete sker dock ofta på bekostnad av en utveckling i form av arbetstagarmedverkan. Styrning som inte tar kontextuell hänsyn till arbetstagare eller klienter medför negativa konsekvenser. Strategier som inte harmonierar med det faktiska arbetet och regler som hämmar kreativitet och anpassning innebär en begränsning - inte bara för de scenarion vi i förebyggande syfte kan föreställa oss, utan också för att vi berövas en källa till tillit, diversitet och innovation. Den här artikeln beskriver hur två perspektiv hämtade från fältet ”resilience engineering” kan komplettera kriminologin för att användas för att analysera hur arbetsmiljölagen implementeras på olika arbetsplatser i syfte för att förebygga hot och våld.

    Preventing Violence at Work: Descriptions of Safety Measures from Swedish Trade Union Journals 1978-20042010In: 67th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Criminology: Crime and Social Institutions, 2010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The increased focus on the crime victim in the political sphere, has made it possible to develop an individualized criminal policy, where responsibility is emphasized. The main purpose of this study is to examine whether perceptions of interventions aimed at violence in the workplace have changed since the 1970s as portrayed by Swedish trade union journals. The occupational health perspective is the most common. Here threats and violence are seen as something preventable, and are mainly dealt with within the workplace. In the beginning of the study period, structural factors are seen as the dominating explanation for workplace violence and methods of intervention take this perspective. The crime perspective rises in the 1990s – even though the “perpetrator” now can be non-traditional (such as nurses or the elderly). It is characterized by individualization and an increasing focus on the crime victim. Within this perspective, the method of intervention becomes the control- and justice functions of larger society. Interestingly, organizational violence (corporate neglect) emerges as a new form of violence that challenges individualization as the major explanation to this development. The result shows search for accountability as a salient factor for understanding the development towards an increasing use of penal sanctions.

    Using resilience engineering to manage school violence2018In: The Stockholm Criminology Symposium: Program & Abstracts, Stockholm: The Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention (Brå) , 2018, p. 172-172Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Safety has never been as bureaucratized as it is today. Over the past two decades we have seen the blooming of safety rules and legislation, and schools do not follow short. But at the same time, since the Columbine High School massacre set off a nationwide moral panic in 1999, there have been ten school shootings in which four or more people were killed. Including the death or suicide of the perpetrators, these mass shootings have resulted in 122 fatalities. In order to prevent school violence, several safety measures have been created. However, school violence has not disappeared and ranges from severe and lethal incidents such as the events this year in Florida, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School to more lenient but still unwanted forms making everyday school life difficult for students and staff members alike. This project discusses the insights from the so-called resilience engineering school, and apply these understandings to how school violence is managed. The theory suggests that remarkable safety performance on minor incidents tends to increase the risk of events of larger magnitude. By eradicating the minor events through tightening safety protocols, the possibility to learn from these events is lost, together with the full potential of human resourcefulness that could be harnessed towards creating safety success. Thus, safety research has shown that the link between minor and major accidents is not always there. It questions the “theory” of broken windows, which seems to be the general idea behind many school violence prevention approaches, that is, by controlling every minor occurrence of school violence, more severe school violence could be prevented.

    Information och stöd till kvinnor med lindrig utvecklingsstörning före, under och efter graviditet i Bollnäs kommun.2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie var att utifrån en fiktiv fallbeskrivning undersöka vilken information och vilket stöd ensamlevande kvinnor som har en lindrig utvecklingsstörning får före, under och efter en graviditet i Bollnäs kommun. Vi intervjuade fyra olika verksamheter som kommer i kontakt med dessa kvinnor och vi använde oss av en halvstrukturerad kvalitativ intervjuform. Resultatet av studien visade att den förberedande och förebyggande informationen till kvinnor med lindrig utvecklingsstörning som ännu inte blivit gravida är knapphändiga hos alla de intervjuade verksamheterna. Under graviditet erbjuder ett par av verksamheterna kvinnorna stöd i form av samtal och praktisk föräldrautbildning. När barnet är fött finns till exempel olika typer av stödinsatser som beviljas av Socialtjänsten och stödet skräddarsys efter behov och problematik. Ett av de viktigaste stöden Socialtjänsten erbjuder är vistelse på HVB-hem. Resultatet i studien analyserades utifrån ett systemteoretiskt perspektiv.

    Left-behind Children in China: A qualitative study about the experience of left-behind children concerning their childhood2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The overall aim of the thesis is to explore the negative life experience of left-behind children in a dynamic and integrated perspective taking left-behind children, their guardians, parents, school and other social communities into consideration. It explores the current situation of some left-behind children in China, and discusses the causes and negative effects on children‟s comprehensive development. A qualitative research method has been used because of the in-depth outcome accessible through face-to-face interview. Three left-behind children in different family compositions and one teacher were interviewed. The outcome of this study is discussed in multiple dimensions to explore consequences of left-behind children in China. The results suggest that parents’ migration can lead to more serious problems for the children than expected. The management of left-behind children requires concerted efforts from various social systems, not only parents, schools, children welfare center, and the whole nation, otherwise it would worsen deteriorated social issues.

    Det goda åldrandet: En kvalitativ studie av seniorer i den tredje åldern2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien var att öka kunskapen och förståelsen för äldres sociala behov i den tredje åldern för de som besöker träffpunktsverksamheten. För att genomföra studien har en kvalitativ intervjumetod används med fyra seniorer samt två träffpunktsledare. Detta för att få bådas perspektiv på vad ett gott åldrande innebär, men fokus har legat på seniorerna. Studien utgick ifrån två teorier, den sociala nätverksteorin och aktivitetsteorin. Dessa två är huvudteorier. I förhållande till dessa har gerotranscendensteorin används då den motsäger vad de två ovannämnda teorierna pekar på. Studiens empiriska data har analyserats efter den hermeneutiska cirkeln. Resultatet av studien visade att ett aktivt liv är av stor vikt för seniorerna som besöker träffpunktsverksamheten. Studien visade även att träffpunktsledarnas engagemang och motivation bidrar till att seniorerna upplever att de har ett inflytande i träffpunktsverksamheten. Seniorerna menade att känslan av delaktighet bottnar i den goda relation som de har till träffpunktsledaren.

    Titel:” To Save a Perpetrator” 

    An interview study about domestic violence and the treatment of the perpetrator

    The purpose of this study was to investigate the treatments available to perpetrators of domestic violence. The study is based on qualitative interviews with four people who all work with perpetrators of domestic violence in some way. The result has been analyzed with the help of attachment theory, behaviorism, violence - dominance and masculinity. The results show that there are various forms of treatment for the perpetrators. According to the interviewees there is no follow-up on whether the efforts help. The interviewees also described that these treatments are all individually adapted to the perpetrator's needs and that there is a resistance among the perpetrators to be included in group treatments. In addition, the treatments were described as often related to volunteerism under some constraint. The lack of attachment and the complexity of the treatment are discussed.
