Violence and persons with disabilities : A study concerning the meanings of violence depending on actors involved, within group- or service homes (English)
Abstract [sv]

Genom semistrukturerade intervjuer med tre kvinnor arbetande som vårdpersonal på grupp- eller serviceboende för personer med funktionsnedsättning, undersöks utifrån ett konstruktivistiskt perspektiv dessas föreställningar kring våld kopplat till personer med funktionsnedsättning. Studien synliggör hur inblandade aktörers roller kan associeras med föreställningar som uttrycks kring ämnet samt till vad som ses som ”lämpligt” agerande. Det framkom att rollen hos den aktör som utförde en potentiellt våldsam handling var avgörande för hur händelsen betraktades samt hur detta tänktes hanteras. Aktörernas kön uttrycks ej inverka, dock fanns indikationer på vissa tänkta skillnader. Då intervjupersonerna resonerar kring ”lämpligt agerande” förhöll de sig dels till plikter men även en känsla av ”rätt” enligt vad vi tolkar som konsekvensetiskt/utilitaristiskt perspektiv. Då en kollega var inblandad blev lojalitet märkbart relevant. Makt beaktas genomgående och komplexiteten i begreppet våld och hur det kan förstås olika beroende på kontext, inblandade aktörer och perspektiv diskuteras.

Abstract [en]

Through semi-structured interviews with three women working as care personnel in group or service homes for persons with disabilities, perceptions regarding violence as linked to persons with disabilities is studied from a social-constructionist point of view. The study explores how the roles of actors involved can be associated with notions and interpretations expressed, and with what the interviewees regard as “appropriate” action to handle the situation. The role of the aggressor proved crucial. Gender of the actors was not expressed as important but indications existed pointing to perceived differences. When discussing appropriate action, the interviewees related to both a sense of “duty” and the “right” thing to do from a utilitarian perspective. When involving a colleague, loyalty became relevant. Throughout the study the dimension of power and the complexity of violence is considered and its different understandings depending on context, actors and perspective.
