Abstract [en]

Background: Intimate partner violence is a public health issue that causes suffering for victims, abusers and children. Interventions have been made to prevent and treat the problem but the evaluation of them are often insufficient. The clinic for intimate partner violence in Uppsala (MVU) offers abusers treatment to stop using domestic violence.

Aim: To produce a general evaluation of MVU’s treatment for aggression- and violence problematics in intimate relationships by studying participating men’s experiences of the treatment.

Method: A qualitative interview study was used. By using a retrospective consecutive sample 11 men were recruited to individual semi structured interviews. Data was analyzed by thematic analysis. The ecological model was used as a theoretic perspective.

Result: The study showed that the informants had positive experiences of the arrangement of the treatment and the content was educative even though somewhat demanding. The therapists were considered to be competent and had a way of working that was suitable for the purpose of the treatment. Those who had been in group therapy found help and support from the group and several men missed the group when the treatment was finished. After the treatment the informants had come to realize that they had a violence issue that they were responsible of. They had learned to control their temper in a better way and had become better at communicating. They also experienced health improvements.

Conclusion: Men have a predominately positive experience of the treatment at MVU. The treatment was in some aspects considered mentally challenging but overall the men experienced better health after the treatment compared to before.

Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Våld i nära relationer är ett folkhälsoproblem som orsakar lidande för offer, utövare och eventuella barn. Insatser har utformats för att förebygga och behandla problemet men ofta är utvärderingen av dem bristfällig. Mottagningen mot våld i nära relationer i Uppsala (MVU) erbjuder våldsutövare behandling för att sluta bruka våld i nära relationer.

Syfte: Att göra en generell utvärdering av MVU:s behandling mot aggressions- och våldsproblematik i nära relationer genom att studera deltagande mäns upplevelser av behandlingen.

Metod: En kvalitativ intervjustudie användes. Genom ett retrospektivt konsekutivt urval rekryterades 11 män till individuella semistrukturerade intervjuer. Data analyserades med tematisk analys. Den ekologiska modellen tillämpades som teoretiskt perspektiv.

Resultat: Studien visade att informanterna upplevde behandlingens upplägg som bra och innehållet lärorikt om än något krävande. Terapeuterna upplevdes vara kompetenta och arbeta på ett sätt lämpligt för behandlingens syfte. De som hade gått i gruppbehandling fann hjälp och stöd i gruppen och flera sakande gruppen efter avslutad behandling. Efter behandlingen hade informanterna kommit till insikt om att de hade ett våldsproblem som de själva var ansvariga över. De hade lärt sig att hantera sitt humör på ett bättre sätt och blivit bättre på att kommunicera. De upplevde även hälsoförbättringar.

Slutsats: Män har en övervägande positiv upplevelse av MVU:s behandling. Behandlingen upplevdes i en del avseenden som psykiskt krävande men efter behandlingen mådde männen överlag bättre än före behandlingen.
