Abstract

This study is about the work of the social services and the assessment of the risk of continued gender-based violence. The purpose of the study is to investigate what is needed to carry out a risk assessment with high validation of continued gender-based violence within the Social Services. Based on the purpose of the study, four issues have been raised regarding what is needed to carry out a risk assessment with high validation, the use of method / tools, the underlying knowledge (education) and work experience and the professional's own confidence in his risk assessment.

The method used in this study is quantitative in the form of a survey study. In order to get answers to these questions, a survey study was conducted and sent out to professional socialworkers. The study has chosen to target practitioners who work with gender-based violence and who investigate the risk of continued violence. The questionnaire was sent to all 26 municipalities in Stockholm County and was also left open for the opportunity for other municipalities outside Stockholm County to respond. The survey's answers were then summarized using the SurveyMonkey program for best results.

The results of the survey have been analyzed based on the theory of street-level bureaucracy and ecological systems theory. The survey showed that the majority of administrators worked between 6-15 years in social work and 0-5 years in social services. 99% of the respondents completed the NCK web course on violence in close relation, which is considered relevant to their current target group. The majority of respondents use the standardized assessment method called FREDA. Knowingly, the minority of respondents had undergone some form of college education in violence in close relation. All respondents replied that they use some kind of tool to make a good assessment of the risk of violence in close relation and the majority believe that what is needed to carry out a good risk assessment is work experience, special knowledge in violence in close relation and an assessment instruments, in this case FREDA.

What the study discusses based on its conclusions are the most important results that are considered to answer the essay's questions. The study discusses the limitations, shortcomings and difficulties of the survey. The study was concluded with questions for further research.
