Abstract [en]

The aim of this study has been to describe and clarify the phenomenon violence from patients within neuropsychiatric institutions, as experienced by staff members. The study has adopted an actor perspective and phenomenology as a philosophic and theoretical framework. The method used for data collection and analysis has also been influenced by phenomenology. Data consisted of five semi-structured interviews of a descriptive nature, and the goal of the analysis has been to articulate the general structure of the phenomenon. The results showed that the violence from patients is characterized by a professional commitment which includes always staying ahead and being able to help, protect and express a high level of emotional self-control. The knowledge needed to attain this professional manner of appearance is obtained through one’s lived body by the means of experience. The violence is justifiably associated with being a frequent event, linked to patients’ problematic behavior brought on by their neuropsychiatric diagnosis as a natural part of the occupation. The violence is both a private and a shared undertaking which demands individual responsibility and persuasion of one’s own capability along with an expressed trust and support from close friends, family and co-workers. The violence is lastly experienced as an apparent ambiguity. It is both physically and emotionally demanding, but at the same time also a positive challenge.
