Title: Double exposed - A qualitative study of professional’s opinion about effort and needs of effort for abused women with substance abuse in Kalmar.
Supervisor: Svante Forsberg
Assessor: Ulf Drugge
Women with substance abuse are more likely to be exposed to violence. Despite this, they are having a hard time to get help and support from social service. The purpose of this study is to analyze how professionals express their experience about efforts and needs of efforts for abused women with substance abuse problems.
1. How do professional´s in Kalmar think about the efforts for abused women with substance abuse problems?
2. How do professional´s in Kalmar think about the needs of efforts for abused women with substance abuse problems?
3. How could the preventive work be done?
This study is qualitative and was done with four semi-structed interviews with four professionals who work in various social services in Kalmar. The results show that two of these services offer support for victims of violence and two of them offer help for substance abuse problems. I found that the efforts are good but there is also a considerable lack of effort, especially when it comes to accommodation for these women. There is nowhere for these women to go if there would be in urgent need of help.
The results were analyzed using theories as normalization processes and labeling theory and on the basis of reality, strategy and the ideal.
