Abstract [en]

The aim of the current study was to highlight the social service work with domestic violence against women. In this study, we examined whether there was a difference in the way the social service works and if their effort differ in terms of domestic violence. Moreover, this study investigated how social workers work to prevent future violence against victims also what method they use to find out the causes behind men’s violence against women.

A total of four administrative officers were interviewed from two different municipalities. All four officers were actively working with questions concerning domestic violence against women. The content analysis methodology was used as a basis for our questioner which contained twenty questions. This method was chosen because of violence is the basis of social service work.

In conclusion, social services in the two municipalities that were studied in this study offer abused women different types of contributions. The type of effort provided depends on women’s individual situations. There are however, no major differences between the ways social services are dealing with domestic violence compared with honor-related violence. In those cases that were received to the two social offices, the underlying causes of violence against women varied. This may possibly include alcohol-related violence and mental illness. Future actions concerns the need of social assistance to work more on developing new methods to mainly protect women from domestic violence also to provide information to women about the social service interventions.
