Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to examine which support the communities in Kalmar have to offer children who have witnessed domestic violence. The study also includes how social services justify this actions based on the childs needs. The study includes six respondents; four socialworkers, one head of unit at “Alternativ till våld” and one manager at “Barnahuset” in Kalmar. 

The method used in this study is a qualitative research approach with semi-structured interviews.


The study concludes that children who have witnessed domestic violence seldom are known by social services, but when a child is recognized the social service use “Alternativ Till Våld” or a general support. It also reveals that those children often have a lower priority when weighed against children who has been abused.
