Abstract [en]

 Purpose: The aim of the study is to illuminate what motivates men choosing treatment.

Questions: What have influenced the men in their choice? How does these men see their responsibility in relation to motivation for choosing treatment? Witch possibilities respectively difficulties do men see in relationship to motivation?

Method:  Flexible design; The study is based on narrative interviews with abusive men and studies of documents and statistics.

Conclusion: The central findings of the study was that the man needed to have a wake up call and that he could se his own responsibility. If the man didn’t se his responsibility they said that there was no point in going to treatment. The road to treatment could be different among the men in the study but their partner was mentioned in every story. Empathy for the partner and children could motivate them and the risk of losing their partner. A side of this there was several things that made it easier and that could be information about treatment, support, successful models, a feeling of being needed from other men in the same situation and that there wasn’t to many practical obstacles in the way whether it was geographical or lack of time. The fact that they weren’t judged made it easier to make the step closer to treatment and also to help other men. A combination of internal and external motivation was seen in the stories told by the men them self. A balance between possible profit and possible damages were either couldn’t be excluded was a necessity. Fear was a driving force behind motivation as fear was a driving force behind the violence in first place.
