Abstract [sv]

Male violence against women in close relations has in recent years received increased attention, however, only identified as a problem in approximately 40 years. It is now a social problem that is constantly increasing, but the identification of the phenomenon has been possible thanks to the research on the subject. The purpose of this study is to, from a woman's own story, identify psychological processes in connection with the assault. The aim is also to confirm previous research on the phases of the abused go through until decampment and identify possible consequences of violence against women. I also aim to answer the question regarding the assistance of individuals in extreme situations while getting back to society. The empirical material was gathered through a qualitative interview and resulted in the identification of the different phases the woman experienced during maltreatment. The thematic approach on the material, made it possible for me to identify the psychological consequences of a woman's traumatic experience as depression, anxiety and post traumatic stress and the Women's Shelter lack of efforts to assist women with professional psychological help.
