Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to get a deeper understanding of staff who are exposed to threat and violence in the work with people with mental disabilities. Focus is aimed at the staff´s experience of that in their daily work can be exposed to threat and violence. The first question for the study is what definition the staff gives to threat and violence in the daily work with people with mental disabilities and the second one is what determines the decision in making/or not making a report in threat and violence in the daily work with people with mental disorders. To collect empirical data the study is based on seven individual semistructured interviews with staff working with people with mental disabilities. The theory used to analyse is the normalisationprocess. The analyse is based on the interview-participants views on how they define threat and violence, their view on the client and themselves and also reporting threat and violence. The result is that the staff is affected by different aspects and a conflict is made between context and individual. This conflict contributes to the decision in reporting and definition of threat and violence.
