Social services work with domestic violence; a gender study concerning social workers in Kronobergs county. (English)
This study is about social workers work with domestic violence. The aim of this study was to describe social workers work with domestic violence and to understand, from a gender perspective, differences in how social workers work with men exposed to violence respectively women exposed to violence. We have used a qualitative vignette study with eight social workers that work with, but not exclusively with, domestic violence. Four of them got a vignette with a case where a man was exposed to violence and four of them got a vignette with a case where a woman was exposed to violence. The only difference between the two vignettes was the sex of the person exposed to violence. Then we compared the answers we got from interviewees that got the case where a man was exposed to violence with the answers we got from the interviewees that got the case where a woman was exposed to violence in order to find differences in the answers. The main conclusions of this study was that the differences we found in the interviewees work with domestic violence, depending on the gender of the person exposed to violence, to a large extent can be understood through gender theory.
