"Daddy hits mummy" : A qualitative study of women's shelters work with children who have witnessed violence. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Våld mot kvinnor är ett globalt folkhälsoproblem och länge har kvinnan stått i fokus som enda offret i familjen, men nu vet man att även barn som bevittnat våldet påverkas negativt i hög grad. Varje år söker sig tusentals kvinnor och barn till landets kvinnojourer för att få stöd och skydd. Syftet med den här uppsatsen var att få kunskap om hur kvinnor som är engagerade i arbetet på kvinnojourer beskriver att de bemöter barn som bevittnat våld och hur de arbetar för att hjälpa dem i deras situation I studien användes en kvalitativ metod där fem enskilda intervjuer med jourkvinnor utförts. Det insamlade materialet har analyserats utifrån innehållsanalys och temat som växte fram ur analysen var ”Trygghet”. Resultatet har analyserats i förhållande till traumateori samt begreppet empati. I resultatet framkommer det att barn på kvinnojouren uppvisar symptom som kan jämföras med traumatisering och posttraumatisk stress till exempel aggressivitet, undvikande beteende och hyperaktivitet. Studien visar att jourkvinnorna bemöter barnen på kvinnojouren med ett empatiskt förhållningssätt, genom att vara lyhörda för barnens behov och lägga stor vikt vid att bygga upp tillit hos barnet. I mötet med barnet var leken en betydelsefull del.  I rollen som jourkvinna är trygghet centralt i arbetet med barn som bevittnat våld. Kunskap på kvinnojourer finns men de skulle vilja ha mer fortbildning. 

Abstract [en]

Violence against women is a global public health problem and for a long time the woman has been in the spotlight as the only victim in the family, but now we know that children who have witnessed violence are greatly affected. Each year, thousands of women and children are seeking women shelters for support and protection. The purpose of this paper was to obtain knowledge about how women who are engaged in work at women's shelters describe that they support children who have witnessed violence and how they work to help them in their situation. In this study, a qualitative method was used and five individuals that are involved with women shelters were interviewed. The material collected has been analyzed based on content analysis and the theme that emerged from the analysis was “Safety”. The theoretical perspective that has been used to analyze the outcome is trauma theory and the concept of empathy. The result shows that the children in the shelter are showing signs of symptoms that can be compared with trauma and post-traumatic stress for example, aggression, avoidance behavior and hyperactivity. The result of the study also shows that the women treat the children at the shelter with an empathetic approach. To do that they are responsive to children's needs and a strong emphasis is placed on building a bond of trust with the child. In their contact with the children, playing was an important part. Feeling secure was central in their work with children who have witnessed violence. The shelters have knowledge but they want more education.
