Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka hur kvinnor utsatta för våld i nära relation upplever omgivningens reaktioner på våldet samt vilken betydelse det sociala nätverket haft för våldets utveckling. Studien baseras på fem semistrukturerade djupintervjuer med kvinnor som har erfarenhet av våld i nära relation. Resultaten, som analyserades med narrativ analysmetod och tolkades utifrån symbolisk interaktionism och uppbrottsprocessmodellen, visar att kvinnorna berättat om våldet för familjemedlemmar, vänner, arbetskamrater samt formella kontakter såsom polis, oftast i anslutning till en allvarlig våldshändelse. I merparten av fallen upplevde kvinnorna att de blivit bemötta med stöttande och hjälpande reaktioner som också bidragit till att kvinnan lyckats bryta upp från den våldsutsatta relationen. Några av kvinnorna upplevde dock bemötande av tystnad eller avståndstagande; i dessa situationer har ett absolut uppbrott inte ägt rum. Sammantaget tycks alltså reaktioner och stöd från den sociala omgivningen ha stor, och ibland avgörande, betydelse för om våldet fortsätter eller ej. 

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine if and how victims of domestic violence disclose their experiences to their social network, how the social network responds to the violence and the significance of the network responses relative to the evolvement of the violence. The study is based on five semi-structured interviews with women who have been exposed to different forms of domestic violence. The results, which were analysed using a narrative analysis and interpreted by symbolic interactionism and the theory of the leaving process, shows that women disclose their experiences about domestic violence to both informal and formal contacts. Disclosure often happened in the aftermath of a serious violent incident. In the majority of cases, women experienced supportive reactions that also contributed to the final break up from their relationships. Some of the women, however, experience negative attitudes and rejection, in these situations an absolute break-up was not completed.
