The tension between profession and organization : A qualitative study of how social workers experience their work with women who suffer from domestic violence and abuse substances such as drugs or alcohol (English)
Abstract [en]

Previous researches show that women with substance abuse are more likely to be exposed to domestic violence and that they are having a hard time to get help and support from Social Services. Our study aims to understand how social workers experience both their professional role and organisation when working with women who suffers from domestic violence and abuse ubstances such as drugs and alcohol. This study is qualitative and was done with semi-structed interviews with eight professionals who work in various Social Services in the south of Sweden. The results show that among other things the organization’s economy together with lack of protective houses plays a big part in the professional’s work with these women. We also found that the structure of the Social Services’s organization and the way the professional relate to his work affect these women’s needs av help and support.
