Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att utifrån socialarbetares och kvinnors perspektiv belysa socialtjänstens arbete med hjälp och stöd till våldsutsatta kvinnor med missbruk. I uppsatsen har en kvalitativ metod använts för att genomföra fem intervjuer. Tre av respondenterna var socialarbetare och två respondenter var kvinnor med tidigare erfarenheter av våld och missbruk. Två teoretiska perspektiv, socialkonstruktivistisk utgångspunkt och feministisk teori, har använts för att tolka och analysera resultatet från intervjuerna. I resultatet framkommer att det är av stor vikt att synliggöra denna särskilt utsatta grupp och deras behov. Resultatet visar att socialarbetare upplever att det inte finns tillräcklig kunskap eller hjälp i form av strategier för att hjälpa dessa kvinnor. Det framkommer åsikter från kvinnorna att de upplevt bristfälligt stöd och bemötande från myndigheter samt omgivning. Det stöd som i dagsläget ges till dessa kvinnor har fokus på missbruk och saknar prioritet av våldsutsatthet och betonar individinriktat eget ansvar för situationen. 

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to, based on the social workers and women's perspective illustrate the work of the social service in state of help and support for the addicted women who have experienced violence. A qualitative method has been used to achieve five interviews and therefore the purpose of this study. Three of the respondents were social workers and two respondents were women who previous experienced violence and addiction. Two theoretical approaches have been used to interpret and analyze the results from the interviews, social construction and feministic theory. The results of the study show that it is crucial to create awareness to this particularly vulnerable group and their needs. The results also show that the social workers feel there is a lack of knowledge or help in form of strategies to help these women. It emerges opinions from the women’s perspective that show that they’ve experienced inadequate support and treatment by authorities and other people. The support as in the current situation is given to the women with focus on the addiction and with lack of priority for the experience of violence and it emphasizes individualized responsibility for the situation.
