Abstract [en]

Previous research shows that women who are victims of intimate partner violence and also have asubstance abuse have difficulties getting access to services to aid with their experience of violence.This study has examined social workers experiences of working with women with these problems,what types of services are provided and how their service needs are assessed. The study has ahermeneutical approach and the data consists of interviews with nine social workers in lines ofwork that come into contact with women in the previously described client group. The data hasbeen analyzed using content analysis. The result of the study indicates that women who are victimsof intimate partner violence and also have a substance abuse do not get their needs provided forthrough the current services in the field of social work. These women are described as havingcomplex problems and are therefore in need of more and other services than those currentlyprovided. The result suggests that these women need long-lasting and coordinated services and thatthere is a need for a shelter where this group of client is welcome. To get there work is needed fromthe social services, in part by reaching out to these women and in part by providing services toalleviate the feeling of guilt and shame these women are experiencing. The result indicates that thesocial services are not good at identifying both sides of the multi problematic these women haveand therefore have difficulties offering services adapted to the needs of these women. Instead eitherside of the problem is prioritized regarding services in the line of social work. Continued work isneeded to give this client group a higher priority because they are discriminated against based ontheir gender.

Abstract [sv]

Tidigare forskning visar att våldsutsatta kvinnor med en missbruksproblematik har svårt att fåtillgång till insatser för sin våldsutsatthet. Denna studie har undersökt socialarbetares erfarenheterav att arbeta med kvinnor med denna problematik, vilka insatser som ges och hur deras insatsbehovbedöms. Studien har en hermeneutisk ansats och studiens datamaterial består av intervjuer med niosocialarbetare inom verksamheter som kommer i kontakt med kvinnor inom den ovan beskrivnaklientgruppen. Intervjumaterialet har analyserats med hjälp av innehållsanalys. Studiens resultatantyder att våldsutsatta kvinnor med ett missbruk inte får sina behov tillgodosedda genomnuvarande insatser inom socialtjänsten. Dessa kvinnor beskrivs ha en komplex problembild ochdärför behövs fler och andra insatser än vad den nuvarande insatsrepertoaren kan erbjuda. Resultatetpekar på att dessa kvinnor behöver långvariga och samordnade insatser samt att det finns behov avett eget skyddat boende där denna klientgrupp kan vistas. För att nå dit krävs ett arbete frånsocialtjänsten, dels med att nå ut till dessa kvinnor och dels med olika insatser för att minska denskuld och skam dessa kvinnor känner. Resultatet indikerar också att socialtjänsten är dålig på attidentifiera båda sidorna i dessa kvinnors multiproblematik och har därför svårigheter med atterbjuda insatser anpassade till dessa kvinnors behov. Istället prioriteras antingen den ena eller denandra delen i problemet när det gäller insatser i det sociala arbetet. Ett fortsatt arbete krävs med attge denna klientgrupp en högre prioritet då de diskrimineras utifrån sin könstillhörighet.
