    Abstract [en]

    Violence is a common problem in society worldwide, and recent research has shown links to various signs of ill-health among victims. In a Swedish population based study, 46 per cent of women and 38 per cent of men had, at some point, been subjected to severe sexual, physical or emotional violence. The respondents were also asked about their present health. The study showed a significant over-representation of respondents subjected to serious violence in all ill-health indicators (PTSD, depression, psychosomatic symptoms, self-harm behaviour, risky alcohol intake, low self-rated physical health and heart attacks in the older age group). Several other Swedish studies have addressed abuse and future health. In a study among young people attending youth clinics the last year prevalence of sexual, physical and emotional violence was high, as expected. Young women were to a higher extent than young men exposed to sexual (14 and 4 per cent, respectively) and emotional violence (33 and 18 per cent respectively) and young men more to physical violence than young women (27 and 18 per cent respectively). Those who had been exposed to more than two types of violence were significantly more likely to resort to self-harm behaviour and suicide ideation and rated their psychological wellbeing lower than others. In one study the violence victimization and self-reported physical and mental ill-health among young women belonging to a sexual minority and heterosexual young women was assessed. Being subjected to two or more types of violence was significantly more frequent among the minority women compared to heterosexual women. However all victimized women had significantly higher risk for ill-health in all outcomes (PTSD, sleeping difficulties, and recurrent bowel problems). The impact of being subjected to more than one type of violence has been shown to be even more strongly linked to mental ill-health also in adult patients. Hence, research supports that violence victimisation is associated with various symptoms and conditions for which people seek medical care. Therefore questions about violence victimization should routinely be included in the medical history.

    Gendered patterns of high violence exposure among Swedish youth2009In: Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Scandinavica, ISSN 0001-6349, E-ISSN 1600-0412, Vol. 88, no 5, p. 528-535Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVE: The WHO describes violence as a global public health problem. In contrast to domestic violence, violence against youth has been little explored. Our aims were to investigate the prevalence and gender differences in relation to emotional, physical and sexual abuse among young men and women attending youth health centers in Sweden, the current adverse effects of the abuse and the perpetrators of the abuse. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. SETTING: Nationally representative youth health centers in Sweden. POPULATION AND METHODS: In total, 2,250 women and 920 men aged 15-23 years answered a validated questionnaire about emotional, physical and sexual abuse. RESULTS: A total of 33% (CI: 31-35) of the young women and 18% (CI: 16-21) of the young men had been exposed to emotional abuse during the past year. For physical abuse, 18% (CI: 17-20) of the women and 27% (CI: 24-30) of the men stated that they had been abused during the past year. The gender differences for sexual abuse were pronounced, with 14% (CI: 12-15) of the young women and 4.7% (CI: 3.3-6.0) of the men stating that they had been abused during the past 12 months. The young women reported more severe adverse effects from all types of abuse and were more often abused by a person close to them. CONCLUSIONS: The exposure to violence among young people is alarming and presents prominent gender differences, and should be taken into serious consideration as it is a matter of health, democracy and human rights.

    Tydliga könsskillnader i ungdomars utsatthet för våld: Också stora skillnader mellan olika studier2010In: Läkartidningen, ISSN 0023-7205, E-ISSN 1652-7518, Vol. 107, no 18, p. 1230-1234Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare has declared that violence is a public health issue and also that young people aged 16-24 years are the category most exposed to violence. In this article the large differences in prevalence rates for exposure to different forms of violence, as reported in various Swedish studies, are presented and discussed. In most studies it was evident that young women were more often exposed to psychological and sexual violence than young men, while young men were more often exposed to physical violence. Young women's reporting of current suffering from the violence they had experienced was more pronounced than that reported by young men. A question for discussion is whether the violence exposure of young men and women might be a reason for the decline in psychological and physical health among youth, as reported in Swedish national health surveys over the past 15-20 years.

    Abstract [en]

    Violence against youth and its association with alcohol use was explored among secondary school students in Sweden. AUDIT-C was used to assess hazardous consumption of alcohol; for exposure to violence, NorVold Abuse Questionnaire was used. Hazardous consumption was common, about 40%, with no gender differences. This consumption pattern was associated with exposure to physical and sexual violence during the past year for both boys and girls. In general the association with physical violence was stronger for boys and sexual violence was stronger for girls. Boys were more often influenced by alcohol or other drugs regarding exposure to violence. For physical violence during the past year about 50% of the boys compared to about 30% of the girls had been influenced by alcohol or other drugs the latest reported event.

The aim of the present study was to estimate prevalence rates of physical,emotional and sexual abuse in women with premenstrual dysphoric disorder(PMDD) in comparison with gynecological outpatients and asymptomatic healthycontrol subjects. Design. Cross-sectional study. Settings. Departments of obstetricsand gynecology in three different Swedish hospitals. Population. Fifty-eightwomen meeting strict criteria for PMDD, a control group of 102 women seekingcare at the gynecological outpatient clinic (ObGyn controls) and 47 asymptomatichealthy control subjects were included in this study. Methods. The Swedish versionof the Abuse Assessment Screen was used to collect information on physical andsexual abuse, and the screening instrument was administered as a face-to-face interview.Main Outcome Measures. Previous and ongoing physical and sexual abuse.Results. Any lifetime abuse (physical, emotional or sexual) was reported by 31.0%of PMDD patients, by 39.2% of ObGyn controls and by 21.3% of healthy controls.The ObGyn controls reported physical and/or emotional abuse significantly moreoften than PMDD patients as well as healthy controls (p<0.05). Lifetime sexualabuse was reported significantly more often by ObGyn controls than by healthycontrols (p<0.05). Conclusions. Patients with PMDD appear not to have sufferedphysical, emotional or sexual abuse to a greater extent than other gynecologicalpatients or healthy control subjects. However, exposure to violence was common inall groups of interviewed women, and for the individual patient these experiencesmay contribute to their experience of symptoms.

    Prevalence of experiences of partner violence among female health staff: relevance to awareness and action when meeting abused women patients2008In: Women's health issues, ISSN 1049-3867, E-ISSN 1878-4321, Vol. 18, no 2, p. 141-149Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: As violence against women is a prevalent phenomenon, it is quite likely that health workers have experienced such violence. Prevalence among female health staff of emotional, physical and sexual abuse inflicted by a current or previous male partner as well as awareness of violence within the family of origin or among acquaintances were studied. Whether such experiences were associated with practice and knowledge concerning care of abused women was also examinated. Methods: Questionnaires were distributed to randomly selected female health care workers at a Swedish hospital. Response rate was 68% (588 participating). Bivariate and multivariate analyses were performed. Main findings: Emotional, physical and sexual abuse by a current or previous male partner was reported by 23.5%; abuse within family or among acquaintances by 22.1%. Associations between personal experience of violence and aspects of practice and knowledge in bivariate comparisons did not remain significant in binary logistic regression analyses, with one exception. Those with awareness of violence within the family or among acquaintances met abused women more frequently. Training was positively associated with all aspects of care and knowledge. Conclusion: The prevalence rate of intimate partner violence (23.5%) among female health staff was high and not unlike that of the Swedish female population in general. Training is of greater importance than personal experience of violence in the context of practice and knowledge when meeting abused women as patients. Hence, men's violence against women should be included in professional education and in in-service training.
