English abstract
This study demonstrates that there is variety of treatment interventions for children exposed to intimate violence. These interventions are differentiated in design but a common ground for them all is that they strive to provide a chance for children exposed to intimate violence, to be able to speak about and process their feelings and violent experiences. The study’s aim is to, with a qualitative approach, seek understanding for the different actors who practice social work, see upon their task in the treatment interventions that are provided for children exposed to intimate partner violence. The study is based on mapping the existing treatment interventions for previously mentioned target group, in Malmö. Concerned actors for this study are socialtjänsten (the Social Services), Barnkriscentrum (Children Crisis center), Maskrosen Söder (Dandelion South), Rädda Barnen (Save the Children International) and Barn- och ungdomspsykiatrin (BUP, Children- and youth psychiatry). For a deeper understanding and analyzing of the study’s results, we will use system theory and previous research in the actual disciplinary field. The result shows that concerned treatment interventions in most cases are without aid from the Social Services, which means that the Social Services do not grant these interventions. It is shown that they only recommend treatment interventions done by other intervening actors. Only one of the totals concerned actors, work with a treatment intervention that is granted by the Social Services. When the treatment intervention is heading to its end, it is shown that the professionals usually take the initiative for this kind of decisions. But they usually pay regards to the family’s wishes and needs. The final descicision of a treatment interventions’ ending is taken by the collective consisting of three parties, which are the Social Services, the family in treatment and the actors providing the actual treatment.
