The aim with this study was too investigate how social workers within specialized departments, that has the mission to work with intimate partner violence, understand and work with intimate partner violence. The study was based on semi-structured interviews with social workers that work with intimate partner violence. The selection consisted of 5 interviewees within the same department, but they were working with different perspective, female, male and from a child’s perspective. Qualitative research methodology has been used for the study. The theory framework for the study has been based on normative theory and theories about different types of violence existing in the relationship. The social workers use concepts of normality to understand intimate partner violence. The conclusion is that the definition of intimate partner violence is clearly defined, but the understanding of intimate partner violence is complex as the social workers are working with different perspectives. The social workers are working both with the means of understanding the reasons for the violence and with focus on the solution, trying to brake patterns of violence that exist in the relation. What is especially emphasised are children who has been abused or been witness to violence in the family and that all these cases are to be investigated in order to focus more on the children’s situation and the trauma that violence in the family causes. The ambition is to work with the whole family situation, with all parts involved in the intimate partner violence. (Less)
