Abstract

The purpose of this study is to gain a higher level of understanding of how children act and handle a violent home environment, using social workers experiences of working with children growing up in a violent home. The focus of the study is that violence is performed by the father against the mother. The study was based on a qualitative method; I preformed semi-structured interviews with five social workers with multiple years of experience working with vulnerable children. The theoretical framework of the analysis was based on the theory attachment and concepts as attachment, attachment behavior, attachment system, internal working models and a secure base which I used to explain the magnitude of violence and the influence on the child having to experience violence were it is supposed to be safe. As a conclusion; when children face danger they activate a range of behavior to obtain the mothers attention in hope to approach her and maintain a sense of security and protection. When violence occupies the family’s way of life the mother is no longer available and the child needs to develop new ways to reach the mother and achieve security and protection which is vital for the child’s survival.
