Abstract (Swedish)
Studiens syfte var att undersöka hur kvinnor som varit utsatta för våld i nära relationer upplevde sitt deltagande i bildterapi. Semistrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes med åtta kvinnor som deltog i en tolv veckor lång bildterapibehandling i grupp arrangerad av Brottsofferjouren och Kvinnojouren. Materialet analyserades med tematisk analys och åtta teman identifierades. Genomgående i dessa teman var dels hur bild som metod upplevdes av kvinnorna och hur de kunde använda sig av bilden som verktyg i bearbetningsprocessen av sitt trauma, dels hur gruppen och terapeuten spelade en viktig roll för kvinnornas upplevelse av deltagandet. Studiens visade även att kvinnorna
upplevde förändring i mående och självbild. Samtliga kvinnor beskrev... (More)

Studiens visade även att kvinnorna
upplevde förändring i mående och självbild. Samtliga kvinnor beskrev minskade
psykiska symptom, så som minskad nedstämdhet, ångest, oro, samt minskad fysisk
påverkan, exempelvis minskad spändhet, huvudvärk, och sömnsvårigheter. Efter
avslutad bildterapi rapporterade även kvinnorna flera positiva förändringar, så som ökat självförtroende och självkänsla, ökad tilltro till sin egen förmåga, ökad känsla av kontroll samt ljusare syn på framtiden. Resultaten diskuterades i förhållande till aktuell kunskap om trauma och våldsutsatthet, för att öka förståelsen för hur bildterapi kan upplevas som en insats till kvinnor som utsatts för våld i nära relationer.

Together with the group and the therapist, this was found to be the key aspects of the womens experiences of their participation. The women also experienced change in health and
self-image connected to their participation. All women described less psychological symptoms, like reduced dysphoria and anxiety, together with less physiological symptoms such as reduced tension, headaches and insomnia. After completion of the art therapy, the women rapported various positive changes, such as increased self esteem and self confidence, belief in their own abilities, sense of control and a brighter outlook on their future. The results were discussed in relation to current research in the field of trauma and intimate partner violence, to increase the understading regarding how art
therapy is experienced as an intervention for female victims of intimate partner violence. (Less)
