Myndigheterna gjorde mer skada än nytta : Tidigare våldsutsatta kvinnor om deras upplevelser av kontakten med myndigheter
Sammanfattning: Title: “The authorities did more harm than good” - Previously abused women about their experiences with authorities. The aim of this qualitative study was to examine how previously abused women in Sweden have experienced the contact they had with authorities as a result of the violence they were exposed to. Data collection has taken place through seven interviews with previously abused women. The results showed that these women mostly had negative experiences with social services and the police. They wished that these two authorities had more knowledge about intimate partner violence. The results have been analyzed with theories about social support and trust. The women experienced a lack of social support and developed a low level of trust in the authorities. The results in this study are consistent with previous research regarding negative experiences of contact with the authorities. The discussion shows that it is important to improve the work with abused women so that more women dare to seek help.
