Sammanfattning: The purpose of this study is to investigate the work situation of housing supporters after exposure to threats and violence in the workplace. The study has a qualitative research approach and an abductive approach. Five housing supporters and a former housing supporter, now in a leading position, were interviewed with the help of semi-structured interviews. The participants lived in two municipalities in Central Sweden and were selected through a goal-directed selection and a snowball selection. The result is explained with the help of Demand- Control- and Support-model as well as the Lifeworld Theory. The empirical study is based on the answers from the interviews, the empirical data has been processed and analyzed and then presented in three main categories. The results show that several housing supporters feel that their mental state is negatively affected by threats and violence in the workplace. The results also show that social support is of great importance for reducing the negative stress and alleviating the negative consequences of threats and violence, and that education is important for housing supporters' ability to prevent and manage threats and violence in the workplace. It emerged that there was a need for more training, as it was considered a key factor in securing the necessary tools needed to be able to perform a good job.
