Abstract [en]

Objectives

One of the starting point for work with human rights is to prevent and combat men's violence against women and children (VAW), including honor-related violence and oppression (HRV). According to the WHO (2013), a large part of the global burden of disease was related to VAW. In Sweden, fifteen new legislative changes were introduced to clarify the authorities' responsibility for violence within the family. Recently, a regulation was established in Sweden, which stipulates that a number of higher education programs in Sweden must include teaching on VAW and HRV. This presentation will describe the findings from an interview study, which investigated Swedish social workers' experience of working with honor-related violence and oppression. 

Method

A convenience sample of eleven social workers from seven different social welfare offices participated in the study. The interviews were analysed using qualitative content analysis.

Results

Participants state that teaching about VAW and HRV has been lacking in their undergraduate education and that that creates difficulties in their operational work. Furthermore, work with HRV was perceived as a controversial area, associated with many dilemmas. This despite the fact that many social workers know that violence within the family is often an important factor when people end up in different forms of distress and misery. The lack of knowledge makes it difficult for the social services to develop methods and approaches to assist the victims of violence and their relatives.

Conclusions

It is important to create legitimacy for social workers to work on issues relating to human rights, including VAW and HRV. The research community’s knowledge of the field needs to be implemented as soon as possible in a variety of higher education programs. Relevant professionals must be offered training and education in dealing with social inequality and developing approaches that can realize human rights in practice, in particular the violence that occurs within the family. Further research may be developed by examining:

- Are there ideological contradictions among researchers that hinder development in the field?

- Do social workers experience acceptance and a mandate to work with VAW and HRV?

Abstract [en]

Background: The legislation of Swedish forensic psychiatric care states that the risk of further violence must beassessed before a patient is granted release from a forensic psychiatric hospital. The aim of the study was todescribe the experiences of forensic nurses with in-patient risk assessment processes, and their implication fordaily clinical forensic praxis.

Method: Semi-structured interviews with staff who were involved in the patients risk assessment process. Theinterview texts were analyzed using qualitative latent content analysis.

Discussion: The forensic nursing staff has to deal with many contradictory realities. The description was aboutbeing able to balance between supporting their work with an EBP approach of risk assessment while trying toestablish interpersonal relationships and to allow for positive meetings with the patient. The study indicated thatstaff used a multiple sources of knowledge in order to make credible and accurate risk assessments.

Conclusions: If the risk assessment process are to be used in a legally secure manner, the staff must receive regularsupport from team leadership that can provide both guidance and training. Based on a holistic approach, the linkbetween the instinct of staff and their work with structured risk assessment must be founded on routines and solidplatforms.
