    Att minska risken för våld och att främja återhämtning i den rättspsykiatriska vården: Patienters och personalens erfarenheter av vägen mot återhämtning2013Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is written in a forensic nursing context. It reflects both the patients’ and the nursing staff´s experiences associated with turning points in reduced violence risk and recovery. The overall aim of the thesis was to examine factors related to the turning points associated with reduced risk for violence and factors which contribute to recovery, based on the salutogenic approach in forensic mental health nursing.

    Time to introduce mandatory teaching about violence in the family: A survey of social workers experience of working with honor-based violence and oppression2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    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?

    Reducing or increasing violence in forensic care: A qualitative study of inpatient experiences2015In: Archives of Psychiatric Nursing, ISSN 0883-9417, E-ISSN 1532-8228, Vol. 29, no 6, p. 393-400Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Semi-structured interviews with 13 forensic psychiatric inpatients that had decreased their assessed risk of violence were analyzed using interpretive description. The main contribution from this study is a detailed description of patients' own strategies to avoid violence. Participants described having an ongoing inner dialog in which they encouraged themselves, thereby increasing their self-esteem and trying to accept their current situation. An unsafe and overcrowded ward with uninterested and nonchalant staff increased the risk of aggressive behavior. In the process of decreasing violence, the patients and the forensic psychiatric nursing staff interacted to create and maintain a safe environment.

    Socialtjänstens arbete med hedersvåld: Resultat från en intervjuundersökning2018Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Länsstyrelsen i Dalarnas län har i uppdrag av regeringen att stödja samordningen av insatser i länet som syftar till att motverka mäns våld mot kvinnor, att barn bevittnar våld, hedersrelaterat våld och förtryck samt prostitution och människohandel för sexuella ändamål. Länsstyrelsen har även en viktig roll i att kontinuerligt verka för utveckling av samverkan mellan kommuner och ansvariga myndigheter. Ett led i länsstyrelsens arbete att motverka hedersrelaterat våld och förtryck är forskningsprojekt om Socialtjänstens arbete med hedersrelaterat våld med Högskolan Dalarna som projektägare. Projektet har finansierats av 2015 års utvecklingsmedel för Hedersrelaterat våld och har pågått under perioden 2016–2017. Rapportens resultatdel baseras på intervjuer med socialsekreterare som inom ramen för sin myndighetsutövning, ansvarar för ärenden som gäller våld i nära relationer och hedersrelaterat våld och förtyck. Målet med rapporten har varit att få en nulägesuppfattning om socialtjänsternas arbete med våld i nära relationer, med särskilt fokus på hedersrelaterat våld och förtryck samt att identifiera områden som kan förbättras och utvecklas vidare. Implementering av nya arbetssätt med fokus på hedersrelaterat våld och förtryck, förefaller fortfarande befinna sig i ett inledningsskede hos många socialtjänster i Dalarnas län. Vidare framgår att arbetet med hedersrelaterat våld och förtryck uppfattas som ett kontroversiellt arbetsområde som är förenat med många dilemman. Det ges uttryck för att stödet från arbetsledningen är viktigt för att hantera osäkerhet och skapa legitimitet i arbetet. Beskrivningar ges av arbetsplatser som präglas av personalomsättning och brist på kontinuitet. Samtidigt ges goda exempel på arbetsplatser där det förekommer ett utvecklingsarbete som präglas av ett kollegialt ansvarstagande. Resultatet visar att socialtjänsten förfogar över en ytterst begränsad mängd insatser och metoder för att bistå de våldsutsatta och deras anhöriga. Framgår att det föreligger behov av fortsatta utbildningssatsningar inom området för socialtjänstens personal.

    Violence Risk Assessment in Forensic Nurses’ Clinical Practice: A Qualitative Interview Study2017In: Global Journal of Health Science, ISSN 1916-9736, E-ISSN 1916-9744, Vol. 9, no 12, p. 56-63Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Reducing violence in forensic care: How does it resemble the domains of a recovery-oriented care?2016In: Journal of Mental Health, ISSN 0963-8237, E-ISSN 1360-0567, Vol. 25, no 6, p. 506-511Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Forensic psychiatry is characterized by involuntary treatment and risk of violence. The concept of recovery is rarely in focus as the primary focus is on risk assessment, violence prevention and reducing coercion in care.

    Aim: To determine what resources forensic staff use to avoid or prevent violent situations, and to explore how these practices resemble the domains of recovery-oriented care.

    Method: Semi-structured interviews with staff who were identified by forensic patients as key workers in their recovery process. Interview texts were analyzed using interpretive content analysis.

    Results: Staff prevent violent situations using tacit knowledge and experience, and through a shared collegial responsibility. Staff safeguard patients, encourage patient participation, and provide staff consistency.Conclusions: The results have implications for forensic care as well as psychiatry regarding the process of making recovery a reality for patients in the forensic care setting.

    Turning towards recovery in forensic psychiatric inpatients: A study based on staff experience2014In: Nordisk sygeplejeforskning, ISSN 1892-2678, E-ISSN 1892-2686, Vol. 4, no 3, p. 175-188Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Many individuals sentenced to forensic psychiatric care fail in the rehabilitation process, resulting in long-term inpatient hospital care. The concepts of turning points and treatment readiness in forensic settings should therefore be afforded more attention. Much can be learned from the features that characterize trajectories of recovery and processes related to turning points. The aim of this study was to explore forensic nursing staff’s experiences of forensic psychiatric patients’ turning towards recovery. A qualitative content analysis was used to analyse interviews with 13 forensic psychiatric nursing staff. Analysis of the data revealed two main themes with implications for clinical practice: promoting a turning point and recognizing a turning point. In the first of these, the emphasis was on actions and conditions that must exist to promote a turning. In the second, the main experiences related to recognizing a turning point were stories about visible and perceptible changes in the patient. The experiences that stood out most distinctly were those of being able to wait out the patient, and having patience when there was a lack of progression. The composition of staff and patients contributed to whether or not the environment was perceived as salutary.

    Reaching a turning point - how patients in forensic care describe trajectories of recovery2014In: Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences, ISSN 0283-9318, E-ISSN 1471-6712, Vol. 28, no 3, p. 505-514Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In Sweden, the duration of treatment is increasing for patients admitted to forensic psychiatric care. To reduce the length of stay, it is important for the forensic rehabilitation and recovery process to be effective and safe. Not much is known about how the process of recovery and transition begins and how it is described by the forensic patients. The purpose of this study was to explore how forensic patients with a history of high risk for violence experienced the turn towards recovery. A qualitative content analysis was used to analyse interviews with 10 patients who had decreased their assessed risk for violence on the risk assessment instrument HCR-20 and who were successfully managed a lower level of security. Three themes were identified: (i) the high-risk phase: facing intense negative emotions and feelings (ii) the turning point phase: reflecting on and approaching oneself and life in a new way (iii) the recovery phase: recognising, accepting and maturing. In the high-risk phase, chaotic and overwhelming feelings were experienced. The turning point phase was experienced as a sensitive stage, and it was marked by being forced to find a new, constructive way of being. The recovery phase was characterised by recognising personal circumstances in life, including accepting the need for structure, a feeling of maturity and a sense of responsibility for their own life. In order to ensure a successful recovery, the forensic nursing staff needs to recognise and support processes related to treatment motivation and turning points. Recommendations for best nursing practice are given accordingly.

    Decreased risk for violence in patients admitted to forensic care, measured with the HCR-202013In: Archives of Psychiatric Nursing, ISSN 0883-9417, E-ISSN 1532-8228, Vol. 27, no 4, p. 191-197Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    AIM: The aim of this study was to explore if patients admitted to forensic psychiatric care decreased their assessed risk for violence over time, to identify patients who decreased their assessed risk for violence exceptionally well (30% or more) on the clinical (C) and risk management (R) scales in the (HCR-20), and to compare them in terms of demographic data.

    METHODS: The HCR-20 risk assessment instrument was used to assess the risk for violence in 267 patients admitted to a Swedish forensic psychiatric clinic between 1997 and 2010. Their assessments at admission were compared with a second, and most recent, risk assessment.

    RESULTS: The risk for violence decreased over time. Demographic criteria had no impact on differences on decreased risk. Only two factors, namely gender and psychopathy showed a difference. Risk factors associated with stress and lack of personal support were the items that turned out to be the most difficult to reduce.

    CONCLUSION: The results show that risk prevention in forensic care does work and it is important to continue to work with risk management. The study highlights the importance of a careful analysis of the patient's risk for violence in order to work with the patient's specific risk factors to reduce the risk.

    To decrease the risk for violence for patients sentenced to forensic psychiatric care: Personnel and patient´s views2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Risk assessment for future violence is an important area to do research on, since it concerns both the individual patient and the society. The occurrence of threats of violence and violence is a reality for patients and staff in psychiatric institutions therefore, the clinical work to reduce the risk for violence is important. To decrease the risk of violence by patients in forensic psychiatric care it is essential to look further into nursing. The nursing staff works closely with the patients on a daily basis. They create a relationship with the patient based on trust and hope, but at the same time they also assess the risk for violence continuously. Risk assessments are done as a routine as a part of the forensic care. In a further perspective this is done to protect society from patient related violence.
