: Tackling a doubly problematic issue: A quantitative study about femalevictims of violence with substance-abuse problems from the perspectiveof social workers. (English)
Abstract [en]

Most women with substance-abuse problems are also subjected to violence, constituting a

serious societal challenge. The social support they receive has been found insufficient and a

need to strengthen knowledge/skills within social services has been highlighted. Using Christies

(1986) ’ideal victim’ theory as a framework, the purpose of this study was to describe social

workers self-perceived competence in relation to female clients subjected to violence, and to

explore their attitudes regarding women with substance-abuse problems. Social workers

managing female substance-abuse cases were recruited from all municipalities of Dalecarlia,

Sweden. The study was conducted based on a quantitative approach and questionnaires were

used for data collection. Participants’ responses indicated that the majority perceived their

competence to be good. Furthermore, participants tended to endorse non-ideal victim

descriptors of women with substance-abuse problems, and while the largest proportion (47,4%)

agreed with the statement that violence should be considered secondary to substance-abuse, a

similar proportion (42,1%) disagreed. These findings suggested that inadequate competence

within social services does not serve as an explanation for the insufficient social support.

Instead the study highlights attitudes and organizational conditions within social services in

relation to the women.

Abstract [sv]

Våldsutsatthet hos kvinnor med missbruks- eller beroendeproblematik är ett utbrett

samhällsproblem. Stödet till dessa tycks vara bristfälligt och behovet av ökad kompetens inom

socialtjänsten har lyfts. Syftet med denna studie var att mot bakgrund av Christies (1986) teori

om det idealiska offret beskriva missbrukshandläggare i Dalarnas kompetens i relation till

våldsutsatta kvinnliga klienter samt att undersöka deras uppfattningar gällande kvinnor med

missbruk/beroende. Studien utgick ifrån en kvantitativ ansats och datainsamlingen

genomfördes via en enkätundersökning. Handläggarnas svar indikerar att majoriteten upplevde

sig ha en god kompetens. Vidare tenderade handläggarna att kategorisera kvinnliga klienter

som icke-idealiska offer, och medan den största andelen (47,4%) instämde på påståendet att

våldsutsatthet är sekundär till missbruk/beroende hos klienter tog en liknande andel (42,1%)

avstånd. Resultatet indikerar att bristande kompetens inom socialtjänsten inte är förklaringen

till ett bristfälligt stöd och lyfter istället uppfattningar samt socialtjänstens organisatoriska

förutsättningar i relation till målgruppen.
