Participation for children exposed to domestic violence?: social workers' approaches and children's strategies
Uppsala universitet.ORCID iD: 0000-0002-7261-6643
2012 (English)In: European Journal of Social Work, ISSN 1369-1457, E-ISSN 1468-2664, Vol. 15, no 2, 205-221 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article explores social workers’ approaches to children exposed to domestic violence and children’s strategies in encounters with these professionals in the context of family law proceedings. Investigator approaches as well as child strategies are reconstructed from children’s narratives. Furthermore, possible links between the social worker’s approach described by a particular child, and the child’s own strategies are outlined. Participation can offer children validation of their experiences and support their recovery after exposure to violence. However, it is suggested that it seems to be a challenging task for social workers to both validate children’s experiences of violence and simultaneously offer them participation in the investigation process.

Abstract [sv]

Artikeln undersöker vårdnads-, boende- och umgängesutredares bemötanden av barn som upplevt pappas våld mot mamma samt barns strategier i möten med den här gruppen socialarbetare. Såväl de professionellas praktik som barnens strategier rekonstrueras ur barns berättelser. Vidare undersöks relationen mellan det bemötande som beskrivs av ett enskilt barn, och barnets egna strategier. Delaktighet i familjerättsprocesser kan bidra till giltiggörande av barns upplevelser och ge dem stöd i återhämtningen efter att de utsatts för den ena förälderns våld mot den andra. Det framstår dock som en utmaning för familjerättsutredare att bemöta utsatta barn som offer och samtidigt erbjuda dem delaktighet i utredningsprocessen.
