Networking Against Intimate Partner Violence: Experiences from the perspectives of the professionals

Abstract [en]

Violence against women, of which intimate partner violence (IPV) is a significant part, is a widespread public health problem. There is a great need for effective programs that address this issue. The objective of this study was to explore the experiences expressed by the members of the Karla network whose purpose was to combat IPV. Due to the nature of the study, a qualitative approach was taken and data was gathered through interviews with professionals in the network. The function of collaboration and its impact on the individuals is highlighted by the core category: Striving for progress. The categories that resulted from the analysis were: 1) Achieving professional satisfaction, 2) Developing professional competence, and 3) Treading water. Working within the network was perceived as rewarding, as the network improved the quality of their work. Updated guidelines and routines were regarded as essential to improve the collaboration. To progress in the work against IPV, methods to recognize and attend to abused women should be refined and implemented. More focus needs to be put on preventive actions. There is reason to direct actions toward children and adolescents and thus the arenas that initially should be engaged are media, school, and youth clinics.
