Abstract

The purpose of this study was to interview women with a history of abuse but who currently have a job. Their route to work was examined, factors that facilitated and impeded this and also important turning points in their lives at the period. The study has a qualitative approach with interviews conducted with six respondents. It emerged in the study that many women began to abuse because of an abusive partner or various other difficulties in life. The study showed that after the women finished their abuse and got a job, could their abusing friends still contact them. This could lead to the women once again fallen back into his addiction and unable to work. The results showed that women's motivation was central as well as support from the environment and especially people in authority were important when it was about to quit the habit. It can be concluded from this study that a good treatment from government officials and a belief in a change in people is crucial, which can be beneficial to carry around in their role as a government official. Several respondents point out that their work is important because they now have a job and because they can focus on something other than their addiction. A conclusion that this could mean that their employment may be one reason that women can stay away from a life in abuse.
