    The purpose of this study is to examine certain aspects of work with men who use violence in intimate relationships. In a Government bill in late 90s the Government presented its action plan on what is expected to be done in each municipality, but investigations show that the work is stationary. 46 percent of the men, who are in treatment, choose to cancel it. We wanted to find out how society will meet up with men who use violence in their intimate relationship and how to go about in the meeting.

     Those who lead us to the answers in this qualitative method are three social workers and a therapist who has the task of helping these men. The study is based on interviews from three municipalities in southern Sweden, the municipalities made ​​as in between 30-60 000 residents and businesses are startups; theoldest has been in operation for five years.

    The results showed that they had chosen to put these activities under the sections of the Social Services but is counted as a separate project, as the driving force may apply for funding via the County Council. A strong commitment shines through these projects and go- getter momentum is necessary. The interviewees express great concern that the men are those who fall away unless they receive more money next year. The meetings with these clients are like with the other clients, at any time, you treat them with respect and curiosity for the person you have in front of you. The main work of social welfare officers do is to motivate them to come to the therapist. The therapist is the one late to capture the man and persuade him to remain in treatment, through the verse and effluents and recognition.
