Women victims of violence: Taking charge and impact of the work on the professional helpers

Abstract

Individual stories of women victims of violence from their partners should be analysed in the light of a commune denominator, their future in a social context, a culture, a system of roles, prejudices and stereotypes still marked by the idea of subalternity of the female gender. To support the women to cope in this perspective with the events that have wounded them represents a focal point of specialized reception, as it allows the “victims” to unravel a series of doubts, inadequacies and personal guilt in a clear vision of the general context, which formed the  “background” of their biography. This allows the professional helper to address them with an empathic, non judging attitude and be able to tailor interventions and produce suitable personalized projects.
