Research on the Transaction of Refuge Services for the Abused Women in Taiwan
When abused women leave an abusive relationship, they do not know where they will end up. Finding a safe place to stay immediately can be lifesaving. Refuges are considered important because they provide abused women with temporary housing, advice, personal support and facilitate their use of agencies. This study aims to explore what the transition of refuge services is. The study will address a number of research questions: What services do refuges provide for abused women? What the provision of refuge services has been changed? What services should be changed in order to meet abused women’s needs? The study is based on qualitative research and the research methods include interviews and focus group. As for interviews, the subjects are chosen from many refuges, with relevant staff being interviewed. There is more detailed discussions with several groups of social workers, who work with abused women. The results from interview analysis reflect that the policies of refuge services have not a clear perspective on working with the refuges. The main finding from the focus groups reveals that social workers have faced a variety of diffi-culties to collaborate with the different ethnic women because social workers have a demand for culture competence. As a result, the study proposed a several recommendation for social workers when they work with the ethnic women.
