Home study of marital violence women experience
a place to live home
The research aims to investigate marital violence through a qualitative interview with nine women suffering from their heterosexual spouses. From the interviews, the researcher gains a closer look at their subjective experience. Through semi-structured interviews, the participants narrate their own life stories about their views of from being unmarried, married, violence in marriage, and to leaving a marriage. Through their narration, we may understand the important interconnections among these periods, and the impact of which on their views and expectations of “home”. The second purpose of this research is to explore the social support system intervention process and its underlying process of the necessary supports these suffering women need when they try to establish a secure life. The research shows that women suffering from marital violence share a commonality in their expectation of “homes”. Their birth parents of these women were unable to provide the need of love and a sense of protection. Because of this insufficiency, women enter a marriage in order to get away from their birth homes, and the marital homes or the husband's families are viewed as a compensation of love for their birth homes. When they encounter marital violence and their expectations disenchant, these women leave their marriages and then ask for external assistance in order to build a warm, safe, and loving home for themselves and their children, and to practice self-expectations and views of the homes based on their own strength. The process of building a place to live, however, is full of challenges, such as residential, economic and emotional supports. Therefore, it is necessary for these women to rely on own abilities to cope with life challenges! The supports Government provided focus mainly on the emergency stage of the crisis for battered women in the marriage service. On the other hand, the counties’ Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Prevention Center is to build co-ordinate position in the overall work of violence prevention network. Because of the rigid specialization design, the suffering women’s roles are to be sacrificed in women's reconstruction of the secure home. This further leads that the battered women under the lack of support systems may fall back into the battered marriage family crisis. This research suggests that the services for marital violence women should start from the consideration of a secure life establishment. These considerations should include policy legislation, preventive network cooperation, social work practice, and education, which provides suitable service mode. Based on these foundations, implement what is needed for these battered women in the marriage. It is my sincere hope that the research will serve further understanding the specific needs of marital women, and provide useful evidence-based research findings to practitioners, policy-makers, and other stakeholders.
