Abstract [en]

Introduction: Experience of violence towards a caregiver during childhood is associated with a risk of negative impact

on children’s health and development, and there is a need for effective interventions in clinical as well as in community

settings. Research has shown that existing interventions in Sweden for children with experience of violence towards a

caregiver are associated with positive but insufficient outcomes. In addition to implementation of new evidence based

interventions expanded knowledge is needed on outcomes of established interventions aiming at identifying possible

needs for improvement.

Method: The current study is an effectiveness study aiming at investigating the outcomes of two established group

interventions for children exposed to intimate partner violence and their non-offending parent, one community based

psychoeducative intervention and one psychotherapeutic treatment intervention. The study included 50 children, 24

girls and 26 boys, aged 4-13 years. Background information, child and parental mental health problems and trauma

symptoms was assessed pre- and post-treatment as well as 6 and 12 months post treatment.

Results: The results indicate that children benefit from both interventions, yet mothers of a majority of the children still

reported child trauma symptoms at clinical levels post treatment. Preliminary results from the follow up assessments will

be presented, such as outcomes in symptoms reduction and possible associations with confounding variables.

Discussion: Theoretical, methodological and clinical implications will be discussed.
