Sammanfattning

Intimate partner violence (IPV) strikes thousands of victims every year. The public works as IPV victims’ immediate support system, yet we know little about public perceptions of IPV. By using a Swedish community sample (N = 650) beliefs about prevalence, victims’ responsibility, and viable means of interventions were assessed. Respondents believed psychological violence to be the most frequent type of abuse, striking in general 24 % of all Swedish intimate relationships. Low income takers, non-European inhabitants, people resident in suburban areas were identified as especially vulnerable groups. Perceptions of type of abuse were contingent to offender gender, where male offenders were considered to use mainly physical violence, as opposed to female offenders who were considered to abuse psychologically. Moderate levels of victim blame were reported and male respondents held victims responsible for the violence to a larger extent than female respondents. Eight out of ten respondents suggested at least one viable mean of intervention, however, type of interventions were limited. Findings were discussed in contrast to statistics of IPV incidences and future implications were suggested.
