This paper examines the placement of battered and abused women’s resocialization opportunities at women’s shelters in Denmark. This study was conducted to analyze the collected empirical data from our interview which includes the perspectives from the professional staff at a women’s shelter. The purpose of this study was therefore to obtain a better understanding of battered women’s difficulties. In addition, we wanted to understand the individual shelter and therefore
we were able to gain insight rather than an universal result in connection with shelters and women’s resocialization.
We chose the qualitative interview method and considered the selected critical theories for our study. This method was applied to collect the needed information from our interviewees for the later analytical work. Throughout our analysis we used the psychosocial approach in addition to another approach, which allowed us to view the problem from the micro-, meso- and macro levels. In order to cover the analysis from different angles, we chose two theories from the same mind-sets. We applied Axel Honneth’s (2006) recognition theory and Oskar Negt’s (1974) public sphere and experience theory to analyze the issue in this study.
Throughout our study we concluded that there is a greater neglect in how we in the modern society try to manage the complexities involving domestic violence.
The societies main resolutions is to place battered and abused women at shelters and even though we conclude that women's shelters makes an important effort to women's resocialization, this is not sufficient.
