About Anna L Jonhed
Anna L Jonhed (previously Forssell) work as a senior lecturer in social work. She is a qualified social worker and took her PhD in social work in spring of 2016. Her dissertation concerns the relationship between children and their fathers in cases involving intimate partner violence.
Anna’s primary research interest is children’s vulnerability in general, and in particular, experiences of intimate partner violence and child abuse. At the moment she is part of the RISKSAM-study where she investigates quality of life and strategies of handling risk in mother’s and children who have experienced intimate partner violence or stalking.
Earlier studies have been focusing children’s experiences of violence in the family with special interest in the child-father relationship in families where the father has been violent against the mother. Other areas of interest are parenting, questions concerning custody and contact, and parental care in families with a history of violence.
Anna teaches at the social work program at Örebro university and on different courses on the National centre for knowledge on men’s violence against women (NCK) at Uppsala university. Teaching concerns mainly violence in the family, parenting in families and different methodological issues. She also supervises essays on candidate and master level.
During the last years has Anna also made evaluations of a Children’s advocacy center (Barnahus), and “Kids’ Club” – a treatment for children who have witnessed violence against a parent.
