Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate how municipal mental health care workers develop professional strategies, taking the risk of service user violence into account. Factors that professionals regard as hindering or furthering personal growth among the service users are particularly focused. Data were collected through focus group interviews. The analysis resulted in two main categories: working where the clients live their lives and focus on growth and development. Offering opportunities for restraint and growth for people with serious mental health disorders and risk of violence represents the basic factors for improving desirable processes. The health-promoting focus was managed through a resource-oriented and growth-oriented focus, where available services and workers' qualities and attitudes appear to be crucial.
