Sabina Belshaku


Social worker on shelter should be familiar with the process of domestic violence. This involves the various forms of violence, consequences of violence, and ways of assisting victims of domestic violence. The aim of this study is to determine the overall objective of the role of social workers in national centers for victims of domestic violence. Also, this study aims to contribute to the improvement of services provided by the state for battered women. Through the application of qualitative research method conducted in the center of battered women retained in the estimated service, Kamëz was a source of comfort to abused women and how they are integrated into the society after leaving the shelter. This study relies on the theory of Social Work Feminist intended to be applied to a study type of ethnographic concentrated in the center. This is based on its history, operation, the view of the center, and the data obtained from documents, archives, and available data center. The data was obtained through observation, focus groups, and interviews with mixed application of semi-structured and structured. Most of the respondents claim that they know and have used the shelter services. Hence, we can say that there is a positive assessment of quality. We conclude that existing services are effective enough, enjoyable, and qualitative. Women emphasized that the state should intervene more to meet their needs, such as the need for more information and sensitization about violence. This requires an increase in economic aid from the state as well as important services, such as psycho-social support. Also, the role of social workers in national centers for victims of domestic violence should be expanded and strengthened.
