Report on end-user needs

A report on the end-user needs has been developed, including the technical specification for video-based counselling service and app based support in the STOP-project.

In order to develop the STOP intervention, focus group interviews, individual interviews and workshops were conducted with relevant stakeholders in both Denmark and Spain. The following were identified as the main aspects where the women are in need of support:

Acknowledgement: The pregnant woman does not see herself as a victim of violence and finds it hard to accept.
Ambivalent emotions towards the partner: They have a lot of dreams and hopes regarding their relationship, and this makes it hard to accept that their “life project” to create a family is broken.
Fear of the system: Fear of losing custody of their child if they communicate their situation.
Resources: Worries about being on their own, having to do everything on their own and without financial support from the partner.
Low self-esteem: Finding it difficult to make decisions and taking actions to change their situation.
Isolation: Rebuilding their connections and relations in the world, helping them identify their network and learn about the resources available for help.

The user needs were translated into technical specifications for the video counselling software and the safety planning app.
