The relational world of anorexia nervosa : a phenomenological exploration into the experiences of pursued weight loss amongst womenSampaio, Danielle January 2012 (has links)
Aims: This thesis aims to illuminate the experiences of 8 women between the ages of 22-60 who have experienced anorexia nervosa. In particular, the aim is to understand their relationship to food within the context of their wider lived world and relationships. The meaning that anorexic behaviours carried for participants is also looked at in detail. Additionally, attention is paid to the experience of any change that has occurred with their relationship to food, themselves and others. Method: Data was analysed using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis. This method allows for in-depth data to be gathered on participants’ unique experiences, whilst uncovering commonalities of themes within a homogenous sample group. Embracing reflexivity as a researcher is an equally important part of this thesis. There is a continual engagement with my personal and professional values, beliefs and potential biases that could have influenced the findings of this thesis. Findings: The analysis produced five master themes: 1) Problematic Relationships within the Family, 2) Challenging Relationships and Experiences with the Wider World, 3) A Conflicted Relationship between the Physical and Psychological Sense of Self, 4) A Meaningful Relationship with Food, 5) The Role and Influence of Others in the Process of Change. Discussion: The importance of understanding anorexia nervosa within the context of participants’ wider past and present experiences and relationships was notable. This includes understanding how anorexia relates to their relationship with themselves and their fragile sense of self. There is a perceived need to work collaboratively as counselling psychologists, to ensure that clients have access to a range of therapeutic interventions which focus not just on symptom alleviation, but on deeper problematic relationships.

M.A. / The available research on eating attitudes focuses to a large degree on eating disorders. The literature indicates that psychosocial determinants play a role in the eating attitudes of those individuals who suffer from eating disorders. The eating attitudes of Individuals who do not suffer from eating disorders, however, are also affected by psychosocial determinants. This study sets out to determine which psychosocial determinants play a role in the eating attitudes of a selected student population. After having studied the available literature on the subject, the following factors were identified for inclusion in this research study: self-esteem, boredom, anxiety, depression, stress, HIV/Aids, social factors, family dynamics, interpersonal relationships, anger, guilt, loss of control, fatigue, spiritual factors, and psychological distress. The research reveals the significance of these factors, either on their own or in combination, in shaping the eating attitudes and habits of the selected student population. The study was motivated by modern society’s increasing obsessed with food, eating and dieting, as well as the multidimensional role of food in modern life. It primarily serves as life-sustaining nourishment, but it has adopted multiple social meanings and emotional attachments as well. The study was conducted by designing a questionnaire to derive answers pertaining to the relevance of the respective psychosocial factors to eating attitudes. This questionnaire was distributed among the second year, third year and honours psychology students at RAU. The results indicated that psychosocial factors played a significant role in how and why the sample population ate. Awareness of the influence of these psychosocial determinants may contribute to changing those habits that may not be beneficial to the individual. This information could be applied by health practitioners in various fields of health care, such as psychologists, dieticians and medical practitioners.
