This project is investigating the experience of severe and enduring anorexia nervosa, and will involve participants photographing 10 images that capture their experience with the eating disorder and discussing this in a two-hour interview. Participants have reported a sense of power and processing of their experience in other studies using this method. It is hoped that the findings from this study will enhance the overall understanding of how this type of anorexia nervosa is experienced from the perspective of the individuals affected by this disorder. There are no costs and participation will be kept confidential.
Individuals who 18 years or older, and have experience with anorexia nervosa for a period of seven years or more.
Photographing 10 images that represent your journey with anorexia nervosa and discussing these images in a two-hour interview, with the potential for a second one-hour interview.
Any location – if outside of Sydney, interviews can be conducted via Skype.
