The Development of an Orthorexia Nervosa Interview
About this study
Research suggests that some people may experience an unhealthy obsession with healthy eating, which has been referred to as Orthorexia Nervosa. However, it is not clear whether such a condition exists and, if so, whether it is different from other conditions (such as one of the recognised eating disorders). In order to conduct research in this area, the first step is the development of an interview that can identify people experiencing problems related to their focus on healthy eating. In this study we are seeking to pilot an interview that asks about people’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviours regarding healthy eating.
The study will be administrated in person in a private room within the Research School of Psychology at the ANU. Completing this study will take approximately 1.5 to 2 hours.
