CUNHA, Élida Mayara da Nóbrega  e  DUTRA, Elza Maria do Socorro. "Hi, my name is Ana" - a women's experience existential-phenomenological study with nervosa anorexia. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2018, vol.24, n.2, pp. 182-193. ISSN 1809-6867.

This research's objective was to understand, from an existential-phenomenological perspective, anorexia experience. Semi-structured interviews were used as a means of access to the experience. Female two people were interviewed, at the age of 17 and 30. The interview begins with a starter question, "How was, or how, their anorexia experience?", which allowed the interviewee to talk about their experience. The field diary was also used as a methodological resource, seeking a greater approximation of the experiences of the interviewees and the researcher. The interviews and the field diary were interpreted by Heidegger's hermeneutics. The senses unveiled in the narratives revealed issues beyond the physical and pathological issue, being involved family, wishes, friends, experiences, life projects. Among the Heideggerian ideas highlighted are careful, inhospitality, to dwell, openness the possibilities and factuality, which could be discussed in the interpretation, generating reflections on the meanings of anorexia nervosa experience in the existence of the interviewees.
