Body image and body dissatisfaction in patients with anorexia nervosa
Pivoňková, Věra ; Hrachovinová, Tamara (advisor) ; Ottová, Barbora (referee)
The bachelor thesis deals with body image and dissatisfaction with own body in patients with anorexia nervosa. The construct of body image is described in the theoretical introduction and furthermore the focus is mainly on the description of the basic mechanisms of its formation. The historical and cultural conditionality of this phenomenon is also mentioned. In Western societies, the dissatisfaction with one's own body is growing, thanks to the universally accepted ideal of slenderness. This fact is associated with an increase in eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa. The paper mentions the specifics of anorexia nervosa in relation to body image and subsequently includes a proposal of a research study focused on comparison of body image (Multidimensional Body-Self Relations Questionnaire, MBSRQ), dissatisfaction with one's body (Dosedlova test silhouette), state of situational self-awareness (Situational Self-Awareness Scale, SSAS) and type of parental attachment (Parental Bonding Instrument, PBI), among the sample of forty women's patients with anorexia nervosa at the age of fifteen-eighteen and a comparative group of women from the non-clinical population. The expected results of the study are discussed in the conclusion with the results of previous studies.
Mental changes in women due to the use of hormonal contraception
Ottová, Barbora ; Šulová, Lenka (advisor) ; Weiss, Petr (referee)
The study investigates physical, mental and sexual changes in women at the beginning of use or after discontinuation of a combined hormonal contraception. Thirty women were interviewed at least 3 months and at most 2 years after the start of use or discontinuation of combined hormonal contraception. Semi-structured interviews were supplemented by 16- symptom rating scale on which women assessed the results of an imaginary study of side effects of hormonal contraception. Both methods identically demonstrated pronounced effect of combined hormonal contraception on decline in sexual desire and painful menstruation. No clear difference was found in psychical symptoms, although qualitative analysis indicated possible changes. Further research is needed to test subsequent hypothesis.
