Narrative art inquiry and anorexia nervosa

Jennifer Craig Health lecturer, School of Nursing, University of Nottingham, Derbyshire Royal Infirmary, Derby

Narrative art inquiry is a new qualitative research methodology. It is different from the narrative approaches used by some nurse investigators because the study’s findings are presented in the form of creative writing. In this article the author describes narrative art inquiry using material from research that used this approach to study anorexia nervosa. The author believes that narrative art inquiry has a wider application and could be used to study other types of psychological illness and physiological distress.
