Abstract
Aim: This study was conducted in order to examine the relationship between social appearance anxiety, stress and kinesophobia of obese individuals. Method: This was a descriptive study. The population of the study consisted of obese individuals in dietary outpatient clinics of a hospital in Erzurum. Without using the sample selection method, the study was conducted with 333 obese individuals who agreed to participate between mentioned dates. Results: A positively significant correlation was determined between social appearance anxiety, kinesophobia and BMI. There was no correlation between stress and social appearance anxiety. However, a positively significant correlation was found between kinesophobia and BMI and stress. Marital status was determined to affect kinesophobia, stress, and BMI scores. According to the result of one way analysis of variance; parameters of kinesophobia, social appearance anxiety and stress showed a difference significantly compared to BMI group (p<0.05). Kinesophobia did not show a significant difference in terms of BMI (p>0.05). While overweighed individuals had the lowest mean score for mean scores of kinesophobia, social appearance anxiety and stress scales, morbid obese individuals had the highest mean score (p<0.05). Conclusion: It was observed that as BMI increased, stress, kinesophobia and social appearance anxiety of individuals increased. These factors should be considered when planning nursing interventions for obese individuals.
