A sensitive child and his threatening world: the genesis of a Hikikomori

A sensitive child and his threatening world: the genesis of a Hikikomori | Understanding (and Overcoming) Internet Addiction and Hikikomori | Scoop.it

This is the road toward HYikikomori :

- I'm a loner, a sensitive child
- I don't understand this world
- this World doesn't understand me
- this World looks too threatening
- this World terrifies me
- maybe I can avoid it...
- ...or maybe I can escape it
- exile is the only solution

As we'll see in next slides a hikikomori loses contact with the World, so he grows unable to test and create new maps of the World and the Society.

This will scare the boy more and more, and he enters a neverending spiral until the ultimate self-reclusion.

Ivan Ferrero's insight:

Hikikomori syndrome usually starts in the early age.

Here external factors (usually a real threatening world) meet inner factors.

This mix may trigger what will end with the Hikikomori syndrome that will develop during the teenage until the adultage.

Hikikomori - Luca's story: an introductory video

We'll talk about Luca, a boy (18-20 yo, now Hikikomori ) and how he retreated more and more in his room.

This is a real case study, enriched in order to give you a wider overview of the issue.

Let's start from the end (watch the video), then we'll answer to the question: How did we come at this point?

Ivan Ferrero's insight:

In this video you can find all the most typical last stage Japanese Hikikomori characteristics:

 

- self confined

- a day-night circle compromised

- no taking care for his body/physical space

- the Web as his main (and only) way to communicate with the World

- a mother who colludes with her son's issue

- the lack of a male presence
