Nicolas Tajan: social withdrawal between two cultures

This article presents a case study of an adolescent girl in social withdrawal (hikikomori), including interviews with her parents. The Cultural Formulation Interview (CFI – informant version), and the McGill Illness Narrative Interview (MINI) are used. The author emphasizes the necessity of starting treatment early, via home visits, and insists on the feeling of abandonment in both young people and their parents.
