The goal of this article is to investigate the Japanese phenomenon hikikomori. The symptoms of hikikomori are the result of dysfunctional mechanisms involving multiple levels: social, domestic and individual, and have to be framed in the individual history and framework contexts. Focus will be on the family and its functioning, taking in account Olson’s circumflexed model and using "Faces IV" as a tool. The objective is to verify the existence of correlation between family structure and symptom. The reference model is the systemic-relational one, with the ultimate goal of giving voice to the malaise experienced and broadening the observation field.
