Autolesionism in adolescents, because it happens and how parents can help them? We interviewed a psychotherapist to talk about young and pain.

The chronicle case that sees as protagonists two guys from Cernusco on the Naviglio (MI), who have scoured the face to "test their pain threshold" opened new scenarios and a heated debate on why pre-adolescent and adolescents arrive at hurt with self-supporting acts and on what are the signs to look for, from the parents' point of view to investigate the Malexeri. Autolitionism in adolescents It is not a theme that can be deepened in a few beats and the individual case, that of the seventeen year old and the fourteen-year-old who scourished his face at the height of the lips (in a macabre connection with the character of Joker of Batman), is obviously generalizable. We talked about it with Matteo Lancini, Psychologist and psychotherapist and president of the Foundation Minotaur in Milan, to better understand the contours of this story. The conclusion of the expert we anticipate in the first joke, because it is fundamental: to understand the teenage children the only way is to open up to the listening of what they have to say, even if it hurts (parents first). In the history of the two boys of Cernusco, who first told to have been attacked and then to have tried almost for game to cut themselves, a little "to see the effect he does, the central word according to lancini And ache. An often silent suffering from those who proof, not recognized by those around him, in a hierarchy rising from the family of origin up to the political agenda that frames the category as not necessary for the economic aims of the country.

The Covid-19 has obviously amplified everything: the Lockdown has closed them at home, the didactic remotely separated them from their friends. In this context, episodes like that of Cernusco sul Naviglio can become systematic and not just an alarm bell. Here is what Matteo Lancini thinks about this interview in which we discussed with him about self-students in adolescents and his deep meanings. All to listen to.
