Objectives
Narrative objectives1 The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the effectiveness of a combined approach using fictional narratives and dialogue on improving the profile of mood states, ,empathy of Hikikomori patients , as a primary endpoint. We set as secondary endpoint an improving in general mental health, relaxation and self esteem .We want to evaluate the overall efficacy on mental health and sociality of an exploratory program based on the use of fictional narratives and a constructed dialogue based on narrative therapy and cinema therapy . Due to the exploratory nature of the trial and the lack of previous researches we decided to set a variety of different outcomes .
We will explore if there is any difference on the dependent variables based on the use of animation versus
text reading of fictional narratives,secondarily. Further we want to know the relative efficacy of watching ,reading fictional narratives and dialogue on the selected outcomes.

Interventions/Control_1 Narrative club program A

A group receiving animation movie watching session and dialogue session .
Firstly an animated movie in which characters go though hardships and discover themselves able to overcome them will be used. The movie duration will be around 140 minutes.
