A few words about bullying and psychologists

When you had a story of psychological and even physical harassment is always recommended, for the person who has been harassed, a course of emotional treatment with some experts. This was, therefore, my choice, as a victim of bullying and mobbing. I met a few people who paid attention to me: some of them, I believe, have also taken to heart my case. However, the attitude of a psychologist should always be objective, dispassionate, in some ways even detached: I certainly understand that this is normal. What I do not understand, in such cases- I mean in cases like mine – is a critical, judgmental, almost polemic approach against those who have suffered such violence. This is not to say that all psychologists are the same: far from it.

Poche parole sul bullismo e gli psicologi

Quando si ha alle spalle una storia di vessazioni psicologiche e anche fisiche si consiglia sempre, per la persona vessata, un percorso terapeutico con degli esperti. Questa è stata, quindi, la mia scelta, in quanto vittima di atti di bullismo e di mobbing.

Ho incontrato qualche persona che mi è stata a sentire: alcune di loro, credo, abbiano anche preso a cuore il mio caso. Tuttavia l’atteggiamento di uno psicologo deve sempre essere oggettivo, spassionato, per certi versi anche distaccato: certo comprendo che questo è nella norma.

A FOURTEEN YEAR OLD BOY HAS BEEN TORTURED IN NAPLES: HE WAS TOO FAT!

A fourteen year old boy, in Naples, has been the victim of a terrible abuse. The victim was in a car wash, to clean his own scooter. Three young men (twenty-four years old), who were there, began to tease the boy as “he was too fat”. One of the three executioners exclaimed: “We’re gonna blow you up, just like a ball!” Then they passed from words to deeds: one of them, Vincenzo Iacolare, took a compressed air gun, pulled down the teenager’s pants and blew air into the boy’s sphincter. This inconceivably violent gesture, this expression of inhuman ferocity, caused to the poor boy some serious intestinal injuries and the loss of much blood. After a very serious crisis, during which the health conditions of the boy seemed to be really worrying, the doctors of the Hospital, in Naples, informed that the patient has miraculously recovered.

UN QUATTORDICENNE SEVIZIATO A NAPOLI PERCHÉ TROPPO GRASSO

Un ragazzo di 14 anni, di Napoli, è stato fatto oggetto di sevizie atroci.

La vittima si trovava in un autolavaggio, per far pulire il proprio motorino. Tre ventiquattrenni che si trovavano lì hanno cominciato a canzonarlo, perché era troppo grasso.

Uno dei tre carnefici ha esclamato: “Ora ti gonfiamo come una palla!”. Subito dalle parole si è passati ai fatti: uno di loro, Vincenzo Iacolare, presa una pistola ad aria compressa, ha abbassato i pantaloni dell’adolescente e ha soffiato con la pistola ad aria compressa nello sfintere del ragazzo.

Questo gesto, di una violenza inaudita, di una ferocia inumana, ha provocato al ragazzo gravissime lesioni intestinali e la perdita di molto sangue. Il ragazzo è stato ricoverato in fin di vita all’ospedale di Napoli, ma dopo molto tempo, quando le speranze che si salvasse sembravano scarse, egli si è miracolosamente ripreso.
