About Yuichi Hattori
Yuichi Hattori is a psychologist in private practice in Sayama City, Saitama, Japan.
He also resides in Hacienda Heights, California. His alternating residences between Japan and the US have been contributing to his cross-cultural perspectives of hikikomori.
Japanese Wikipedia introduces Yuichi Hattori as an expert in dissociative identity disorder (formally called “multiple personality disorder”) and hikikomori, and as a Christian publicly stating “Jesus Christ is no doubt the son of God.”
He lectured the classes of introductory psychology, multiple personality, and mind control techniques of cults at Science University of Tokyo from 1993 to 2001.
He gained MA and BA in psychology from California State University, Los Angeles.
