调查:图片共享软件加剧青少年自虐行为

2014-01-28    来源:MailOnline    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

据英国《每日邮报》报道,心理健康专家指出,多款图片共享应用软件为青少年发布自虐照片提供了平台,严重影响未成年人的身心健康。加拿大青少年心理健康机构Mindful近日通过调查发现,以Instagram和Snapchat为代表的多款图片共享软件正在成为未成年人发布和分享自虐、不雅照片的集散地。

在这些共享软件中,越来越多的年轻人开始倾向于发布残忍的自虐照和暴露的不雅照来吸引粉丝的眼球,彰显自己的与众不同。甚至有些孩子在看到这些照片时产生了攀比心理,从而做出更暴力、更夸张的举动。另外,像Snapchat这类拥有“阅后即焚”功能的软件,信息会按照用户的设置在1到10秒之内自动消失,致使网络上无法留下任何痕迹,父母们也无从调查。

Mindful负责人弗朗西斯•巴罗斯表示,这类图片共享软件为年轻人互相发送和传播不雅照片提供了平台,导致自虐、自残等现象日益普遍。有数据显示,近年来英国青少年自虐案件频发,因自虐住进医院的年轻人数量比往年上涨了近10%。


Soaring numbers of young people are posting self-harming 'selfies' online due to the rise in popularity of apps such as Instagram and Snapchat.

Mental health charities say the disturbing trend is occurring because of the ease of accessing the sites through smartphones.

They add that many young people also feel they have 'no one else to turn to'.

The issue was raised on ITV's This Morning as part of a self-harm awareness slot. Recent official statistics have shown the number of teens admitted to hospital because of self-harm has risen by 10 per cent.

Franki Eaton, 25, who has been self-harming for 11 years, appeared on the show.
She told Holly Willougby and Phillip Schofield that she self-harmed as a form of 'release' and that the pain would 'shock' her out of feeling low.

Francis Burrows, operations director of the charity Mindfull, told MailOnline that apps such as Instagram and Snapchat had made self-harming selfies an emerging and worrying phenomenon.


He said: 'These apps provide a place where people can post images and then have others comment on them.

'And these images can have a profound effect on people. They see what other people have done and it gives them validation to do the same.
'Most people look at these images and are shocked - but for these young people it can become competitive.

'They look at an image and think "they've cut deeper" than me - and then think they must do it. It's rather like the "thinspiration" sites - but these apps make everything more instant.'

But there is an added, more sinister angle.

'Sadly, this can lead to posts encouraging them to harm themselves more. Schools are coming to us saying they have a problem but don’t know how to address it.'

Mr Burrows said: 'But it can go the other way, too, where they are bullied or trolled because of their pictures. this then turns into a vicious cycle where they self-harm even more.
He urged isolated self-harmers to contact the charity for help rather than using apps.

'If you seek help, we can put you in touch with a counsellor and get help.
'The kids who come to us talk about exam pressure, family problems, bullying, low level depression, anxiety.'(MailOnline)
