Internet Addiction

Daria J. Kuss and Halley M. Pontes

Hogrefe Publishing


79 pages


Advances in Psychotherapy: Evidence-Based Practice; Volume 41


Internet addition entered the medical lexicon during the middle 1990s in response to growing concern that the Internet may have detrimental and addicting effects on some people, say Kuss and Pontes. They discuss the nature of Internet addiction, including its terminology, definition, motivational factors, epidemiological status, potential risk factors, and methods for treating it. Writing for professionals, academics, and researchers working in the field, they combine recent research evidence with practical guides for how to run clinical and psychotherapeutic sessions using an evidence-based treatment approach. The book and online test can provide continuing education credits. (Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
