Internet addiction is an emergent disorder in the psychiatric and psychological fields. This book provides a theoretical framework to understand how to define and conceptualize compulsive use of the Internet from a clinical perspective. With various theoretical models from the psychiatric, psychological, communication, and sociological fields, it explores the prevalence of the disorder and the most addictive or problematic online applications, such as online pornography, Internet gambling, and online games. Evidenced-based treatment approaches are provided as well. A must-have for every clinician.
Dr. Kimberly S. Young, PsyD, is the primary researcher to have brought clinical attention to the issue of problematic Internet use in 1996. She is also the author of Caught in the Net, the first book to address Internet addiction. Dr. Cristiano Nabuco de Abreu is the director of the Ambulatorio Integrado dos Transtornos do Impulso (Integrated Impluse Disorders Outpatient Unit) at the University of San Paulo.
