Book Description :

Introduction: Our development and clinical use of a novel self-report questionnaire in the Los Angeles San Fernando Child and Family Mental Health Clinic, The Video Game Initial Questionnaire (VGIQ), shows that a key element of impairment related to excessive internet gaming and on-line activities in youth is sleep disruption (Pataki et al., 2019). Sleep can be compromised due to post-bedtime on-line usage, particularly when parents are asleep (Pataki et al., 2019). As a result of chronic fatigue in youth, many daytime activities can be negatively affected. In fact, every clinic patient who completed the VGIQ reported that video game use interfered with homework, relationships, school achievement and/or sleep. A new disorder u201c Internet Gaming Disorderu201d (Gentile et al., 2016, Paulus et al., 2018, ICD 11, 2018), has been introduced characterized by a preoccupation with games, deceiving others as to how much time is spent playing, irritability or sadness when gaming is restricted, compromised relationships and continued excessive game use despite awareness of impairment. Given the many negative impacts of internet over-use, our clinicians now include a careful review of sleep habits, and then provide parents with interventions to monitor and decrease night-time game playing and thereby improve childrenu2019s sleep. The gap between youth and parental knowledge of technology was noted to be a risk factor for excessive night-time gaming. Sleep disruption may be an early marker of problem behavior where intervention can make a critical first step in improvement of childu2019s overall functioning. Objectives: 1) To present ways to help parents identify their childrenu2019s actual video game play time, after bedtime play and hours of sleep.2) To provide parents with a better awareness of 24-hour availability of electronic entertainment so they can better monitor and limit gaming behaviors. 3) To provide clinicians with information to become more effective with families to understand, monitor, and decrease gaming play time in youth, in order to prevent Internet Gaming Disorder and protect daytime overall functioning Method : Clinic patients presenting with sleep disturbance related to excessive gaming meet with clinicians individually and together with their parents in order to elicit sleep habits and hygiene, total number of hours the child is playing games and hours spent playing without parental knowledge when parents are asleep. Behavioral strategies are presented for parents to implement in order to decrease the number of hours their child is game- playing, and to increase sleep time. Improved understanding of the u201celectronic divideu201d between parents and children as well as improved clinician awareness is discussed.CONCLUSIONS: 1) Parents can successfully work with their children and clinicians in therapeutic sessions to elicit unknown information regarding their childu2019s video game usage and habits and their disturbances due to nighttime playing. 2) Sleep disruption associated with excessive gaming in youth at night may be an initial marker of future developing impairment in school, family and peer relationships.3) When sleep disruption has come to light, early intervention by parents, patients and clinicians to implement effective and practical tools to limit late night gaming and improve childrenu2019s sleep may lead to protection and improvement of overall function in a new and changing electronic world.

Book Description :

Video game addiction is the latest behavioral process disorder. While it is similar to substance misuse disorders and problematic gambling, little is known about pathology and almost nothing about treatment. It was added to the latest version of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11), which resulted in headline news around the world in June of 2018. It is expected that it will be added the next version of the DSM (DSM 5.1), the mental health diagnostic book that is used in the United States. To put the gaming industry in perspective, consider that worldwide revenue for McDonalds was $22 billion in 2017. U.S. only revenue from video games in 2018 is projected to be $30 billion. Furthermore, very few non-gamers know about loot boxes. These are boxes/chests in games that one can spend money on in order to acquire desired items. Loot boxes are cheaper than most desired items in the box, so players are hoping that it contains what they want (it usually doesn't). The authors view loot boxes as gambling, as do some European governments. We believe that loot boxes are priming a few generations for gambling problems. This book examines the history of gaming and then devotes individual chapters to gaming in the United States and several Asian countries. Since video games emerged as a public health crisis in South Korean, Japan, China and Thailand about a decade earlier than the United States, there is much we can learn from their research and actions. We explain the psychology of game design and how manufacturers intentionally made games to be addictive. There is a chapter on how to recognize or diagnose video game addiction, and there is the horrifying and moving story of a young man who has been abstinent from video games for over three years. The book concludes with recommendations for parents, researchers, clinicians, educators and policy makers.

The main study findings reveal a prevalence of Internet Gaming Disorder (IGD of 0% (n=101) for the ES sample, and .8% (n=1) for the CMS sample. As another main study finding, for the CMS sample, participants met more DSM-5 criteria for IGD (out of the 9 total criteria), when they were male, experienced anxiety in the past year, and were engaged in more violence due to gaming. For the ES sample, study participants met more DSM-5 criteria for IGD (out of the 9 total criteria), when they did not have a partner, had a higher income, were engaged in more violence due to gaming, engaged in a higher level of help seeking for personal/emotional support, and had a lower level of perceived social support. In essence, this constitutes the provision of risk profiles and descriptions of those most vulnerable to IGD. This study contributes to those efforts to conduct research on the DSM-5 criteria for IGD (APA, 2013).

Book Description :

Introduction: The Internet Gaming Disorder Scale-Short-Form (IGDS9-SF) is a scale that aims to assess the severity as well as the harmful effects and / or consequences of excessive online and offline gaming. Its brevity and theoretical foundation in accordance with the current diagnostic criteria of the game disorders have made it a useful resource for use in clinical and screening contexts. Objective: To present the process of cross-cultural adaptation of the IGDS9-SF to the Brazilian context. Methods: Transcultural adaptation involved the steps of independent translation of the instrument, synthesis version, back translation and elaboration of the final version. The evaluation of content validity was performed by a multidisciplinary committee of experts and consisted of both a quantitative analysis (calculation of content validation coefficient / CVC) and qualitative evaluation of the comments and suggestions of the specialists. Results: the transcultural adaptation of the scale was according to the protocol adopted and the CVC was satisfactory (u2265 0.83) for all structures and equivalences evaluated. Most of the suggestions of the specialists were accepted, the main ones related to adjustments and standardization of the spelling. Discussion: The Brazilian version of IGDS9-SF showed adequate content validity and its adapted version for Brazil is available for use by researchers and clinicians, as well as for testing of other psychometric qualities.

Book Description :

Some classes of behaviors, including gambling, Internet gaming, and sexual behaviors, may lead to compulsive engagement for a minority of individuals. In extreme cases where individuals may feel unable to control these behaviors without external influence, these behaviors may be considered non-substance or behavioral addictions. Many such behaviors may occur predominantly online, such as gaming, social media, shopping, and pornography, and may be driven by constant accessibility via smartphone and other mobile device technologies. This Research Topic presents diverse papers on neurobiological evidence of behavioral addictions, encompassing gambling disorder, Internet-based disorders, including Internet gaming disorder and smartphone addiction, and compulsive sexual behaviors.

Book Description :

Internet use-related addiction problems (e.g., Internet addiction, problem mobile phone use, problem gaming, and social networking) have been defined according to the same core element: the addictive symptomatology presented by individuals who excessively and problematically behave using the technology. Online activity is the most important factor in their lives, causing them the loss of control by stress and difficulties in managing at least one aspect of their daily life, affecting users’ wellbeing and health. In 2018, Gaming Disorder was included as a mental disease in the 11th Revision of the International Classification of Diseases by the World Health Organization. In 2013, the American Psychiatric Association requested additional research on Internet Gaming Disorder. The papers contained in this e-Book provide unique and original perspectives on the concept, development, and early detection of the prevention of these health problems. They are diverse in the nature of the problems they deal with, methodologies, populations, cultures, and contain insights and a clear indication of the impact of individual, social, and environmental factors on Internet use-related addiction problems. The e-Book illustrates recent progress in the evolution of research, with great emphasis on gaming and smartphone problems, signaling areas in which research would be useful, even cross-culturally.

Book Description :

The Behavioral Addictions is the first American Psychiatric Publishing title to explore the diagnosis and treatment of patients who suffer from behavioral addictions, extreme forms of which share specific characteristics with severe forms of substance use disorders. These characteristics include tolerance (the need to use the substance or perform the troublesome behavior at higher doses, or more and more frequently, in order to achieve the same effect); withdrawal (feelings of restlessness, irritability, and discontent following abrupt discontinuation of the substance or the behavior); obsessive thinking and planning that block out anything other than obtaining or engaging in the addictive agent or behavior; and accompanying external consequences in related to finances, health, interpersonal relationships, legal affairs, etc. Although not all behavioral addictions are currently recognized as such by DSM-5, both substances and behaviors can hijack a person's pleasure-and-reward brain circuitry, causing great suffering. This case-based volume is practical and engaging and offers many features that make it not only informative but also accessible and entertaining: Behaviors covered, both those widely recognized and those less commonly accepted, involve exercise, food, gambling, Internet gaming, Internet surfing, kleptomania, love, sex, shopping, work, tanning, and e-mailing/texting. Introductory chapters discuss the relationship of behavioral or process addictions to substance use disorders across many spheres, and they provide an overview of the behavioral addictions from neurobiological, theoretical, clinical, and forensic perspectives. Gambling disorder is now classified in DSM-5 as a behavioral addiction, lending credence to the construct of behavioral addictions and providing precedent for future consideration of other behavioral addictions, such as those highlighted in the volume. Each chapter focuses on a real-life case study of a patient with a behavioral addiction. Videos that accompany the volume demonstrate encounters between a clinician and a patient exhibiting an addiction. This puts material on assessment, treatment, etc. into a real-world context. Key points for review and multiple-choice questions are included at the end of each chapter. Not simply an exaggeration of everyday social and personal ailments, these behavioral conditions present clinicians with unique and poorly researched challenges in everyday clinical practice. The Behavioral Addictions helps the reader to determine not only where to draw the line between healthy and unhealthy levels of participation in a behavior, but also how to intervene in ways that are therapeutic, effective, and evidence-based.
