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.

Book Description :

The purpose of this research is to evaluate the relationships between Internet Gaming Disorder (IGD) and several predictors and outcomes of mental health, physical health, comorbidities, and daily functioning. With the recent establishment of psychometrically valid and reliable tools to measure IGD, and the inclusion of the disorder in Section 3 the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorder, 5th Edition, it is necessary to find psychological risk factors that contribute to the development and maintenance of the disorder. This research will specifically focus on the daily use of gaming as a positive or negative influence of satisfaction with life, with the goal of identifying risk factors related to IGD. Furthermore, the present study will include functional consequences of Internet gaming that are related to both psychological and physiological domains. The current body of literature describing IGD includes correlational designs regarding comorbid substance use, largely related to Internet Addiction rather than the specific domain of Internet gaming. In addition, methodological issues related to the measurement of IGD and the appropriate target population have raised questions regarding the validity of studies on concurrent use. Two major study aims will be addressed by the proposed study. First, individual factors that relate to negative or positive outcomes of gaming use will be evaluated by studying the effect of gaming on daily life satisfaction. Post-gaming mood will also be evaluated as it relates to individual-level depression and daily predictors of depression and affect. Second, functional consequences and substance use comorbidities will be evaluated.

Book Description :

The increasing risk of excessive gaming and its negative impacts are the reason that World Health Organization (WHO) included gaming disorder into ICD-11 for diagnostic purposes and treatment planning. In the last decade, excessive video game use has become a serious problem that affects the everyday lives of many people. The continuous gaming behavior, regardless of potential negative consequences of video games themselves, may lead to severe impairment in their daily functioning. However, game addiction is not yet recognized by the American Psychological Association (APA) as a diagnosable disorder because of a lack of consensus on the etiology, symptomatology, and consequences of gaming addiction. The current study aims to identify the potential risk factors of internet gaming disorder (IGD) concerning pscyhopathology, impulsivity, social relationships, and neuropsychological functioning. Eighty individuals aged 18-59 were recruited for this study. Participants were asked to complete a series of self-reported questionnaires and perform a battery of neuropsychological tests. Results showed that elevated IGD symptoms were significantly associated with increased levels of depression and anxiety, and with decreased levels of social support. Additionally, participants with higher levels of IGD symptoms showed faster reaction time on the anti-saccade task. Other relationships between neuropsychological tests and IGD score were not significant. Regression analyses indicated that depression is a strong predictor of IGD. Further research is needed to understand the online/video gaming motivation in different populations and the neurological function in the development of IGD in order to develop a therapeutic treatment and possible prevention of IGD.

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 Internet Gaming Disorder, as seen in the DSM (2013) and now validated as a disease by the ICD-11 (2018), has been little investigated by psychoanalysis. The compulsive gaming and addictive behavior provides a significant distress in the individualu2019s everyday life, where the loss of control, escape from reality and social impairments are common symptoms. Objective: we aimed our research at unveiling the development of its suffering organization. Methodology: Here, we present one of the crucial cases discoveries from a compulsive online gamer based on the ongoing netnography (Kozinets, 2015) research that has been conducted with Brazilians young adults. For the data gathering we performed a netnography interview using the psychoanalytic discourse (Lacan, 1957/1998) as our canvas and as a method to interpret its results. Results: Our findings point to the role of the ideal ego in gaming, where the subject tries to reach the narcissistic ideal self again, as once supposed by its parents, in single or multiplayer games. In case of this specific subject, complementary to his imaginary suffering, the compulsive gaming got chronic after a disappointment in the subjectu2019s dream job, in which he failed. His supposed-to-have set of skills were not enough for his tutor to acknowledge and recognize him as what he believed he was and intended to be. Nonetheless, the saga that he often lives throughout the narrative of the games makes a fertile soil for his symbolic fantasy to occur, as the recurrent gaming makes it possible for the compulsion to repeat and take place, making a secondary gain effect to subjectsu2019 life by relieving negative feelings. Conclusion: We conclude that, first, the imaginary realm is very appealing to gaming compulsion, since it makes it possible for the subject to see himself projected as the ideal ego, and it is made chronic when things do not go the way he desires in real life. Secondly, that the game is a fertile place for the compulsion of repetition to take place. We hope that this case report stimulates research in the Freudian field on compulsive gaming and that its finds benefit others to enhanced comprehend and treatment.

Book Description :

Over 90% of children and adolescents play electronic or computerized games, and 25% play for three hours a day or even longer. Although some degree of video game playing is normal, excessive playing can negatively impact schoolwork, kids' social lives, and even their health. Pause and Reset is aimed at parents concerned about the role of gaming in their children's lives. In this informative, reader-friendly book, addiction expert Dr. Nancy Petry sheds light on what constitutes problematic video gaming and what does not, how to determine whether a child, adolescent or young adult may be "addicted" to gaming or developing problems with it, and when to seek professional help. Setting this book apart from others on the subject, the author also provides accessible explanations of the latest science behind how gaming addiction impacts children, adolescents, and families; she also explores the question of whether gaming may have positive effects in certain situations. Finally, Dr. Petry offers three simple, easy-to-implement steps parents can take to reduce and reverse the harmful effects of gaming: Record, Replace, and Reward. Pause and Reset also provides exercises and worksheets to support parents' efforts to help their kids.
