Understanding Technology Addiction & Its Treatment

In 2018, the World Health Organization announced "gaming disorder" as a new mental health condition included in the 11th edition of its International Classification. 

Over 112 million Americans are online with that number expected to increase by 12 million in the next year and new estimates predict that nearly six percent or 11 million of those online users suffer from Internet addiction. The internet is an integral part of modern life and for most internet users its benefits far outweigh the adverse consequences secondary to excessive use. 

Technology addiction is a new phenomenon which many counselors are unaware of and subsequently unprepared to treat. Technology addiction is described as an impulse control disorder, which does not involve use of an intoxicating drug and is very similar to pathological gambling.   Mental health professionals need a basic understanding of technology addiction so that they can recognize it early and intervene appropriately. 

This workshop presents an overview of the etiological frameworks, assessment and treatments of technology addiction. 

 

  1. Explore how Big Tech has used neuroscience to trigger technology behavioral addiction.

  2. Examine the impact of technology on children and teens brains.

  3. Identify types of technology addiction.

  4. Explore the impact of computer gaming addiction on youth and adults.

  5. Assess for Internet Addiction with specialized evaluation instruments.

  6. Explore strategies for implementing a Digital Detox.

  7. Design a comprehensive treatment plan for the technology addicted client.
