Course Description: Excessive use of the internet and video games has gained considerable attention in research and practice. The latest edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders-5th edition (DSM-V) has listed internet gaming disorder as a condition warranting further study, and the DSM-V task force has recommended further study of internet addiction. The current systematic literature review summarizes related treatment effectiveness and methodological concerns for current treatment options. Included studies were limited by methodological flaws including small sample sizes, lack of control groups, and little information on treatment adherence. Additionally, the lack of consistent definitions and established instruments for measuring internet gaming disorder and internet addiction makes it difficult to compare treatment effectiveness across studies. More research on the etiology and treatment of these conditions is needed.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Distinguish internet gaming disorder from internet addiction
  2. List three experimental treatments for internet gaming disorder and internet addiction
  3. Describe two methodological weaknesses of existing treatment options for internet gaming disorder and internet addiction
