Learning to deal with Problematic Usage of the Internet
A book written for the public, edited by the COST Action CA16207 in collaboration with the International College of Obsessive Compulsive Spectrum Disorders (ICOCS) and the International Obsessive Compulsive and Related Disorders Research Network of the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (OCRN-ECNP). This imaginatively presented book, written by international experts, presents a concise and up to date explanation of the field, describing how to recognise the most common types of problem, current scientific theories about the causes of problematic Internet usage as well as suggestions on how those struggling to control Internet use might deal with these issues, from a lay perspective. The section on ‘top tips’ for parents will be of particular interest to families coming to terms with Problematic Usage of the Internet.
This publication is based upon work from COST Action CA 16207, supported by COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology), linked to the Project “European Research Network into Problematic Usage of the Internet” (EU-PUI) and funded by the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme of the European Union in collaboration with: the International College of Obsessive-Compulsive Spectrum Disorders (ICOCS) and the Obsessive Compulsive and Related Disorders Research Network (OCRN) of the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP), and the Anxiety and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders Scientific Section of the World Psychiatric Association (WPA).
