A Handbook and Guide to Evaluation and Treatment

Internet Addiction: A Handbook and Guide to Evaluation and
Treatment

"This book provides cutting-edge coverage by expanding the field
to include specific problems such as online gaming, cybersex
addiction, and gambling addiction. Its extensive attention to
dealing with adolescents is essential, given the rapid rise in
media and technology use by both Net Generation young adults and
iGeneration teenagers. I am thrilled to have this invaluable,
comprehensive, well-written resource for my own work and recommend
it to people who need to understand this unique form of
addiction."

?Dr. Larry Rosen, Past Chair and Professor of
Psychology at California State University, Dominguez Hills, author
of Rewired: Understanding the iGeneration and the Way They
Learn
and Me, MySpace, and I: Parenting the Net
Generation


"Our clients come to us when online pornography, video gaming,
social networking, gambling, and surfing create untenable
disruptions in their lives. If we do not understand what we are
seeing and how to address it, we will not be able to provide the
help they need. This book provides the practical information
clinicians can use to assess and treat this growing problem."

?Hilarie Cash, PhD, coauthor of Video Games and Your
Kids: How Parents Stay in Control, and cofounder of reSTART:
Internet Addiction Recovery Program


"Internet Addiction: A Handbook and Guide to Evaluation and
Treatment
provides an integrated and current overview of the
different types of Internet addiction-gaming addiction, gambling
addiction, and cybersex addiction. The authors deserve ample praise
in providing such a comprehensive and informative guide for
Internet addiction."

?Ran Tao, MD, Professor and Director, and Xiuqin
Huang, MD, Associate Professor, Treatment Center for Internet
Addiction, General Hospital of Beijing Military Region, China
