Psychological, Social, and Cultural Aspects of Internet Addiction
A great book on Internet addiction edited by Dr. Bahadir Bozoglan will be published in December 2017. Together with two other colleagues, I will be contributing to this book with two unique chapters on Internet addiction.
A brief description of the book titled “Psychological, Social, and Cultural Aspects of Internet Addiction” is provided below:
Addiction is a powerful and destructive condition impacting large portions of the population around the world. While typically associated with substances, such as drugs and alcohol, technology and internet addiction have become a concern in recent years as technology use has become ubiquitous.
Psychological, Social, and Cultural Aspects of Internet Addiction is a critical scholarly resource that sheds light on the relationship between psycho-social variables and internet addiction. Featuring coverage on a broad range of topics such as human-computer interaction, academic performance, and online behavior, this book is geared towards psychologists, counselors, graduate-level students, and researchers studying psychology and technology use.
The topics covered by the book are outlined below:
- Academic Performance
- Attention Deficit Disorder
- Human-Computer Interaction
- Low Family Factors
- Online Behavior
- Psycho-Social Variables
- Stress and Internet Addiction
More information about the book can be found on its website (click here). I will let you know once the book is finalised and published.
