An overview of Assessment Approach towards Problematic use of Internet
Keywords: Assessment,Diagnosis,Problematic InternetUse.
AbstractThe concept of internet addiction is now widely discussed and being studied in various ways. There are works of literature that pioneer in defining the concept and deciding the future path of research. Among entities defined, video gaming has found a place in the DSM-5 as internet gaming disorder and in ICD-11 as gaming disorder and hazardous gaming. However, the concept of problematic internet use or internet addiction still needs sufficient evidence to be placed in diagnostic systems. Research is mainly focused on self-report assessment methods, and there is a lack of literature about basic clinical interviewing, establishing symptom criteria, severity and frequency thresholds, and assessing the impairments caused due to the clinical condition. This paper attempts to formulate an approach for detail clinical interviewing based on variables used in different studies
