Internet Addiction Screening

The Internet Addiction Screening interview is a telephonic session for assessing if an online user or loved one suffers from an Internet Addiction.

Hudson Valley, New York (PRWEB) June 17, 2013

Internet Addiction and Internet Use Gaming Disorder are synonyms describing an online users potential to become compulsive dependent upon the internet and other forms of Information and Communications Technology. Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D., a New York State licensed psychologist and author of the Information Age Forensics construct, iPredator, has developed a diagnostic screening tool, Internet Addiction Risk Checklist (IARC), to assess if a child or adult online user is engaging in pathological internet use. Along with the IARC, if previously completed, Dr. Nuccitelli conducts telephonic internet addiction screenings offering his professional advice on an effective course of action.

Although there is an ongoing controversy among healthcare professionals and organizations regarding the existence of a formal internet addiction disorder, the reality is a growing number of online users are experiencing signs and symptoms suggestive of a an Information and Communications Technology (ICT) compulsive dependency. These negative consequences are problematic, self-destructive and harmful to the afflicted online user’s loved ones, peers and associates.

The cost of a Telephonic Internet Addiction Screening (TIAS) is $200.00 (USD), takes 60-90 minutes to complete and includes all follow-up contacts. Given that healthcare has yet to agree upon a formal definition or even the existence of an Internet Addiction Disorder, provided here is Dr. Nuccitelli’s 2013 Internet Abuse and Internet Dependence definitions.

Internet Abuse: Internet Abuse is an umbrella concept defining a child or adult’s compulsive and progressive abuse of the internet and electronic devices designed to obtain, exchange or disseminate information. Although the internet is the predominate arena in which Internet Abuse takes place, electronic devices and communications channels not internet enabled are also included in the definition. Internet Abuse causes dysfunctional cognitive, affective, behavioral & perceptual intrapersonal consequences accompanied with employment, academic, familial, peer & intimate partner interpersonal consequences.

On a continuum of severity, ranging from absent to mild, cessation of internet and/or electronic device usage causes withdrawal symptomology, psychological and/or physiological, combined with perceptual tolerance. Also on a continuum of severity, internet abusive online users engage in criminal, deviant and/or deceptive online activities ranging from absent to severe.

Internet Dependence: Internet Dependence is an umbrella concept defining a child or adult’s compulsive and progressive dependency upon the internet and electronic devices designed to obtain, exchange or disseminate information. Although the internet is the predominate arena in which Internet Dependence takes place, electronic devices and communications channels not internet enabled are also included in the definition. Internet Dependence causes dysfunctional cognitive, affective, behavioral & perceptual intrapersonal consequences accompanied with employment, academic, familial, peer & intimate partner interpersonal consequences.

On a continuum of severity, ranging from mild to severe, cessation of internet and/or electronic device usage causes withdrawal symptomology, psychological and/or physiological, combined with perceptual tolerance. Also on a continuum of severity, internet dependent online users engage in criminal, deviant and/or deceptive online activities ranging from mild to severe.
