About the Course:
Problematic internet use (PIU) is a topic of increasing concern among psychologists and other mental health providers. Previous research studies have established links between PIU and both internalizing and externalizing problems. The study described in this article/course was conducted in order to increase understanding of psychiatric diagnostic profiles associated with the issue of problematic internet use, as well as its unique contributions to impairment. This study utilized the resources of the large-scale Child Mind Institute Healthy Brain Network, a transdiagnostic self-referred, community sample of children and adolescents (ages 5–21), in order to examine the associations between PIU and psychopathology, general impairment, physical health, and sleep disturbances. This course will discuss the background and previous research regarding the issue of problematic internet use, the results and implications of the current study, limitations of the current study, and recommendations for future research.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Problematic Internet Use in Children and Adolescents created by Anita Restrepo et al. in 2020.
