This study explores psychological trauma as a reason for computer game addiction among adolescents. The findings of this study show that there is a connection between psychological trauma and computer game addiction. Some psychologists note that the main cause of any type of addiction derives from psychological trauma, and that finding such underlying causes can help understand the particular need to gamble. The strong connection between computer game addiction and psychological trauma shown in this study can have a significant impact on adolescents' personal growth.
