Internet Addiction: A Logotherapeutic Approach
Didelot, Mary J.; Hollingsworth, Lisa; Buckenmeyer, Janet A.
Journal of Addictions & Offender Counseling, v33 n1 p18-33 Apr 2012
Internet addiction (IA) is both the most rapidly growing addiction and the least understood addiction (Watson, 2005). For counselors, treatment issues surrounding the disease are also growing. At the forefront is the lack of understanding concerning treatment protocol to manage the challenging recovery and maintenance stages after IA behavior has been controlled. The authors discuss Viktor Frankl's logotherapy as an effective approach to treating IA.
