Computer and Internet Addiction: Analysis and Classification of Approaches

Zaretskaya O.V., Graduate student of the Faculty of Social Psychology of the Department of Theoretical Foundations of Social Psychology, Moscow State University of Psychology and Education, Moscow, Russia, ovzaretskaya@mail.ru
Abstract
The theoretical analysis of modern research works on the problem of computer and Internet addiction is carried out. The main features of different approaches are outlined. The attempt is made to systematize researches conducted and to classify scientific approaches to the problem of Internet addiction. The author distinguishes nosological, cognitive-behavioral, sociopsychological and dialectical approaches. She justifies the need to use an approach that corresponds to the essence, goals and tasks of social psychology in the field of research as the problem of Internet addiction, and the dependent behavior in general. In the opinion of the author, this dialectical approach integrates the experience of research within the framework of the socio-psychological approach and focuses on the observed inconsistencies in the phenomenon of Internet addiction – the compensatory nature of Internet activity, when people who are interested in the Internet are in a dysfunctional life situation.

Keywords: Internet addiction, computer games, online games, Internet activity, psychological dependence, dependent behavior, psychology of dependence.

Column: Clinical psychokogy and special needs
