Current prevention strategies and future directions for problem Internet use
There has been increasing interest in problem Internet use in the past five years, particularly in the areas of video gaming and screen use. Social cognitive approaches to prevention are more common than those that target multiple stakeholder groups and take into consideration the geopolitical–cultural aspect of the problem behavior. Additionally, there is a lack of randomized controlled trials and empirical research on this topic. Younger populations are typically studied with a focus on school-based interventions. Tailored programs that require active engagement should be developed and assessed for long-term efficacy with cost-efficiency in mind. Holistic programs that create change in a culture or society without restricting individual choices may also be beneficial in preventing problem Internet use.
