Technology is ubiquitous in today’s society and many can engage with technology without experiencing problems. A subset of individuals, however, may find various forms of online behaviors to become compulsive, out of control, and lead to negative consequences. The purpose of this presentation is to prepare clinicians to work with internet-based behavioral addictions, including internet gaming, internet pornography and cybersex, social media use, and online gambling and sports betting. Specifically, attendees will learn how to conceptualize internet-based behavioral addictions, recognize these behavioral addictions in their clinical work, understand relevant neuroscience related to addictive behaviors, and become knowledgeable of treatment considerations for internet based behavioral addictions.  

Amanda L. Giordano, PhD, LPC is an associate professor at the University of Georgia who specializes in addictions counseling. She is the sole author of a clinical reference book titled, A Clinical Guide to Treating Behavioral Addictions and co-author of a textbook titled, Addiction Counseling: A Practical Approach.
