With the advent of the mobile phone, digital usage has become exponentially more prevalent, and addictions related to the use of social media, online gambling, online shopping, gaming, and other compulsions have all increased. In this age of 24-7 connectivity, there is an urgency for behavioral healthcare providers to develop approaches to treating digital addiction. Participants in this workshop will develop knowledge and skills that will increase their ability to assess and treat patients who present with internet and gaming addictions, as well as gain access to additional resources to help them continue improving competence in this area.
