The Internet Addiction Toolkit is designed for counselors and therapists from a variety of backgrounds. It is a comprehensive training program with key features such as assessment tools, handouts, research articles, and worksheets that you can integrate into your counseling practice. I developed the program because I received questions from so many health and mental practitioners asking how they can build an Internet addiction program in their own practice or agency. It is understandable that Internet addiction is such a new condition that standard credentials and training certification are not available.
The worry in the field is that counselors were handing shingles saying that they were trained in Internet addiction recovery techniques but really did not have any evidenced-based training with this client population. Internet addiction is unique compared to recovery from substance abuse and dependence.
Restore Recovery is the only therapy based on evidenced-based treatment outcomes. It uses CBT-IA, my empirical therapy model that has been tested in research studies that shows patients are able to apply the model to their daily use of technology to find balanced and moderate ways of using it. Studies show that even after post-therapy checkups, patients are able to maintain sobriety and abstinence from problem online Apps and sites up six months after treatment.
Based on 20 years of research in the field, the Internet Addiction Toolkit shows you:
- How to diagnose Internet addiction with specialized assessment tools.
- How Internet addiction relates to co-occurring conditions and mood disorders.
- The relationship between chemical dependency and problematic Internet use.
- How to promote healthy strategies to increase social activities for clients.
- How to develop a comprehensive psychosocial treatment plan.
- How to deal online sex addiction in marriage counseling and family therapy.
- How to help clients avoid relapse.
- How to evaluate success to either maintain or change treatment goals.
