Motivational brief interventions for adolescents and young adults with Internet use disorders: A randomized-controlled trial
2022, Journal of Behavioral Addictions
Adolescents and young adults (AYA) have an increased risk for Internet use disorders (IUD) compared to older individuals that may lead to functional impairments in daily life. To date, evidence-based brief interventions are lacking. This study aimed to test the efficacy of a low-threshold counseling approach based on Motivational Interviewing (MI) in a vocational school setting.
