Erika Pivetta – Internet Gaming Disorder in adolescence: investigating its risk and protective factors with a special focus on parental variables
mars 28 @ 10:30 - 12:00
Excessive gaming leading to personal and social impairment has been officially recognized as Internet Gaming Disorder (IGD) (APA, 2013; WHO, 2018). Since adolescents represent a high-risk category for the development of gaming-related problems (Sugaya et al., 2019), research examining the risk and protective factors underlying adolescent IGD is largely encouraged (Lopez-Fernandez & Kuss, 2020). To date, however, the majority of studies has focused on individual and social correlates, predominantly referred from an adolescents’ perspective.
The goal of this presentation is to provide novel findings on adolescent IGD by discussing recent research adopting more integrative and comprehensive approaches to shed new light on understudied mechanisms concerning family and parental factors. Following a brief presentation of myself to CARLA members and an introduction to the topic, I will illustrate a multi-level study on individual, parental and country-level predictors of the risk of problematic gaming among adolescents living in thirty European countries. I will then conclude by presenting the theoretical framework and preliminary results of an ongoing study involving Italian dyads composed of adolescents and their mothers which focuses on the association between maternal behaviours (warmth and indifference) and adolescent IGD.
