Improving the understanding of binge-watching behavior: An exploration of its underlying psychological processes
The advent of the digital age with its progress in on-demand viewing technology has been associated in recent years with a dramatic increase in binge-watching (i.e., watching multiple episodes of TV series in one session). Nevertheless, along with its massive rise has come concerns about the associated mental and physical health outcomes, with initial studies assuming its addictive nature at a time when the psychological investigation of this behavior only remained in its infancy.
This presentation will outline the main findings of a recent doctoral research aimed at clarifying the psychological processes involved in binge-watching development and maintenance. Such results allowed for important insights into the heterogeneous and complex nature of binge-watching, as well as into the understanding of what specifically drives this unique behavior, and how and under what circumstances it may become problematic.
