  1. 1. TEMPORAL PRESENTATION OF SYMPTOMS OF INTERNET ADDICTION AMONG FILIPINO ADOLESCENTS USING THE ISIA IAT SCALE (presented at the 2nd annual convention of International Society of Internet Addiction at Seoul, South Korea held October 18, 2013) MILEN SANTIAGO RAMOS MA, MSC, PHD PHILIPPINES
  2. 2. The purpose of the study is to develop stages of symptoms of internet addiction as a reflection of development of pathology thereby aiding its recognition as a disorder.
  3. 3. Time related questionaires were taken from the assessment tool develop by International Society of Internet Addiction (ISIA) with reference to time. Portion of the questionnaire is focused on the symptom that develop after exposure of one (1) week (taken from PART 5 consisting of 20 items), two (2) weeks (taken from PART 7 consisting of 13 items ) three (3) months (taken from PART 4 consisting of 26 items) of the original ISIA internet addiction questionnaire
  4. 4. Internet addiction disorder (IAD) is excessive computer use that interferes with daily life. As defined by wikipedia.
  5. 5. IAD was originally proposed as a disorder in a satirical hoax by Ivan Goldberg, M.D., in 1995 He took pathological gambling as diagnosed by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV) as his model for the description of IAD. It is listed as a "condition for further study" in DSM-5 from 2013 (this year), but not recognized as a disorder.
  6. 6. CULLING OF DATA Responses of one thousand adolescents were used to determine which among the items in the time referenced questionaires will give statistically significant results One thousand (1000) answered questionaires was gathered by 10 students. Each handling 100 cases It is anticipated that not all 26 items from PART 4, not all 13 items from PART 7, and not all 20 items from PART 5 will give statistically significant result. It is expected to give out the best items /behavior that will characterize one week use, 2 weeks use as well as 3 months use of internet exposure.

  21. 21. CHARACTERIZATION OF THE STAGES Initial stage - affect is very much affected (i.e. crying spells, loss of appetite, talking less than usual, restlessness in sleep, talking less than usual – and also affecting the vegetative functions . NOTE: there is no mention here yet whatsoever of the internet Middle stage- executive function seems to be in distress (i.e. lack of concentration or restless ness, difficulties in keeping up with educational activities, difficulties in look after oneself or taking responsibility for one s independence Final stage- one s affective disposition and executive/decision making are down ….there is dependence ONLY on one thing …. Internet (i.e. feeling energized online, feeling life is joyless without the internet, staying online for longer and longer periods of time

  37. 37. THAT INTERNET ADDICTION IS NOT AN ILLUSION THAT INDICATORS ARE POINTING THAT IT IS A DISORDER WHICH HAS TO BE ADDRESSED AS IT CAN BE DEBILITATING ON THE PERSON IT AFFECTS BOTH THE AFFECTIVE AND EXECUTIVE FUNCTIONS OF THE PERSON WE STILL HAVE TO PROVE THAT THE BEHAVIOR HAS STRONG LINKAGE WITH THE EXISTENCE OF DELTA FOS B .., THE MOLECULAR SWITCH IN BEHAVIORAL ADDICTION (AS PURPORTED BY ERIC NESTLER) IN HUMANS BUT WE ARE GOING THERE… PROBABLY ON OUR NEXT CONFERENCE
  38. 38. my final note It would be interesting to collate data from other Asian countries which used the same questionaire to see if it will bring out the same or differing results. Section 3 of DSM5 listed internet gaming disorder as supported by the evidences coming from studies in the Asian region
