• Description : Internet addiction is a very real threat. Do you find yourself struggling to break free from TV or social media? Do you wish you didn't waste so much time online? Does your family suffer because of time that you are "away" from them, even if you are in the same room? Do you need help to break free? "Digital Addiction: Breaking Free from the Shackles of the Internet, TV and Social Media" will educate you, inspire you and release you from this bondage. Millions of people are caught in the web of digital addiction, whether it is a phone, tablet, TV, gaming device or social media. It is changing everything about people's social interaction and it has largely been ignored. In this very powerful read, Lora Ziebro unpacks how digital distractions have robbed all of us of precious time. She shows how much time we have sacrificed and what we can do to regain it for ourselves and for those we love. She wrote this book after going to dinner one night and noticing that almost everyone around her was on their cell phones. She saw that no one seemed to be having real interaction with each other and she realized that this same problem was present, at times, in her own life. She understood the need for a book that didn't just inform, but also helped families get stronger. That was the birth of "Digital Addiction: Breaking Free from the Shackles of the Internet, TV and Social Media". This book will change the way you think about the Internet and digital will call you to a place of freedom where you can experience true, deep and lasting relationships with those who matter the most.

• Description : Video games can be quite entertaining for children as well as the whole family, given the right circumstances. Studies have shown that kids who play certain kind of games appropriate to their age at moderate levels suffer from little to no harm at all. However, when a child becomes more engrossed in video games than other interests, it's easy to become concerned as a parent, especially if the obsession lasts longer than what might be considered just a 'passing phase.' As you probably already know, video game addiction is a real problem, with real consequences. This book was written to help you identify whether your child is suffering from an actual addiction, or whether he or she is simply passionate about playing video games. You will be provided with practical insight into properly addressing your child's current level of exposure to video games, thereby preventing or remedying a possible addiction. Much like other types of addictions, approaching the situation appropriately is crucial because taking the wrong approach could prove to be just as problematic as the addiction itself. The good news is, no matter how far along the addiction is, there are numerous ways to intervene and get your child back on the right path. So what are you waiting for?

• Description : This new edition of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5®), used by clinicians and researchers to diagnose and classify mental disorders, is the product of more than 10 years of effort by hundreds of international experts in all aspects of mental health. Their dedication and hard work have yielded an authoritative volume that defines and classifies mental disorders in order to improve diagnoses, treatment, and research. The criteria are concise and explicit, intended to facilitate an objective assessment of symptom presentations in a variety of clinical settings -- inpatient, outpatient, partial hospital, consultation-liaison, clinical, private practice, and primary care. New features and enhancements make DSM-5® easier to use across all settings: The chapter organization reflects a lifespan approach, with disorders typically diagnosed in childhood (such as neurodevelopmental disorders) at the beginning of the manual, and those more typical of older adults (such as neurocognitive disorders) placed at the end. Also included are age-related factors specific to diagnosis. The latest findings in neuroimaging and genetics have been integrated into each disorder along with gender and cultural considerations. The revised organizational structure recognizes symptoms that span multiple diagnostic categories, providing new clinical insight in diagnosis. Specific criteria have been streamlined, consolidated, or clarified to be consistent with clinical practice (including the consolidation of autism disorder, Asperger's syndrome, and pervasive developmental disorder into autism spectrum disorder; the streamlined classification of bipolar and depressive disorders; the restructuring of substance use disorders for consistency and clarity; and the enhanced specificity for major and mild neurocognitive disorders). Dimensional assessments for research and validation of clinical results have been provided. Both ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM codes are included for each disorder, and the organizational structure is consistent with the new ICD-11 in development. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition, is the most comprehensive, current, and critical resource for clinical practice available to today's mental health clinicians and researchers of all orientations. The information contained in the manual is also valuable to other physicians and health professionals, including psychologists, counselors, nurses, and occupational and rehabilitation therapists, as well as social workers and forensic and legal specialists.

• Description : We’ve all seen them: kids hypnotically staring at glowing screens in restaurants, in playgrounds and in friends' houses—and the numbers are growing. Like a virtual scourge, the illuminated glowing faces—the Glow Kids—are multiplying. But at what cost? Is this just a harmless indulgence or fad like some sort of digital hula-hoop? Some say that glowing screens might even be good for kids—a form of interactive educational tool. Don’t believe it. In Glow Kids, Dr. Nicholas Kardaras will examine how technology—more specifically, age-inappropriate screen tech, with all of its glowing ubiquity—has profoundly affected the brains of an entire generation. Brain imaging research is showing that stimulating glowing screens are as dopaminergic (dopamine activating) to the brain’s pleasure center as sex. And a growing mountain of clinical research correlates screen tech with disorders like ADHD, addiction, anxiety, depression, increased aggression, and even psychosis. Most shocking of all, recent brain imaging studies conclusively show that excessive screen exposure can neurologically damage a young person’s developing brain in the same way that cocaine addiction can. Kardaras will dive into the sociological, psychological, cultural, and economic factors involved in the global tech epidemic with one major goal: to explore the effect all of our wonderful shiny new technology is having on kids. Glow Kids also includes an opt-out letter and a "quiz" for parents in the back of the book. [...] by Publisher : 'Macmillan'

• Description : Video games are big business, generating billions of dollars annually. The long-held stereotype of the gamer as a solitary teen hunched in front of his computer screen for hours is inconsistent with the current makeup of a diverse and vibrant gaming community. The rise of this cultural phenomenon raises a host of questions: Are some games too violent? Do they hurt or help our learning? Do they encourage escapism? How do games portray gender? Such questions have generated lots of talk, but missing from much of the discussion has been a Christian perspective. Kevin Schut, a communications expert and an enthusiastic gamer himself, offers a lively, balanced, and informed Christian evaluation of video games and video game culture. He expertly engages a variety of issues, encouraging readers to consider both the perils and the promise of this major cultural phenomenon. The book includes a foreword by Quentin J. Schultze.
