Advances in Psychology Research. Volume 143 first considers the characteristics of digital teaching resources capable of facilitating independent learning that can support the development of new capacities.
Following this, the authors focus on factors that may lead to problematic gaming and the theories/frameworks that explain such behavior, ways to mediate excessive game play, and summarize the risks and benefits of video game play.
This compilation also explores how different responses to emotional distress may increase risk for addictive behaviors. Research suggests that individuals may engage in risky or addictive behaviors such as drinking, drug use, and bulimia as a way to ameliorate feelings of emotional distress.
In the closing study, an analysis of five qualifying works of a psychiatrist on the subject of organizational and methodological component is carried out, with the goal of demonstrating that the participation of the psychiatrist in continuing medical education is an organizational advantage.
