  • The study proposed new approach for the developing a game addiction treatment program using digital storytelling. We chose 5 types of multimedia elements as educational contents for digital storytelling learning and prepared the teaching strategy for game addiction treatment. We applied the proposed program to 5 students who were included the high risk-user group of game addiction. We also conducted the game addiction tendency test, game usage time test, interview and the effectiveness test of proposed program. As a result of tests, the proposed program showed a positive effect that reduced the game addiction tendency. In the effectiveness test of proposed program, we found the result that 5 experimenters were improved the immersions, challenges, and social interaction, sense of accomplishment in digital storytelling program. We expect that this study will provide positive role and new education strategy for game addiction treatment.

  • The aim of this review is to analyze the trend of using Virtual Reality (VR) in addiction treatment by categorizing the types of addictions and methods of Virtual Reality Therapy (VRT) for substance use disorders. VR has been utilized as a new paradigm for treating various mental and psychological problems. In recent years, a number of researches have been done to demonstrate the effectiveness of VRT for addiction treatment, specifically substance use disorders. In order to comprehend the tendency of these researches, the current study performed a systematic review of published book and journal articles using the following bibliographical databases: ScienceDirect, MEDLINE, ProQuest, and Embase. Forty-five (45) articles were retrieved; out of these researches, nicotine/smoking has garnered the highest number of studies (73%, n=33); alcohol (18%, n=8); cannabis/marijuana (2%, n=1); and other drugs such as heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine (7%, n=3). This paper analyzed the results of those studies, found some limitations as well as strengths, and made suggestions for further research on VRT for addiction treatment.

  • Purpose - This study investigates the effects of thought suppression on depression and uneasiness among college students likely to be influenced by smart phone addiction. Research design, data, and methodology - A total of 151 valid questionnaires were collected. The following analyses were conducted using SPSS 19.0 and AMOS 19.0: frequency, descriptive statistics, correlation, simple regression, and multiple regression. Results - Smart phone addiction increased uneasiness, depression, impulsiveness, and aggression. Moreover, uneasiness, depression, impulsiveness and aggression from smart phone addiction, had a negative influence on psychological wellbeing resulting in potential delinquent behavior. In addition, the addiction treatment relied heavily on drugs; therefore, such psychological treatment should be strengthened to control intermittent addiction. Conclusions - The results indicate that various kinds of research are needed to investigate personality and environmental factors that influence smart phone addiction. Additionally, studies on lessening smart phone addiction and living healthy lifestyles are needed. Moreover, psychological rehabilitation and treatment should be developed to lessen the rebound effect after thought suppression, to verify the effects of clinical application, and to prevent intermittent addiction.

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a functional contextual intervention approach based on the behavioral theory on human language, which views human suffering as originating in psychological inflexibility fostered by cognitive fusion and experiential avoidance. Thus, the goal of ACT is to enhance psychological flexibility using six core processes including acceptance, cognitive defusion, self-as-context, contact with present moment, values clarification, and committed action. Recent clinical trials have suggested the efficacy for ACT in the treatment of various mental illness and psychological distress. The aim of this review is to offer more knowledge and better understanding of ACT by presenting its underlying principle and an overview of the research field.

  • As information and communication technology develops, it brings various benefits to our lives. However, information and communication technology has had various side effects in our lives. Representative side effects include internet addiction, smartphone addiction, copyright violation, personal information infringement, cyber bullying and hacking. Recently, smart phone addiction rate is increasing with the spread of smart devices in Korea. In this study, we analyze the correlation between age group and smartphone addiction. In order to obtain fair and objective results, statistical analysis was performed based on the national statistical data of the National Information Society Agency. The results showed that the infant group and the adult group were correlated with the smartphone addiction rate. In this study, we analyzed the causes of smartphone addiction for different age groups. We also discuss dangers of smartphone addiction for different age groups. In additions, we proposed various ways to prevent and cure smartphone addiction for infants, adults, and senior citizen group. The results of this study are expected to be widely used as a remedy for smartphone addiction and future smartphone addiction research works.

  • 본 논문은 가상현실을 이용한 중독치료 동향분석을 위해 관련 연구사례들을 수집하고 중독현상별로 분류하여 치료방법과 치료의 유용성과 한계점, 발전 방안을 분석하였다. 학술연구 데이터베이스인 Science Direct, Medline, Proquest 그리고 Embase에 등재된 논문들 중 1999년부터 2016년까지 중독치료를 위해 가상현실 기술을 실험적으로 적용하고 효과를 검증한 연구 46편을 선정하여 중독의 범주별 치료효과를 분석하였다. 가상현실 치료내용은 단서노출치료를 주로 활용하고 있으며 연구대상은 청소년들보다 성인들이 더 많았다. 니코틴 중독 가상현실치료 연구가 가장 많은 수를 차지했고 그 다음으로는 알코올, 코카인/필로폰, 마리화나 순으로 확인되었다. 가상현실 치료는 다양한 중독 치료에 효과가 있었으며 인지치료와 함께 적용할 때 효과가 더 높았다. 치료의 한계점으로는 비용과 절차상 특수성, 사이버 멀미 등으로 인해 연구대상이 소수이며, 치료회기가 짧고, 장기연구 또는 추후연구를 실시한 경우 많지 않아 추후에 연구완성도를 보완하는 시도가 필요함을 알 수 있었다.

  • Purpose: This purpose of study was to describe the adaptation process in the workplace in Korean adults with alcohol use disorder. Methods: Twelve participants were recruited at hospital outpatients, Alcoholic Anonymous, and addiction treatment centers from October 2016 to January 2017. Inclusion criteria were Korean adults aged 18 and older who were diagnosed with alcohol use disorder and had a job for at least one year. Data were analyzed using Strauss and Corbin's grounded theory method. Results: From open coding, 74 final concepts, 18 sub-categories, and 10 categories were identified. Results showed that the central phenomenon was 'struggling to stand confidently'. The core categories were 'withstanding life by embracing reality as an addict', and the adaptation process appeared 'selection stage', 'determination stage', and 'management stage'. The adaptation process of Korean adults with alcohol use disorder in the workplace was compared to 'pearl in oyster', which can be a process of breaking through pain. Conclusion: Our study findings provide an in-depth understanding of the experiences of an alcoholic's job life. Mental health nurses need to be actively involved in developing vocational rehabilitation programs for addicts.

  • The number of disasters caused by natural or human-made events such as earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, typhoons, industrial disasters, and the recent outbreak of COVID-19 has increased and the damage caused by such disasters is increasing every year. Disasters can cause physical destruction and also have unexpected psychological impacts, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Ear acupuncture is a treatment modality that can be helpful for both physical and mental health problems. Since ear acupuncture is a cost-effective, flexible, and safe treatment tool, it has the potential to provide medical assistance in disasters. The National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) auricular acupuncture protocol, originally developed for addiction treatment, has been used for mental illness and behavioral symptoms in both community health settings and in a variety of disaster, terror, and refugee settings. In this review, we introduced the NADA protocol, including its history, features, training, clinical evidence, and cases in disaster settings, suggesting that the NADA protocol could be utilized as a disaster medical support model in Korean medicine.
