GROUP COUNSELING PROPOSAL

Proposal for Group Counseling
Part I: Background
The area/field or potential problem for the group
The potential problem that I want to tackle is internet addiction specifically
adolescents from high school to college suffering from internet addiction. Internet Addiction is
described as an impulse control disorder that doesn’t involve any substance or intoxicating drug
that is similar to pathological gambling (Young, 1996). Although Internet addiction is not yet
considered as a mental disorder in the DSM V, countries like Korea, China, Japan, Italy, and
Germany have made the first step and considered it as a mental disorder (Mcclurg, 2017; Young,
2017). In present days, everyone has internet access, and it creates a predisposition towards
many addictions. According to Young (1996), internet addiction has five specific subtypes
namely (1)Cyber-sexual addiction which involves compulsive use of adult chat rooms or
cyberporn; (2) Net compulsions which involve compulsive online gaming, shopping, gambling,
and trading; (3) Information overload which involves compulsive web surfing or database
searches; (4) Cyber-relationship addiction which means over-involvement in online
relationships; (5) And lastly, computer addiction which involves obsessive computer gaming
such as Myst, Solitaire, etc. The reason why I plan to work with adolescents suffering from
Internet Addiction is that this stage of a person's life is where they are more vulnerable to the
effects of Internet Addiction. Several studies have indicated the danger that excessive Internet
use that may pose too high school and college students as a population group (Jong-Un, 2007,
2008; Kawabe, Horiuchi, Ochi, Oka & Ueno, 2016; Ostovar et al., 2016; Stavropoulos, Kuss,
Griffiths & Motti-Stefanidi, 2015; Yu & Chao, 2016). Also, adolescents have been found to
spend more time on the internet compared to adults.

Literature review
The group suffering from Internet Addiction encounters or experience serious problems
(Jong-Un, 2007, 2008; Kawabe et al., 2016; Ostovar et al., 2016; Stavropoulos et al., 2015; Yu &
Chao, 2016). These problems associated with Internet Addiction among adolescents include
missing school and mental health problems, such as loneliness, low self-esteem, insufficient
sleep, anxiety, and depression. Besides, students spending more time playing computer games
and using the Internet to spend less time sleeping and experience a higher level of tiredness. Also
like other addictions, Internet Addiction disrupts aspects of an individual's daily life like studies,
school life, health, relationships, and more. All in all, it results in causing problems like poor
time management, low-quality facility time, poor health, poor interpersonal relationships,
financial issues, and poor school performance (Kawabe et al., 2016; Yu & Chao, 2016). The
individuals who suffer from Internet addiction spend more than six hours online doing something
other than work or study and they even feel bad when they’re unable to gain access to a
computer or an electronic device (Mcclurg, 2017; Young, 2017).
