Gaming Addiction : A qualitative study on how treatment provider’s way of behaving towards young boys with gaming addiction affects the treatment (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to create an understanding through qualitative interviews with treatment providers, how their way of behaving towards young boys with gaming addiction affects the treatment. More specifically its aim was to find out how treatment providers help boys to break their ongoing gaming addiction and what kind of difficulties they have experiences from. The study's empirical material was obtained through semi-structured interviews with six treatment providers with experience of gaming addiction. Three themes were identified: difficulties, working methods and therapeutic alliance. The analysis was based on two different kinds of perspectives: symbolic interactionism and Erving Goffman’s dramaturgical perspective. The first theme has highlighted the subject's complexity, perceptions and self-insight. The clearest result that emerged under the second theme is the importance of different types of conversations. The study shows that motivational interviewing has helped young boys gain insight into their situation. Prohibition is not an appropriate measure, however, restrictions are necessary. The main result that emerged from the third and last theme is that therapeutic alliance is an important basis for change.
