FERREIRA, Monique Bernardes de Oliveira  e  SARTES, Laisa Marcorela Andreoli. A cognitive-behavioral approach to prejudicial use of electronic games. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.11, n.2, pp. 306-326. ISSN 1983-8220.

As a result of technological advances, video-games have become increasingly popular. Despite the benefits of this technology, there is a big concern about its excessive and prolonged use. The goal of this study was to review the literature on the cognitive-behavioral treatments and model for harmful use of electronic games, and to know its etiology, diagnosis and prevalence. For this, Pubmed, SciELO, Capes Periodicals and Scholar Google databases were used. Despite the increase in the number of people who have presented problems related to the use of electronic games, the present study showed that there is no designation, diagnosis and specific treatments for this, and that such elements have been based on studies of internet addiction and other impulse control disorders. However, we count for the moment with very important findings, regarding cognitions, behaviors, emotions, motivational domains, etiology and neurobiological similarities with other disorders and guiding factors for the treatment.
