Teen Internet Addiction

I was invited to speak on teen internet addiction by The Asian and Pacific Islander Children, Youth and Family Council in Chinatown. My presentation focused comparing and contrasting the terms "process addiction" and "substance addiction." My discussion described the neurobiology of process addictions in teens and then highlighted at risk populations:" ADHD, Autism, Depression, and Social Anxiety Disorder. If you would like a copy of my power point, please email me at I will also post a copy of my power point on my website:
