Are the technological addictions really bone fide mental disorders or just an exaggeration of everyday social and personal ailments of the 21st century?

In this session, we emphasize the latest scientific literature on this emerging field of medicine. We will focus on the following seven technological addictions: 1. Video and Computer Games 2.
