Abstract:   (1899 Views)
Introduction: The purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of self-determination theory (SDT) training and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) on anxiety and cyberbullying in male students with Internet gaming disorder (IGD) with and without comorbidity of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Materials and Methods: This study was a quasi-experimental study with a control group including pre-test, post-test, and follow-up test procedures. The statistical population consisted of all students aged 12 to 14 years with IGD in Khorramabad, Iran; from which 42 children were selected by purposive sampling method and randomly assigned to two experimental groups and one control group. The instruments used included IGD-20 Test, the Child Symptom Inventory-4, the Beck anxiety inventory, and the Cyber-bullying/victimization experiences questionnaire. The intervention groups underwent 9 two-hour sessions of SDT training (intervention group 1) and ACT (intervention group 2). The intervention groups also underwent 9 sessions of two-hour of SDT training (intervention group 1) and ACT (intervention group 2). Results: The results of the data analysis showed no significant difference between the effect of two intervention programs with SDT and ACT training on anxiety and cyberbullying. Moreover, the interaction of the two variables of group membership and comorbidity of ADHD groups on cyberbullying was significant. Conclusion: Both methods of SDT training and ACT can equally benefit students with IGD with a significant impact on anxiety and cyberbullying.
