Abstract

Internet addiction is a common problem in our universities as the number of Internet users are increased. The Internet has positive aspects including informative, convenient, resourceful and fun, but for the addicts, these benefits develop into severe disadvantages. We examined the effect of a REBT group counseling program derived from choice theory and control theory of reality therapy theory for group counseling on the Internet addiction among university students. Participants in the treatment group attended the REBT group counseling program that was held one session per week for 10 consecutive weeks, whereas the participants in the control group received no treatment. The findings indicated that the treatment program effectively reduced Internet addiction among university students. At the same time, the results revealed the significant effects of the REBT group counseling program on the dependent variables.
