Online course on basics of management of behavioral addictions involving use of internet: Observations from the first batch of participants. Asian J Psychiatr. 2019 Jul 05;44:1-3 Authors: Pal Singh Balhara Y, Singh S Abstract Problematic internet use has been reported to be high among school students. An online course was developed with an aim to strengthen the capacity of school teachers and counsellors on early identification, detection and intervention for behavioral addictions involving use of internet. The current report presents the observation from the first batch of participants of this course. Of the 28 teachers and counselors who expressed interest by enrollment in the course, a total of 15 participants provided both the pre and post course evaluation forms. The preliminary findings suggest that the online course is feasible, acceptable and effective in strengthening the capacity of school teachers and counsellors on behavioral addictions involving use of internet.
