Professional Internet Addictions Coach Certification and Training Program

Nationally Certified Internet Addictions Coach (NCIAC)

Internet Addictions CoachLost Online: When the Internet takes over your life it can be a serious problem, and even an addiction. Limited information is available to treat this type of addiction and more and more people spend more time online than in real life. Have you tried to pry a cell phone from a 15-year-old’s hands? How will they ever post that selfie on Facebook or check in at Starbucks?  Even 8-year-olds are addicted to gaming online and spend more time inside in front of a computer, phone, iPad or TV, than outside playing.

Addiction to social media is the newest type of addiction that has arisen over the years and it can be debilitating for some. You see the constant selfies, tying self-esteem to likes on a page and even becoming depressed because it appears that other people have more fun or a life on social media.  We cover this all plus more. But its not just social media anymore, now it is email for executives, porn, Amazon Prime and shopping, Candy Crush and gaming (even the 40 year-olds are glued to their phones!)

Internet addiction is described as an impulse control disorder, which does not involve the use of an intoxicating drug and is very similar to pathological gambling. Some Internet users may develop an emotional attachment to online friends and activities they create on their computer screens. We saw this with the advent of Yahoo Messenger and now Facebook (originally MySpace) where an entire false reality can be created (including photos, job, etc) that is not real. ‘Gamers’ that are enmeshed in the online video games also have this phenomena. We saw the game Grand Theft Auto played in real life in San Diego when ‘Gamers’ started throwing bricks off overpasses and shooting at moving cars.

NOTE: There are NO prerequisites to this course, however you must complete the life coaching units in the program. Also included is an ethics class and 10 hours of supervision. We do offer Job Board, Networking, and Business/Private Practice assistance. We also hire from within once you are trained, certified, insured, and bonded.
