9780123694256: Psychology and the Internet : Intrapersonal, Interpersonal, and Transpersonal Implications, 2nd Edition

The previous edition provided the first resource for examining how the Internet affects our definition of who we are and our communication and work patterns. It examined how normal behavior differs from the pathological with respect to Internet use. Coverage includes how the internet is used in our social patterns: work, dating, meeting people of similar interests, how we use it to conduct business, how the Internet is used for learning, children and the Internet, what our internet use says about ourselves, and the philosophical ramifications of internet use on our definitions of reality and consciousness. Since its publication in 1998, a slew of other books on the topic have emerged, many speaking solely to internet addiction, learning on the web, or telehealth. There are few competitors that discuss the breadth of impact the internet has had on intrpersonal, interpersonal, and transpersonal psychology.

Key Features
* Provides the first resource for looking at how the Internet affects our definition of who we are
* Examines the philosophical ramifications of Internet use and our definitions of self, reality, and work
* Explores how the Internet is used to meet new friends and love interests, as well as to conduct business
* Discusses what represents normal behavior with respect to Internet use

Book Description:

Do your Internet habits define you?

From the Back Cover:

Eight years have passed since publication of the then groundbreaking first edition of this work. During that time, the internet has become ever more prominent the world over, with 200% growth in usage outside the US, 100% growth in usage within the US, and with the highest penetration in America at 68% of all households. Psychology of the Internet, 2e explores the psychological considerations to using the internet and the internet's effects upon the user. New coverage explores how children use the internet and how this exposure may be shaping their social development. Coverage also includes the effect of child exposure to pornography, predators online, and bullying online. Research on adult disinhibition over the internet is discussed, particularly the tendency for people to more readily self disclose in an online environment. Extensive coverage of socialization on line includes coverage of online dating practices, blogs, and sex online. Internet addiction is covered with respect to definition, precursors, and co-morbidity. Sociological research is also explored as to how people meet and work together online, computer mediated communication, and virtual work teams. Additional chapters explore the burgeoning availability and effectiveness of telehealth/online therapy, the implications of an increasingly virtual society of internet communities, the internet as a global brain, and the possibility that virtual experience may be expanding real consciousness.
