BEHAVIORAL ADDICTIONS

Description

The addiction to technologies (internet, video games and mobiles), shopping, work, sex or toxic emotional relationships (emotional dependence) hide the presence of psychiatric and psychological symptoms such as low self-esteem, poor tolerance to frustration, impulsivity, non-acquisition of social skills, the search for new sensations and serious affective deficiencies that must be detected, diagnosed and treated early through a multidisciplinary team of professionals who comprehensively address the complexity of these disorders.

Symptoms
