Abstract
Abstract A growing body of research has documented that teacher-student relationship is negatively associated with adolescent Internet addiction. However, little is known about the mediating mechanisms underlying this relation. The present study investigated whether psychological security and deviant peer affiliation mediate the link between teacher-student relationship and adolescent Internet addiction. A sample of 747 middle school students (51% male; M age  = 13.73 years, SD  = 1.00) completed questionnaires regarding demographics, teacher-student relationship, psychological security, deviant peer affiliation, and Internet addiction. After controlling for demographic covariates, the results revealed that: (a) teacher-student relationship was negatively associated with Internet addiction; (b) both psychological security and deviant peer affiliation partially mediated the link between teacher-student relationship and Internet addition in a parallel fashion; and (c) psychological security and deviant peer affiliation also sequentially mediated the link between teacher-student relationship and Internet addition. These findings have important implications for the prevention and intervention of adolescent Internet addiction.

Abstract Internet Addiction (IA) has become an increasingly researched topic. In the present study, IA symptoms in adolescents were investigated longitudinally with specific focus on the individual's hostility, gaming use (of Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games [MMORPGs]) and gaming on the classroom level (calculated using the percentage of MMORPG players within classes). The sample comprised 648 Greek adolescents who were assessed over a two-year period (aged 16–18 years). IA sympto...

Background Social media and online environments are becoming increasingly popular and integral to modern lives. The online presentation of suicidal behaviors is an example of the importance of communication technologies, and the need for professionals to respond to a changing world. These types of behaviors, however, have rarely been scientifically analyzed. This study aimed to examine the behaviors of both suicide broadcasters and their audience, with attention on prevention/crisis opportunitie...

Abundant evidence has demonstrated an association between peer victimization and adolescent problem behaviors. However, there is a large gap in knowledge about the potential mediators that associate peer victimization with problem behaviors and the potential moderators that exacerbate or buffer this association. The current study examined whether deviant peer affiliation mediated the association between peer victimization and problem behaviors and whether the direct and indirect associations wer...

Problematic Internet use (PIU) creates psychological, social, school and/or work difficulties in a person's life. This study examined the unique roles of four dimensions of temperament (effortful control, sensation seeking, anger/frustration, and shyness) on adolescent PIU, as well as the mediating role of deviant peer affiliation (DPA) on these pathways. Participants were 2758 Chinese adolescents (46% male; mean age?=?13.53 years, SD?=?1.06) selected by stratified and random cluster sampling fr...

Although recent studies have documented that perceived negative school climate is associated with adolescent Internet addiction, little is known about the mediating and moderating mechanisms underlying this relation. The present study examined whether deviant peer affiliation mediated the relationship between perceived school climate and adolescent Internet addiction, and whether this mediating process was moderated by adolescent effortful control. Our theoretical model was tested using data col...

Previous studies have emphasized the effect of parent marital conflict on youth's Internet addiction. However, few researchers have examined the mediating role of parent-child attachment and peer attachment between marital conflict and Internet addiction. To fill in this gap, this study aims to examine whether father-child, mother-child, and peer attachment play a mediating role between parent marital conflict and Internet addiction. This cross-sectional study included 450 college students in tw...

A direct pathway from PAR to IGA was not evident in the final model.A fully indirect effect of PAR on IGA highlighted the protective role of SC.DPA fully mediated the link between PAR and IGA.A sequential mediation path appeared in the final model.The impacts of factors in various contexts on IGA were intertwined with each other. The aim of this study was to identify the underlying mediating mechanisms between the parent-adolescent relationship and Internet game addiction (IGA). A sample of 833 ...

Previous studies have shown that materialism, a series of values focused on wealth, possessions, image, and status, is an important risk factor in the dependence of smartphone. However, little is known about the mediating and moderating mechanisms behind this relationship. Based on the theory of self-determination, this study examined whether fear of missing out (FoMO) would mediate the relationship between materialism and adolescent problematic smartphone use, and investigated the moderating ro...

Objectives Previous research has documented that perceived stress is negatively associated with adolescent life satisfaction. However, the mediating mechanisms underlying this relation are largely unknown. The present study tested whether self-control and rumination mediate the link between perceived stress and adolescents’ lower life satisfaction.

Abstract Simulating emergency evacuation plays an important role in social security. Most of the existing systems focus on modeling single type of crowd movements, while ignoring the impact of psychological factors on the population. This paper proposes an emotional contagion-based model to simulate the peer decision-making in emergency evacuation. Firstly, the peer behaviors are simulated by integrating emotion contagion and intimacy-based decision-making. Secondly, the intimacy coefficient is ...

Abstract While there is a growing number of studies investigating the determinants of social media addiction, there is a lack of research on examining the importance of such predictors and their inter-correlations and inter-dependences from psychotherapists’ and researchers’ point of views. Hence, utilizing the “Decision Making Trial and Evaluation Laboratory (DEMATEL)” technique, the current study investigated the clinical importance of social media addiction from the perspective of researchers...

Abstract A growing body of research has shown that school disconnectedness (low school bonding) is a salient risk factor for internet addiction (IA) among adolescents. However, the mediating and moderating mechanisms linking school disconnectedness to IA are still not well understood. This study examined whether self-esteem mediates the relationship between school disconnectedness and IA, and whether this mediating process is moderated by emotional intelligence. A total of 2758 Chinese adolescen...

Abstract The role of social-environmental factors in adolescent problematic Internet use (PIU) has attracted considerable attention recently. Several studies have documented that peer victimization is positively associated with PIU. However, little is known about “how” (i.e., mediation mechanisms) and “under what conditions” (i.e., moderation mechanisms) peer victimization is associated with adolescent PIU. To contribute to this gap in the knowledge, this study used a large sample of Chinese ado...

The current study aimed to explore the underlying mechanisms of how interpersonal relationships relieve adolescents’ problematic mobile phone use (PMPU) and to examine the potential mediating roles of loneliness and motivation to use mobile phones. Four thousand five hundred and nine middle school students from four provinces in China were recruited to participate in the investigation. The results showed that the parent–child relationship but not the teacher–student relationship, had a direct an...
