A book written for the public, edited by the COST Action CA16207 in collaboration with the International College of Obsessive Compulsive Spectrum Disorders (ICOCS) and the International Obsessive Compulsive and Related Disorders Research Network of the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (OCRN-ECNP)’.

In light of the success of the first edition of the companion e-book entitled  “How to deal with Problematic Usage of the Internet”, officially launched during the International Festival of Science and Arts “Raising the Public Voice on Problematic Use of the Internet” in April 2021, after more than a year of work, achieved through the support of the COST Action CA16207 – European Network for Problematic Usage of the Internet, and endorsed by the large number of downloads and numerous requests for translation into different languages, we have decided to create this new, updated, revision based on the suggestions and comments of colleagues and experts in the field as well as other stakeholders including individuals with problematic usage of the Internet and their family members.

In this revised edition of the Companion Book, we have included a wider editorial board, a new chapter entitled “Tips For Individuals With PUI”, and several additional integrations and updates along with an expanded bibliography.
