In this work, we tried to verify whether negative social self-efficacy perception and insecure attachment style are risk factors for Internet addiction development. We investigated the relationship between these factors and use/abuse of Internet in a group of 500 students of the University of Enna (Italy). Negative social self-efficacy perception, Internet addiction, and insecure attachment are significantly correlated. Conclusions: The insecure attachment and a negative social self-efficacy perception constitute risk factors for Internet addiction development.

Abstract

In this work, we tried to verify whether negative social self-efficacy perception and insecure attachment style are risk factors for Internet addiction development. We investigated the relationship between these factors and use/abuse of Internet in a group of 500 students of the University of Enna (Italy). Negative social self-efficacy perception, Internet addiction, and insecure attachment are significantly correlated. Conclusions: The insecure attachment and a negative social self-efficacy perception constitute risk factors for Internet addiction development.
