This research project focuses on Gaming Disorder, a new diagnosis that has recently been
included in the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11). With the use of psychodynamic and longitudinal approaches, we aim to explore the role of intrinsic motivations, affective dysregulation, coping strategies, and other potential factors associated with Gaming Disorder in order to investigate the causes and development of this problematic behaviour. First, we plan to conduct a three-wave online panel survey (within an 18-month period) on the Czech gaming population. Second, qualitative longitudinal in-depth interviews will provide information about individuals at risk of Gaming Disorder within three waves of data collection over an 18-monthlong period. Research findings will expand the current knowledge about Gaming Disorder, including their underlying psychodynamic factors, manifestations, outcomes, and development over time.
