Protection of Privacy of Information Rights among Young Adults with Developmental Disabilities | SpringerLink
International Journal of Mental Health and Addiction - Latest Results;; April 18, 2018 at 11:21AM; ;


Protection of privacy of information for young adults with developmental disabilities and their families is essential to promote quality of life, well-being, empowerment, and inclusion. Despite this, the young adults’ information privacy rights are increasingly at risk. This paper provides a scoping review, applying Arksey and O’Malley’s (2005) approach, of all published peer-reviewed journal articles and gray literature to examine the barriers and facilitators in utilization of legislation that protects the collection, use, disclosure, and access of personal information in Canada. The scoping review process was further expanded with a rigorous reliability method and applied a socio-ecological framework to the final 47 studies. National and international policy and legislation (macro level), organization-based factors (meso), young adults and community interactions (exo), and individual disability related factors (micro) are examined. The review identifies the barriers and highlights the importance of facilitators for acting on personal privacy rights.

Being There: A Preliminary Study Examining the Role of Presence in Internet Gaming Disorder | SpringerLink
International Journal of Mental Health and Addiction - Latest Results;; April 17, 2018 at 07:21AM; ;


Internet Gaming Disorder (IGD) has been introduced as an emerging mental health condition requiring further study. Associations between IGD and gaming presence (i.e., absorption in the virtual environment) have been implied. The aim of the present study was twofold: (a) to evaluate the extent to which presence contributes to IGD severity and (b) to examine longitudinal differences in IGD according to the initial level of presence experienced. The participants comprising 125 emerging adults aged 18 to 29 years completed either (i) three face-to-face assessments (1 month apart, over 3 months) or (ii) a cross-sectional, online assessment. IGD was assessed with the 9-item IGD Scale Short Form and presence was assessed using the Presence Questionnaire. Regression and latent growth modeling analyses were conducted. Findings demonstrated that the level of gaming presence related to IGD severity but not to linear change in severity over a 3-month period. The study shows that emergent adults who play Internet games may be at a high risk of IGD given a more salient sense of being present within the gaming environment. Clinical implications considering prevention and intervention initiatives are discussed.
