초록

This study suggested methods of intervention for juvenile game addiction based on literature studies on brain plasticity and addiction and application of arts therapy techniques. First, it provides repetitive experiences through art therapy. When the frequency of use of a specific synapse changes due to repeated experiences, the synapse adapts to the changed positive environment by changing and controlling its structure and function. Synaptic plasticity through repetitive experiences causes the mind to re-regulate the brain. Second, art therapy activities based on the youth's environment and experiences are applied. Art therapy changes the brain through the development of new neural networks. It incorporates the physical, emotional, and cognitive functions of adolescents by accepting the integrated nature of art and psychotherapy. Third, creative art therapy finds an activity that can effectively approach an individual's positive sensory experience and repeats it to control the overwhelmed emotion. There is an effect of activating self-healing through activities that repeat the experiences that give game addiction adolescents now-here (present) pleasure.
