Abstract

In 2013, Internet gaming disorder (IGD) was incorporated in the DSM-5.
In 2018, the World Health Organization (WHO) confirmed the inclusion of
the new diagnosis “Gaming disorder” in the ICD-11. Both IGD and Gaming
disorder refer to a problematic use of video games. Yet, IGD has thus
far only been assessed by self-ratings, while external ratings have not
been available. We adapted a frequently used screening tool for IGD
(Internet Gaming Disorder Scale, IGDS) to a parental rating (Parental
version of the Internet Gaming Disorder Scale, PIGDS) and evaluated its
psychometric properties. Data were collected in 1,970 face-to-face
interviews (with 985 parents and 985 related adolescents) using a
standardized questionnaire measuring adolescent IGD by self- and
parental ratings and frequency of gaming, psychopathological burden,
hyperactivity/inattention, family functioning, and school performance.
Furthermore, we determined the accordance of adolescent and parental
ratings for IGD. We conducted a confirmatory factor analysis,
correlation analyses, and have determined reliability and concordance.
We observed a one-dimensional factor structure of the PIGDS and its
internal consistency was 0.86. We found very first indications of
criterion validity for the PIGDS. The correlation between IGDS and PIGDS
was 0.78 and we observed kappa coefficients between both ratings of
0.62 and 0.61 (based on the most suitable cutoff points for the PIGDS).
Both adolescent and parental ratings of IGD were consistently associated
with higher psychopathological burden, stronger
hyperactivity/inattention, poorer family functioning, and poorer school
performance. According to the results, a parental assessment of IGD in
adolescence seems to be a promising new approach and it opens a new
perspective in the exploration of IGD.
