Research Program. Professor Caplan's research examines technology and interpersonal behavior. He has worked to develop and test a cognitive behavioral model of problematic Internet use along with the Generalized Problematic Internet Use Scale 2 (GPIUS2). To date, the GPIUS2 has been used worldwide and translated into 11 languages.
Professor Caplan's book, "The Changing Face of Problematic Internet Use: An Interpersonal Approach" examines the trends and development of research on problematic types of online social behavior, including Internet/gaming addiction, online behavior and relational conflict, online infidelity, cyberbullying, cyberstalking, and the recent development of being constantly connected to mobile devices and social networks.
Teaching Philosophy & Goals The relationship between communicative phenomena and
well-being influences both his research and teaching. In teaching, Professor Caplan strives to help students apply the findings from research to their own lives in order to enhance
their psychosocial well-being. His guiding pedagogical philosophy is that true learning occurs when students become active participants
in their own educations.
