Objectives: The present research aims to propose a preventive program for internet game addiction and identify how the program affects multicultural children’s game addiction, ego-resilience and school life adjustment. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The research subjects consist of an experimental group of 8 and a control group of 6 multicultural children, who attend upper class of elementary school, located in S city and have potential risk of internet game addiction. They were selected from the multicultural children support center in that city. A set of 8 sessions of prevention program were administered to the experimental group. A pretest was conduct before the program began and a post-test was given after the program to see differences. Findings: It was found that internet game addiction did decrease significantly in the experimental group, whereas their ego-resilience and school life adjustment also significantly increased. Thus, we might conclude that the proposed program exerted positive influence on all the three factors. Improvements/Applications: Such a result of the current research is expected to help multicultural children lead healthy lives.
