In the last century medical progress has substantially reduced the morbidity and mortality in somatic diseases. However there is a "new morbidity" with an increase of psychomotor developmental, learning, behavioral and mental disorders often with an initial onset in about 20% of childhood. A social gradient in terms of health inequalities is known. Reducing this new morbidity of child and adolescent health problems is a major public health priority. In this context modern Internet based alternative, complementary strategies for prevention or treatment are needed. As neuropsychological executive functions (EXF) may interfere with impulse control e.g. behavioral inhibition we would like to discuss in this survey potential future preventive perspectives of such a combined approach in promoting EXF and Impulse Control for respective disorders.
