In Chained to the Desk, best-selling author and widely respected family therapist Dr. Bryan Robinson has written a ground-breaking book - the first comprehensive portrait of the workaholic. Intended for anyone touched by what Robinson calls "the best-dressed problem of the twentieth century, " this innovative volume profiles the myths behind this greatly misunderstood disorder and the inner psychological battle that work addicts wage against themselves. The book also serves as an inside look into the impact on those who live and work with them - partners, spouses, children, and colleagues - as well as the appropriate techniques for clinicians who treat them. Chained to the Desk both counsels and consoles. It provides a step-by-step guide to help readers spot workaholism, understand it, and recover. Robinson presents strategies for workaholics and their loved ones on how to cope, and for people in the workplace on how to distinguish between work efficiency and workaholism.
