Workaholísm: Addiction to Work
Addiction, from the perspective of Individual Psychology, can be conceptualized as goal-oriented, creative, and chosen behavior. Shifron (1999) indicated that addictions are creative choices to deal with the hardships of life. In this article, workaholism is introduced as an addiction through an Adierian framework. Workaholism is important because it negatively affects not only the individual, but also the family system.
