Abstract

Discusses the nature and evolution of workaholism, and how it differs from other addictions. The characteristics of work to those people who have the opportunity to be workaholics are detailed, and examples are given. Some guidelines are given for counsellors dealing with workaholics, but it is emphasised that individual treatment will not create a permanent solution as long as organisational cultures and climates promote workaholism.
