Chained to the Desk: A Guide for Workaholics, Their Partners and Children, and the Clinicians Who Treat Them

Bryan E. Robinson, Author New York University Press $18.95 (280p) ISBN 978-0-8147-7556-1
Psychology professor and psychotherapist Bryan E. Robinson (Don't Let Your Mind Stunt Your Growth) trains his practiced eyes on the workplace in Chained to the Desk: A Guidebook for Workaholics, Their Partners and Children, and the Clinicians Who Treat Them. He addresses major issues such as what spouses can do to help a workaholic partner or themselves; technology's enabling role (via Dictaphones, the Internet, cell phones) in work addiction; and the contention that ""working dads face as much work-family stress as moms do."" In chapters like ""Treating Work Addiction as a Family Disease"" and ""The Childhoods of Workaholics,"" Robinson begins with a case study and then explores the various beliefs, motivations and fears that propel people to overwork. This useful, well-turned guide will serve therapists and the many people affected by the disease equally well. (July 2)
