When Work Takes Control The Psychology and Effects of Work Addiction
The purpose of this book is to explain, first, what happens when we become too involved in our work, and, second, how we avoid being controlled by our work and how we prevent family members, friends, colleagues, or employees from being so. In addition, it is hoped that the book will help bring about a debate about our work habits and initiate thought and discussion about our values and how much space work should be allowed to take up in our lives. The book is addressed to everyone who deals with the psychological working environment, among them business managers and counsellors who treat people with work-related problems. In addition, anyone who wishes to establish a better balance between their work life and private life would benefit from reading the book.
