Addiction Treatment Work
Denying that is dependent on the work leads to justify this addition to the taste for work, a developed sense of ethics, care in ensuring the welfare of the family, the appreciation of something (work) which is also a distraction , etc..
When signals are, however, obvious: run constant occupation occupation, perfectionism, control, assigning more importance to work than to family and friends, anxiety (relieved by labor, without which withdrawal symptoms appear), lapses moments of memory and absence (because thought he moved to work), impatience and irritability, neglect of food, sleep, exercise and recreation and need - similar to what happens with other addictions, to go increasing the dose of study to feel the same effect (in this case, for recognition by the other), it should be alert for a treatment to urge the dependence of the work.
The work, unlike other addictions, is an indirect source of pleasure, whose treatment is rather difficult and complicated because usually not detected early, when patients turn to a treatment for their dependence on labor, the disease has is in fairly advanced stage and the individual gets crushed by their addition.
Are varied and not easy to identify the triggers of this disease, but the origin may be in cognitive distortions (eg: 'Nothing I do is good enough'), pessimism, in all or nothing without compromise in sense of ineffectiveness, the idea that changing the external environment can modify their own emotions, traumas in childhood or educational models received, the repetition of the pattern of some of the parents in work motivation (being self-employed workers are at greater risk to be picked up for success and meet the demands of work rather than address their - the tasks for a workaholic will successively increasing in size and degree of difficulty), the escape from personal problems (work management postpones emotional difficulties and helps to overcome the deficiencies existential) or in society itself (with its rules and concepts).
In treatment for addiction work, we seek to help the patient to fill the void until then tried to cover with its addition. The treatment is still possible to recover traumatic events and existential distress, regulate emotions (so that the addict be allowed to feel them and communicate them), revise the perception of himself (which influences self-esteem), counteract the predisposition to engage in self-destruction and a cognitive restructuring.
