Workaholism, Health, and Self-Acceptance
Chamberlin, Christine M.; Zhang, Naijian
Journal of Counseling & Development, v87 n2 p159-169 Spr 2009
This study examined the relationships between workaholism, perceived parental workaholism, self-acceptance, psychological well-being, and physical symptoms among 347 college students. Statistically significant relationships were found between college students' perceived parental workaholism and their own workaholism. Also, relationships between workaholism, self-acceptance, psychological well-being, and physical symptoms were discovered. Students with higher perceptions of parental workaholism reported lower levels of psychological well-being, lower levels of self-acceptance, and more physical health complaints. Implications and limitations are discussed.
