Chained to the Desk (Second Edition)

A Guidebook for Workaholics, Their Partners and Children, and the Clinicians Who Treat Them

As seen on 20/20, The Early Show, and ABC World News Tonight Americans love a hard worker. The man or woman who works eighteen-hour days and eats his or her meals on the run between appointments is usually viewed with a combination of respect and awe. But for many, this lifestyle leads to family problems, a decline in work productivity, and ultimately to physical and mental collapse. Chained to the Desk, best-selling author and widely respected family therapist Bryan E. Robinson’s groundbreaking book, originally published in 1998, was the first comprehensive portrait of the workaholic. Thousands benefited from this innovative book, which profiles the myths behind this greatly misunderstood disorder and the inner psychological battle that work addicts wage against themselves. Intended for anyone touched by what Robinson calls “the best-dressed problem of the twenty-first century,” the author also provides an inside look into the impact on those who live and work with them —partners, spouses, children, and colleagues—as well as the appropriate techniques for clinicians who treat them. In this new and updated edition, Robinson portrays the many different kinds of workaholism, drawing on hundreds of case reports from his own original research and years of clinical practice. From California to the Carolinas, men and women tell of their agonizing bouts with workaholism and the devastations left in its wake, struggles made all the more challenging in a world where the computer, cell phone, and Blackberry allow twenty-four-hour access to the office, even on weekends and from vacation spots. Adult children of workaholics describe their childhood pain and the lifelong legacies they still carry, and the spouses or partners of workaholics reveal the isolation and loneliness of their vacant relationships. Employers and business colleagues discuss the cost to the company when workaholism dominates the workplace. Chained to the Desk both counsels and consoles. It provides a step-by-step guide to help readers spot workaholism, understand it, and recover. Robinson presents strategies for workaholics and their loved ones on how to cope, and for people in the workplace on how to distinguish between work efficiency and workaholism.

»In den Märchen über Inzest zwischen Vater und Tochter – ›Das Mädchen ohne Hände‹, ›Allerleirauh‹, in der Originalversion von ›Aschenputtel‹ und den Geschichten der Heiligen Dymphna, der Patronin aller Inzest-Opfer – verhalten sich die Töchter immer genauso, wie man es von ihnen erwarten würde: Sie sind entsetzt über die sexuellen Annäherungen ihrer Väter. Sie tun alles, was in ihrer Macht steht, um zu entkommen. Ich nicht. Ein Kleinkind kann nicht entkommen. Und später, als ich es konnte, war es zu spät.« Eine junge Frau wird mehr als zwanzig Jahre lang von ihrem Vater sexuell missbraucht. Tiefsitzende Ängste prägen ihr Sein, ihr Weltbild, ihr Verständnis von Familie. Unter dem Deckmantel einer intakten Familie wächst das Kleinkind zum Mädchen und schließlich zur Frau heran. Doch selbst im Erwachsenenalter lässt sie sich auf immer wieder neue Spielformen der Abhängigkeit, der Unterwerfung und der Gewalt ein. In diesem Memoir ruft die Erzählerin ihre Kindheitstraumata und deren Folgen wieder auf. Sie spürt der Frage nach, wie die jahrzehntelangen Vergewaltigungen durch ihren Vater sie geprägt haben und inwiefern sie den erlernten Abhängigkeiten immer noch unterworfen ist. Ihr Tatsachenbericht legt offen, dass ein Leben, welches als Sexualobjekt statt als Kind begonnen wird, kein Leben ist. Die körperlichen und psychischen Zwänge, denen die Erzählerin jahrelang ausgesetzt war, münden in eine Abwärtsspirale, aus der es kein Entkommen gibt.

This book grapples with a disturbing paradox: the very institutions that are supposed to be helping parents in the difficult enterprise of child rearing are often infected with pronounced anti-family views. Despite the attempt by politicians and social theorists alike to posture as being on the side of 'family values', Dana Mack argues, we live in a culture that is increasingly family -- unfriendly and indeed subtly undermines the efforts of parents when they are working harder than ever to raise their children properly. At once a devastating critique of our muddled status quo and also a clear blueprint for change, this book is bound to have a powerful effect on anyone who is concerned about the fate of the family in contemporary American life.

After growing in marriage for over three decades, living in different parts of the country, working at a variety of jobs, and raising four biological and adopted children, Tom and Judie Eisenman have faced some of the toughest questions family life can throw at us. As a result they have a wealth of ideas and practical suggestions to offer those lured by patterns that could pull them apart. But they have more. Here is a wisdom honed by God's Spirit and built on God's Word. It is a wisdom that goes beyond concrete advice to a powerful perspective on family life that can carry you through good times and bad. It knows that sometimes the forces damaging families are not always outside the home but sometimes inside the home too. If you know that life is not full of pat answers and simple solutions, if you know that keeping a family together takes work and creativity, if you know that God is in the business of building families for his glory, then this book is for you.
