Abstract

Workaholism is a behavior with uncontrollable drive to work and tend to be compulsive. A workaholic person would encounter negative effect on their relationship, leisure times, and/or their health. It had been recorded, most workers with workaholism were managers and professional position. Very often workaholic behavior is used for a coping stress from negative experience(s) that had happened in their lives. Therefore, we will investigate the childhood experience of managers or professional workers specifically with their traumatic childhood events such as physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, physical neglect, and emotional neglect. This study is important as there are numerous effects of childhood maltreatment. We used workaholic behavior measure, Bergen Work Addiction Scale / BWAS and childhood maltreatment scale, Childhood Trauma Questionnaire – Short Form / CTQ-SF that has been adapted to Bahasa Indonesia. We recruited 34 participants based on criteria, which are managers or professional workers with workaholism tendencies, has experienced at least one of the childhood maltreatments in “low-moderate” category. The results showed that there were 44% participants had experienced physical abuse, 62% had experienced emotional abuse, 53% had experienced sexual abuse, 74% had experienced physical neglect, and 68% had experienced emotional neglect. To conclude, managers or professional workers in this study tend to experienced physical neglect during their childhood.

These results must be interpreted with caution.
