The present study identifies the key features of communication and conflicts in workaholics’ families based on the perception of the workaholics’ partners. As a result of a qualitative methodological approach in which we used as research methods case study and observation, we emphasise the fact that communication effectiveness in workaholics’ families is limited because of the problems occurred because of the transmission and reception of messages by family members; low active, interrupted hearing; disrespect of opinion of the other members of the family; paradoxical, confuse, or inappropriate messages. As for the conflict spectrum, it is a highly diversified but fluctuant one. The conclusion of the results point out the crucial role of communication in the family’s functioning given that most conflicts are deeply rooted in the difficulties of communicating between family members.
