High involvement and preoccupation with work can be a cause of stress that poses negative results for both individuals and organizations. In this regard, LEARN stress management program as a complete intervention can prevent journalists from workaholism. So, the current study aimed to determine the effectiveness of multifaceted stress management training on workaholism in journalists with job stress. Research design was quasi-experimental (pretest-posttest design with control group). The sample consisted of 30 volunteer stressful journalists in Fars news agency of Tehran city who randomly were assigned into two groups of experimental (n = 15) and control (n = 15). The sessions were conducted for 18 weekly sessions of 90 minutes and the subjects responded to Work Addiction Risk Test questionnaire (WART). The results showed that Lorenchr('39')s multifaceted stress management training program significantly affects the workaholism (p<0.01). Also, there is a statistically significant difference between the experimental group and the control group in the scores of self-efficacy, compulsive tendencies, weak inhinbition and communication/self-absorption (p<0.01).
