Background and aims: many organizations are aware about the negative impact of extreme aggressive behaviors in the workplace but they have little attention to the causes of such behaviors. So it is necessary that we have identified the factors that have role in the creation of such behaviors. Therefore, this study seeks to relationship Workaholism with aggressive behaviors with mediate role of job emotions in the workplace.

Methods: this research on the basis of objective is practical and the method of collecting data is descriptive-correlation. The Statistical Society consists of all nurses in hospitals of Golestan, Imam Khomeini, Abuzar and Razi in the city of Ahvaz, which sample size was selected 310 with stratified random sampling. In this research to measure variables of obsessive workaholism and success-oriented Workaholism was used of questionnaire of  aziz and et al and to measure variables of job emotions and aggressive behaviors in the workplace was used Respectively of  questionnaires of Watson & Telegen and Hershcovis and et al.

Results: the results show that there is a significant positive relationship between the obsessive Workaholism and aggressive behaviors, while the significant negative relationship of success-oriented Workaholism with aggressive behaviors is not confirmed. Also the results confirms the mediate role of positive and negative emotions in the relationship between Workaholism and aggressive behaviors, and positive emotions have full mediating role in the relationship between success-oriented Workaholism and aggressive behaviors, and negative emotions have incomplete mediate role in the relationship between  obsessive Workaholism and aggressive behaviors.

Conclusion: the results of the research shows that with increasing the intensity of Workaholism among nurses, the intensity of aggressive behaviors will be increasing among them. Since one of the factors in creating aggressive behaviors is lot of works and work in stressful environments, so it is suggested that managers avoid from giving lot of works to their personnel and in order to reduce Workaholism, they should be developed an organizational culture that is based on proper performance and replace it instead of the organizational culture that encourages employees to hard working.
