English | ISBN: 1855759659 | 2004 | 129 pages | PDF | 1 MB
Fear of flying is a perennial problem among both passengers and airline crews and recent terrorist attacks have heightened the levels of anxiety when boarding a plane. In this volume, one of Britains leading aviation psychologists, Robert Bor, examines passenger behaviour when faced with anxiety towards flying; the mental health of pilots; and the possible treatments for people suffering from fear of flying. The main aim of Anxiety at 35,000 Feet is to introduce basic concepts of clinical aviation psychology, with a primary emphasis on psychotherapeutic and clinical psychological issues.
"It is reasonable to assume that every psychotherapeutic encounter has become affected by recent world events in a number of different ways. For many people, the terrorist attacks have aroused previously palpable feelings of insecurity and unsafety that might have emerged in therapeutic work in other ways." - Robert Bor, from the Introduction
