Anxiety at 35,000 Feet
By

Rating
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 Britain's 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

Reviews

'The book covers comprehensively the mental health and psychology of pilots, including the psychological requirements for certification, environmental challenges, psychological problems among air crew, the effects of disruption to personal relationships, alcohol and drug misuse, pilot reactions to incidents and accidents, and the more recent and horrific topic of pilot suicide and terrorism by aircraft. Passenger behaviour receives no less comprehensive and excellent a discussion, covering topics including jet lag, fear of flying, air rage and behaviour during flight, the relationship between passengers and crew, and the often neglected impact on relationships of frequent travel.'This is a highly recommended, timely, and valuable contribution to travel health and medicine and essential reading for travel medicine physicians, psychologists, nurses, and specialists in occupational health.'- Jane N. Zuckerman from the Foreword
