Psychological Perspectives on Fear of Flying Book Description:

This is the first authoritative work to examine the psychological determinants and effects associated with the 'fear of flying'. The contents include: · the extent and nature of the problem of fear of flying; · understanding public perceptions of safety associated with flying; · assessment of clients; psychological treatment approaches; · the use of specific interventions (e.g. virtual reality) and clinical case studies. It is an up-to-date and wide-ranging handbook, covering theory, research and practice. The international panel of authors are all experienced researchers and clinicians, and are leaders in their respective fields. The book is intended for those who work professionally in commercial and military aviation. This includes aviation psychologists, aerospace medical/nursing personnel, flying instructors, clinical psychologists and psychiatrists and those involved in fear of flying programs. A secondary audience includes researchers, professionals with an interest in anxiety/phobia, travel health clinic nurses and counsellors/therapists. Those who have a fear of flying themselves will also find the contents of interest.
