Overview

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.

The textbook is a pleasant departure from the dozens of self-help books that promise relief from fear, but never tell you if their advice really works. Robert Bor and Lucas van Gerwen treat their readers to a buffet of clinical studies, therapy critiques, technological aides, suggestions for air carrier personnel, and therapy success stories. The text has utility for the classroom, as a companion text. The content might not be lengthy enough for a stand-alone text, but if paired with other research studies in the same field, it would give the students a foundation from which to launch into discussion and further study. A full review is available in the International Journal of Applied Aviation Studies, Vol. 3, Issue 2, 2003.
