AVIATION MENTAL HEALTH. Psychological Implications for Air Transportation.
This book provides an authoritative and practical guide to the assessment, management, treatment and care of pilots and other professional groups within aviation: covering a range of relevant topics, for health and human resources practitioners working in the airline industry.
Pilot mental health has, hitherto, been regarded as a specialist topic in aviation medicine. Consequently, practitioners and researchers alike have been forced to consult specialist journals or seek out a relevant chapter on this topic in a general textbook to develop or update their understanding of the relevant issues. This book seeks to remedy this situation by gathering together all of the relevant insights into a single authoritative source gathered from the leading specialists in the field. It aims to cover all of the main relevant issues including the assessment, care, management and treatment of mental health problems, as well as the prevention of mental health problems among this occupational group.
