Fear of flying can be treated and overcome!
The Israel national carrier, together with Dr. Sergio Marchevsky, is developing a unique workshop for coping with fear of flying. This is the first workshop to combine the efforts of professionals from the field of psychology who are experts in dealing with anxiety and fear, and professionals from the aviation field, including an EL AL captain, an Israel Air Force pilot and the technological training staff.
The 4-meeting workshop totaling approximately 16 hours, will include:
Psychological explanations of fears, anxieties and fear of flying.
How to cope with fear-generating negative thinking. An introduction to automatic negative thinking and ways to change thinking through cognitive structuring that aims to redefine negative interpretations that can lead to anxiety.
Techniques for managing stress through breathing exercises, relaxation and guided imagery.
Gradual exposure to triggers that arouse fears, including the use of flight simulators accompanied by a staff of professional psychologists.
Between meetings, participants will be given assignments for practicing and internalizing the skills for managing stress and fears.
Cost of workshop is: 2900₪ + VAT
