Preface: Around Easter of 1983 I was drafted as keynote speaker for a conference on ?Stress and Violence in Criminal Justice.? 1 cannot remember what I said there, but I have somehow rescued three vignettes I deployed in the course of my presentation. One item I used related to an air traffic controller and his family. At this period of time, controllers had appointed themselves poster boys for occupational stress, and they were reaping a harvest of more or less favorable publicity. One newspaper story had attracted my attention. It featured an interview with the wife of a controller, who said that her husband persisted in directing traflic while at home. She specifically complained that ?he sometimes orders us around like he is ordering planes to land.? The wife also reported (with serendipitously felicitous wit) that it was hard for her spouse to ?come down? after he arrived home. The husband acknowledged with appreciation his family?s forbearance and understanding. He said that he recognized the problems he was unwittingly creating, but concluded that understanding the effects of stress (which he said he did) was a far cry from being able to change one?s behavior. He also said that because misery loved company, his group of controllers regularly met to reinforce each others? discontent.
