May 6, 2009 - PRLog -- Join Jacqueline Foreman, host of Your Mental Health Talk Radio on May 9, 2009 at 8 PM EDT at www.blogtalkradio.com/yourmentalhealth as she speaks with Dr.  Dennis Ortman about his book Transcending Post-infidelity Stress Disorder (PISD): The Six Stages of Healing. The discovery of a partner's infidelity is heart-wrenching and traumatic. Ortman likens the psychological aftermath of sexual betrayal to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in its origin and symptoms, including anxiety, irritability, rage, emotional numbing, and flashbacks. Using PTSD treatment as a model, Dr. Ortman presents steps to recovery from the pain of infidelity. With the author's PISD system, readers will find a structure to help them categorize emotions, face their rage, make important life decisions, and find wholeness, peace, and forgiveness. Dr. Dennis Ortman, a licensed psychologist in private practice, welcomes those suffering emotional or mental pain.  He works with adolescents, adults, and couples to find relief from their suffering, happiness, and a renewed life.

Dr. Ortman received his doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Detroit-Mercy and has a graduate degree in theology.  He has extensive experience working with those who are addicted and with those struggling with issues on the border between psychology and spirituality.  He has published two books on treating those with emotional and substance abuse problems and a third book on recovery from the trauma of infidelity through the power of forgiveness. Dr. Ortman provides a full range of psychological services in a safe, confidential, and comfortable office setting in Sterling Heights, Michigan.   On the basis of a secure self-understanding, the person is better able to make important decisions, realize their potential, and have more satisfying relationships. In the process of learning about themselves and accepting personal responsibility, healing and growth occur.  The final result of therapy is the ability to live whole-heartedly in the present moment, putting one’s whole self into their life, work, and relationships.  Dr. Ortman tells his patients that the purpose of therapy is not to create an improved version of themselves, but to see themselves differently and relax with who they are.  Therapy involves recognizing and letting go of those obstacles to whole-hearted self-acceptance.
