ABOUT

I am a licensed clinical psychologist, with over 38 years of therapy and counseling experience in the United States, Canada, and Israel, who has been serving the English speaking community of Central Israel for the past 20 years. I was born in Nova Scotia and received my doctorate from the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology of Yeshiva University. I completed my internship and further postdoctoral work in Sex Therapy at the Mount Sinai Hospital and held positions on the faculties of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, City University of New York and Dalhousie University. I have served on the board of directors of both the provincial psychological association and psychology licensing board, as well as the Chevra Kadisha and emergency disaster response team. I have advanced accreditation as a Fellow in Thanatology (Death Education and Counselling), and additional training in SE-Somatic Experiencing (Advanced), EMDR, CISM ( Critical Incident Stress Debriefing and Management ( Basic and Advanced), and have worked extensively with the American and Israeli communities after 9-11, and other mass casualty events, terrorist incidents and natural disasters. I have given workshops on marriage, parenting, stress management, coping, bereavement, and the psychological impact of terror and trauma. I am published extensively in both the professional and lay literature and have been quoted in Reader's Digest, Modern Woman, Today's Parent, Canadian Family, Jewish Week, The Jerusalem Report, and CNN among others. I have been writing an acclaimed psychology column for the Jerusalem Post since 2000, and am the author of the book, Life's Journey: Exploring Relationships, Resolving Conflicts.

I am married with three children and reside in Ra'anana, Israel where I maintain a private practice in psychology. I work with adults, children, adolescents, couples, families, and groups providing assessment, consultation, and psychotherapy (including short term solution focused and cognitive behavior therapy [CBT], as well as using techniques such as EMDR and SE), as well as bereavement and trauma counseling. Among other issues, I specialize in bereavement/grief and loss, trauma, stress, anxiety, depression, adjustment issues, communication/relationship problems, sexual dysfunction, parenting issues and behavior problems. Please see my website: www.drbatyaludman.com for more details, including my approach to treatment, services provided and a selection of recent publications. .
