It's important to note that the DSM-5 does not contain a specific diagnostic category for "Post-Infidelity Stress" as a standalone mental health disorder.
Post-infidelity stress encompasses the range of emotional and psychological responses that individuals may experience following the discovery or disclosure of infidelity within a relationship.
This can include feelings of shock, anger, sadness, confusion, and intense emotional distress.
Betrayal trauma, on the other hand, is a specific form of psychological trauma that results from the violation of trust and the perceived betrayal by a significant other, such as a romantic partner or close confidant.
It encompasses the profound emotional and psychological impact of being betrayed by someone who was trusted, leading to a disruption of one's sense of safety and security.
In summary, while post-infidelity stress focuses on the immediate emotional and psychological responses to the discovery or disclosure of infidelity, betrayal trauma delves into the enduring impact of the betrayal on an individual's sense of safety, trust, and well-being.
