The Invisible Barrier to Women’s Happiness and Fulfillment.
Dr Valerie Rein, psychologist and women’s mental health expert, discovered Patriarchy Stress Disorder and how a history (the world’s, not just ours) of oppression keeps women’s nervous systems in hyper-activation, even when life seems perfect. For Dr. Rein, that was 4 degrees including a Master’s and a PhD, a successful career, wonderful husband and daughter and picture perfect house in the suburbs. Until she ended up in the emergency room with stress-induced symptoms of a stroke.
Dr. Rein wrote the book, Patriarchy Stress Disorder: The Invisible Barrier to Women’s Happiness and Fulfillment, accompanied by a podcast, blog, community and the “jailbreak curriculum” to help women heal the toxic effects of this epigenetic trauma.
