Patriarchy Stress Disorder, Surviving to Thriving & Breaking Free from our Invisible Inner Prisons with Dr. Valerie Rein
Manage episode 275367738 series 2812871
In this episode, I talk to clinical psychologist, author, trainer and teacher Dr. Valerie Rein about her groundbreaking book Patriarchy Stress Disorder: the Invisible Inner Barrier to Women’s Happiness and Fulfillment. We discuss her own personal journey and the health scare that helped her to realize she was not living a completely authentic and fulfilling life despite many outer successes and achievements.
We explore the concepts of intergenerational trauma, collective issues in women’s psychology and why so often good or exciting opportunities can register as threats to our subconscious. Dr. Rein shares how women can start to break free from their invisible inner prisons and why pleasure and joy are such a critical part of the process.
