A few short years ago, Jen was clueless to the reality of patriarchal influence on our human behavior - she admits thinking the term “patriarchy” was made up. It was time to get educated on the very systems that impact ALL OF US, regardless of where one falls on the gender spectrum.
Jen and Dr. Valerie engage in a fascinating conversation that debunks misconceptions around the patriarchy. Knowledge is power, setting us free from the internalized stress and self-condemnation that patriarchal oppression lends to. Did you know there is an insidious and unspoken demand to be “patriarchy perfect?” Oh, and if you don’t believe that shared, generational trauma exists in our very makeup - ask the mice referenced at minute 31:15 in this episode! You can’t dismantle something if you don’t know it exists.
Our guest: DR. VALERIE REIN is a psychologist and women’s mental health expert who has discovered Patriarchy Stress Disorder (PSD) and created the only science-backed system for helping women achieve their ultimate success, happiness, and fulfillment by healing the intergenerational trauma of oppression.
She holds an EdM in Psychological Counseling from Columbia University and a PhD in Psychology from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology. Her #1 Amazon bestselling book, Patriarchy Stress Disorder: The Invisible Inner Barrier to Women’s Happiness and Fulfillment has been heralded by reviewers as "the most important body of literary work of our modern times" and "perhaps the most important book of the century for women."
Dr. Valerie’s cutting-edge programs have helped thousands of women shift from “how much can I bear?” to “how good can it get?" - from survival to thriving, in their work and personal lives.
