The Invisible Barrier to Women's Happiness and Fulfillment with Dr. Valerie Rein - Counseling & Therapy Services - The Juniper Center
Patriarchy Stress Disorder Valerie Rein The Juniper Center

Intergenerational Trauma nd Patriarchy Stress Disorder


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.
