Editorial Reviews


"Groundbreaking, fascinating, and sobering. Finally--we have an explanation. This seminal work of Dr. Valerie Rein is a must read for every woman in the process of unlocking her own ultimate fulfillment and success."
- Ali Brown,CEO + Entrepreneur Mentor

"The greatest barriers for women now and ahead are internal. Especially as the gender equality movement adds more responsibility to women's plates--we need a new movement that gives women the tools to manage and optimize their mental health so they can rise in leadership with greater ease and joy. Dr. Valerie has some of the most groundbreaking solutions I have seen. Whether you're in the corporate or entrepreneurial world, starting out or advanced in your career, this is a must-read for all women."
- Claudia Chan, Creator of S.H.E. Summit & This Is How We Rise leadership book, podcast, and course

"Mind Blowing. I was immediately impacted by Dr. Valerie's definition of trauma. I have it so great. I am blessed. I have a good family. I'm lucky for a life of opportunity. These messages blind us to years of trauma that impacts every single area of our lives. Not to mention the trauma we carry from our ancestors and the collective of women today.

Through beautiful storytelling, facts and research, and heartfelt relation to what really is going on in our lives, Dr. Valerie creates a transformation. From that feeling of something not being quite right, to understanding, to actionable steps, and finally to power, Patriarchy Stress Disorder is required reading for women if we are to realize our power and impact our world. THANK YOU Dr. Valerie for the work you are doing for women and for our world!"
- Carrie SechelFormer Deloitte Partner, Business Consultant, Author, Speaker

"Dr. Valerie is the go-to expert on identifying and healing the complex effects of intergenerational, cultural, and personal traumas that all humans carry. These have a profound impact on how we show up in life and at work and how we work with each other. The fields of Human Resources and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and anyone concerned with advancing equality and empowerment should be paying attention to Dr. Valerie's work."
- Jennifer BrownFounder, President & CEO, Jennifer Brown Consulting (JBC) Author, Inclusion and How to be an Inclusive Leader

"As a single mom I resonated with the constant guilt and fear of passing along my issues to my twin girls. After reading this amazing book, I now will focus on being unconditionally ok with myself and passing that on to my girls. Instead of the way I have been surviving my life, I want to thrive --and now I have a way to do it!

This book is a masterpiece. Just like a really good movie, its message sticks: How good can it get? It inspired me to take a new direction with my team and we had a great meeting this morning. We agreed to work together to change from being reactive to proactive! Thank you Dr. Valerie for sharing the light with us!"
- Dr. Jill Wade, Owner of Stonebriar Smile Design

"We can't untie the knots we cannot see. In this brilliantly written and courageous book, Dr. Valerie Rein makes visible the web of knots that hold us back. Her writing captures your imagination and your heart and takes you for a ride through your own history of setbacks and self-limiting behaviors. Join the women Dr. Valerie has helped break through the chains of PSD by reading this amazing book. The stories, research and practices in Patriarchy Stress Disorder will inspire you to live from your best Self. I could not put this book down, and I learned something new about myself on every page. Thank you, Dr. Valerie!"
- Amy Weintraub, Founder of LifeForce Yoga, author of Yoga for Depression and Yoga Skills for Therapists

"Dr. Valerie helps us better understand the invisible programs encoded in our DNA that subconsciously affect us. Corporate executive women, especially in Healthcare, are affected by cardiovascular disease, weight gain, eating disorders, addiction, depression, anxiety, issues with sleep, and ultimately burnout. Backed with eye-opening data, Patriarchy Stress Disorder uncovers the invisible root of the issues that plague powerful women and offers scientifically-informed exercises that readers can begin putting into practice immediately. I would love to see PSD included in every Psychology textbook."
- Dr. Anne Arvizu, CEO, RxER Communications Corp.
