Sisterhood Heals: The Transformative Power of Healing in Community
'A wonderful, wise and necessary book ... Reading it felt like receiving an enveloping, comforting hug. I only wish it had existed sooner!' Malorie Blackman 'Full of guidance and insights for a more fulfilling and joyful life' Nedra Glover Tawwab, author of Set Boundaries, Find Peace Friendships are some of the longest-standing and most important relationships you can have. But while there are plenty of books, articles and quizzes that tell you everything you need to know about romantic love, there is far less focus on how to navigate a friendship. This book puts your unique connection with other women at the center, to help you build and sustain the mutually supportive friendships we all need. As a clinical psychologist with over twenty years of experience, Dr. Joy Harden Bradford has seen first-hand the power of community and the positive impact it has on our health and wellbeing. She's also witnessed the unique challenges that Black women face in building and maintaining friendships. That's why she created a sisterhood community of over half a million members. Drawing on Dr. Joy's expertise in group therapy, Sisterhood Heals covers everything from holding space for our friends, to dealing with common arguments, setting firmer boundaries, and navigating the pain of a friend breakup. You will learn how to show up authentically in your relationships, nourish a supportive community, and ultimately create a more fulfilling and connected life for yourself and those around you.
