Joyce McFadden, NCPsyA is a psychoanalyst and author of the groundbreaking book Your Daughter's Bedroom: Insights for Raising Confident Women. Based on her unprecedented study of 450 women, in which women could talk about whatever was important to them, it was the women of her study who determined the book’s topic: how girls learn about sexuality from their mothers. Currently being taught in university women’s studies programs, Your Daughter’s Bedroom is considered “an empowering resource for mothers and daughters everywhere" by Publishers Weekly, and "a fascinating and empowering text for women of all ages" by Kirkus Review. McFadden has an MSW from Columbia University, and is a faculty member, training analyst and clinical supervisor at the Training and Research Institute for Self Psychology. She’s a featured writer for the Huffington Post, and her research has appeared in O The Oprah Magazine, The Detroit Free Press, Ms.Magazine.com, CNN.com, Alternet.com, Feminist.com, Intent.com and the Women's Media Center.
