Licensed psychologist and host and founder of Therapy For Black Girls, Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, added “author” to her impressive list of titles with the release of her first book, “Sisterhood Heals: The Transformative Power of Healing in Community” last month. The multihyphenate is on a #summerofsisterhoodtour celebrating the power of sisterhood among Black women, and #HerAgendaLive was one of her tour stops.

In her debut book, Dr. Harden Bradford delves deep into the power of Black women’s friendships, offering a psychological perspective that enriches our understanding of nonromantic bonds. In a culture that may sometimes overlook these connections, her book reminds us that our relationships with our girls are not merely secondary. They are essential, deserving of the same care, attention, and intention that we invest in any other significant relationship in our lives.

In this impactful conversation, Dr. Harden Bradford educates #HerAgendaLive viewers on the four sister-friend archetypes, how to make new friends as an adult, navigating work friendships, the importance of bridging the gap between online and in-person communities, and much more. 

The expert also provides practical tips on supporting friends through life-changing events and rebuilding trust.
