I came across this TED Talk awhile back while researching articles and videos on the topic of shame for a DBT group I lead. It has since gone viral and many of my clients have found it on their own. There is no denying that the ability to tolerate vulnerability is essential to health and happiness and I have never heard it expressed so clearly as in this talk given by Brene Brown, a psychology researcher who spent years studying shame. Watch the entire video here. It’s approximately 20 minutes long and well worth your while.
