The Healing Power of Vulnerability

In Recovery, Research by Emerson Jane BrowneLeave a Comment

I posted a short while ago about a talk by Brené Brown. Here are three of her talks that are extremely wonderful and helpful for any human being, but especially for one who has suffered a TBI. I have listened to all 3 of these numerous times and there is still so much to get in them. These talks are in the order Brené Brown gave them. This is also the order in which I would recommend you watch them. Each of them is around 20 minutes long.

Brené Brown, PhD. studies shame, empathy, vulnerability, courage, joy and love & belonging. These talks are enlightening, encouraging, and most importantly they explain a lot about how we – survivors of TBI and family members too – get caught by feeling ashamed of who we are now post injury.  Brené Brown tells us how to get out of the prison we can unwittingly create.  These videos have changed my life!

Given at the UP Experience conference in Houston, TX.

This second one was given at TEDx Houston. There is a visually cleaned up version that is posted on the site but it is very fuzzy at full screen. This one below is the much higher quality original footage.

I look forward to hearing what people think about these videos. As I said, for me they have been life changing!
