About Dr. Brené Brown and her work

Brené Brown Ph.D. LMSW is a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past 14 years studying connection, Wholehearted Living (engaging with the world from a place of worth and belonging) vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame. Her groundbreaking research has been featured on PBS, NPR, CNN, The Katie Show, and Oprah Winfrey's Super Soul Sunday.

Brené is the author of several #1 New York Times Bestsellers, and sees the progression of her work as follows:

The Gifts of Imperfection (2010) – Be you, imperfections and all. Live from a place of worthiness that says No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough. Yes, I am sometimes afraid, but I am also brave. And, yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable, but that doesn't change the truth that I am worthy of love and belonging.

Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the way we Live, Love, Parent, and Lead (2012) – Be all in. Show up, be seen, and live brave in your life. Stop playing small!

Rising Strong (2015) – Fall. Learn. Get up. Try again. Don’t let your falls define who you are; write your own ending!

Brené's 2010 TEDx Houston talk, The Power of Vulnerability, is one of the top ten most viewed TED talks in the world, with over 11 million viewers. Additionally, Brené gave the closing talk at the 2012 TED conference where she talked about shame, courage, and innovation.
