Brené Brown on connection, shame & empathy

We have previously posted Brené Brown’s lovely definition of connection, which aligns with our own and is person-centred to its core. It stands repeating:-

“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.” 

Brené Brown

Today’s post also includes this short film, in which she is – amongst other things – talking about how connection relates to her research into vulnerability, shame and empathy:-
