Course objectives:

  • Summarize the differences and similarities between the experience of shame for men and women
  • Define guilt vs. shame—why one is a useful force for growth, while the other keeps us small
  • Discuss the four elements of shame resilience—identifying our triggers, practicing critical awareness, sharing our story, and speaking honestly about shame
  • Discuss empathy as the primary antidote to shame

What does it take to be secure in our sense of belonging and self-worth? We may hustle to attain this security through achievements, meeting expectations, or repeating affirmations to ourselves—but Dr. Brené Brown's research has shown there is ultimately one obstacle to our sense of worthiness. “Shame is the barrier,” she teaches, “and building shame resilience is how we overcome it.” With Men, Women, and Worthiness, Dr. Brown draws upon more than 12 years of investigation to reveal how we can disarm the influence of shame to cultivate a life of greater courage, joy, and love. In this rich and heartfelt examination of this pivotal element of happiness, she invites you to explore:

  • The differences and similarities between the experience of shame for men and women
  • Guilt vs. shame—why one is a useful force for growth, while the other keeps us small
  • The four elements of shame resilience—identifying our triggers, practicing critical awareness, sharing our story, and speaking honestly about shame
  • Empathy as the primary antidote to shame

“Whether you are a man, woman, or child, every one of us has the irreducible need for love and belonging,” Dr. Brown teaches. “A sense of self-worth, unhindered by the inner voices of shame, allows us to meet that need.” With the warmth, candor, and humor that has made her a celebrated speaker, Brené Brown offers a road map for navigating the emotions that hold us back-so we can cultivate a life of authenticity and connection.

Although I've seen Brene Brown's interviews with Oprah Winfrey, this CD set provided a more detailed discussion of Brene's ideas, especially about the ways that achieving worthiness differs between men and women. Very instructive and engaging.

I found this CD to be very wonderfully informative, accessible, and useful - both personally and professionally. While listening to the CD, I found myself thinking of many patients who I thought would benefit from having new ways to think and talk about the influences of gender on feelings of shame, humiliation, embarrassment, etc. Several patients have already responded to my recommendation and I have received great feedback from them as well. I highly recommend this work by Brene` Brown!

Brene Brown is such a compelling and clear speaker. I've loved her TED talk and her other works. This recording disappoints. The shame and unworthiness Brown is talking about here seems "lite" compared to the soul-killing kind I was hoping she'd address. I bought this CD on sale for $5 and feel like I paid $3 too much.

My husband and I have listened to this recording twice already! Brené is so articulate in talking about shame,guilt and more. I am so grateful that she shares her own struggles around vulnerability and "being enough".
Speaking out about shame is very freeing when shared with your " move a body friend". Get the CD and you'll find out what is meant by this!

The material here has had me back on my heels saying "ooooh, now I get it" a dozen times. I come from a family which kept a lot of old world ideas about shame and shunning, and these talks suggest a lot of work to be done to change old mindsets.
Thanks, Brené!

As always Brene delivers top quality content. This is something I would recommend every couple sit down and listen to and, every parent. Not only does it deepen our understanding of our own journey, but also that of our partners and kids. There is an opportunity for connection at a deeper level. Thank you Ms. Brown for such a great piece of work.

LOVE IT! I've heard Brené in other venues and appreciated her down-to-earth manner and approach to hard topics like shame, guilt, feeling like a fraud, and the battle with perfectionism. These are all part of being human, but we're afraid to admit them. It's refreshing to hear someone of her caliber admit her own "gremlins" (her term) freely so those of us who have tried to camouflage our not-so-admirable feelings and behaviors can understand their universality and thus, admit them and begin work to use them as stepping stones to self-acceptance and compassion for others. Plus, she's plain hilarious.

Beware of the shame bomb.

I love Brene Brown. But I feel the need to share this warning. If you, like me, are troubled by shame and it centers around feelings of a false sense of responsibility for the men in your life and their emotional well being and happiness, I recommend waiting to listen to this recording until you have gone deeper into your own healing.

What an eye opener! I bought this CD for a family member struggling with relationships, but decided to preview it first. Am I glad I did! I wasn't aware that I've been holding back in relationships for fear of exposing my vulnerable, imperfect self. I'm astonished how by just opening up, my already good relationships with family, friends and colleagues have catapulted to a whole new level of intimacy and connection. Thank you, Brene! I'll buy additional copies to share, but am keeping this CD for myself.

A friend shared this with my wife. She shared it with me. It has profoundly changed our relationships with ourselves and each other, and as parents we are grateful to have this awareness so that we can better raise our son to feel good about himself.

Brene explains and teaches about shame, guilt and worthiness in way that is easy to hear, easy to understand, and with a perfect touch of her own humanity that releases the inner tension of such a tough topic. In this case, to understand is enough to allow ourselves to change, to begin the journey of removing the veils of shame so that we can more fully realize and live the full potential of the beauty that lies with us all.

Thanks Brene

Candid, honest, & from a deep place of compassion and truth. As a therapist in private practice, I have dealt with individuals struggling with the devastating consequences of Shame for over 20 years. Dr. Brene Brown's work is spot on for helping to provide a process to shine the light on a great source of darkness. I highly recommend this CD to my clients.
