TEDxKC / Brené Brown on Shame, Anxiety, and Social Behavior
Next week Kansas City hosts the second annual TEDxKC conference.
In the first portion of our program, Steve Kraske talks with Mike Lundgren, moderator of TEDxKC. TEDxKC is the local version of a long-running national program of conferences and other activities that harness the brain power of prominent thinkers to address large social issues.
Our lives are a collection of stories – truths about who we are, what we believe, what we come from, how we struggle and how we are strong. When we can let go of what people think, and own our story, we gain access to our worthiness – the feeling that we are enough just as we are, and that we are worthy of love and belonging.
Later on today's program, we talk with Dr. Brené Brown, a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work. She will be speaking during TEDxKC at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.
