During her more than 10 years studying human interaction, Dr. Brené Brown has found that people commonly conflate vulnerability with "letting it all hang out." Well, Dr. Brown says, vulnerability is a bit deeper than live-tweeting your bikini wax—it's about trust, intimacy and connection. Plus, Dr. Brown explains why people in tough professions like law enforcement struggle to set aside their shields when they're off the clock, which can lead to suicide, depression and alcoholism.

Brené Brown also has a groundbreaking online course The Living Brave Semester.
