Brené Brown Books
I Thought It Was Just Me was Brené’s first work. She self-published it as Women and Shame: Reaching Out, Speaking Truths and Building Connection back in 2004. It introduces readers to her research on shame and shows how universal the experience of shame really is.
Daring Greatly is the perfect place to start for those new to Dr. Brown’s work. As a therapist, you’ll find yourself using concepts and teachings from this in session often, particularly when clients struggle with shame. It’s a great one to have clients read between sessions to help with their growth.
Rising Strong is a wonderful book on its own but is especially helpful when read after Daring Greatly. Dr. Brown takes her research on shame, vulnerability, and courage to another level. She teaches readers to own their stories and includes chapters on parenting and work.
