(Subtitle Note: The audio seems to be taken from an event that Dr Brené Brown has spoken at, which is why there is crowd laughter.)

What is the best way to ease someone's pain and suffering? In this beautifully animated RSA Short, Dr Brené Brown reminds us that we can only create a genuine empathic connection if we are brave enough to really get in touch with our own fragilities.

Voice: Dr Brené Brown
Animation: Katy Davis (AKA Gobblynne)
