How to Live in an Unkind World
Shanna B. Tiayon • TEDxUStreetWomen
Shanna B. Tiayon, PhD, tackles the topic of unkindness, which she defines as a form of interpersonal trauma. Using her family’s 2018 experience with a National Parks Service bus driver at the Grand Canyon as an illustration, she makes the connection between experiences with unkindness and guardedness; an absence of vulnerability. She offers viewers three alternatives to guardedness that can help them navigate unkindness and still be able to choose vulnerability.
