Sarah Polley: Run Toward the Danger

View descriptionShare

Do you ever look back at your childhood and go… certainly that didn’t happen like that? Where were the adults? Academy Award-winning director and childhood actress Sarah Polley describes what it was like to not be believed when she was afraid or when she wanted to stop or when she was in pain or when she was in danger. And how, as adults, we can all better protect those around us and learn to look back on our younger selves with compassion.

  • How hard it can be to believe our own memories or pain
  • When kids aren’t protected by the adults in their life and how they make sense of that as adults
  • Managing invisible illnesses
  • How we can better support those going through chronic illness with compassion
