Free Movie Event at Salmar Classic Theatre

“Sensitive: The Untold Story” Movie Event

In Partnership with Okanagan College, LASS is co-presenting a free showing of the movie “Sensitive: The Untold Story” on Friday, April 28th at 10:00 am at the Salmar Classic Theatre in Salmon Arm.

Do you cry easily? Do you often get accused of over-reacting or being too sensitive? Do you have a high degree of empathy? Do you find that good and bad things affect you more deeply than those around you? You might be one of the 20 percent of the population who are highly sensitive individuals, an often misunderstood physiological trait examined in depth in the new documentary “Sensitive: The Untold Story”.

923950This ground-breaking documentary about the temperament trait of high sensitivity found in 20% of the population in both men and women is based on the findings of bestselling author-psychologist Dr. Elaine Aron (“The Highly Sensitive Person”). It explores not only what it means to be an HSP but also what it means to teach them, work with them, raise them, and love them.

Early Childhood Educators are able to receive a certificate for professional development hours!

The event is being promoted to School District No. 83 staff as a Professional Development opportunity as well as to LASS members and volunteers and to students in the Foundational Program Department at Okanagan College.

Tracy Riley, one of the instructors in the Foundational Programs Department, will lead a group discussion after the movie. There will also be door prizes, information sheets, coffee, tea, and a light snack!

RSVP to Tracy Riley by Monday, April 24 at triley@okanagan.bc.ca or 250-832-2126 ext. 8326.

We acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia.
