What Lies Beneath the Words
What Lies Beneath the Words is our filmed adaptation of a session of the same title delivered by Lindsay Wegener, PeakCares Executive Director at CREATEs Youth for Change Conference and at The Encore Sessions hosted by PeakCare and the Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Child Protection Peak in late 2015.
Inspired by the classic suspense thriller, What Lies Beneath starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Harrison Ford, our video delves into the scary things that often lie beneath the words that children and young people encounter, day in and day out, whilst living in care. The real stars of our video are CREATE Young Consultants – Julia, Ben, Codie and Jake. Watch and listen to the frightening things they have to say about the impact of words and language!
