Synopsis

When do you become an adult? What does it mean to grow up? And what are the experiences that propel us forward - or keep us stuck?





As we get older, we pass many milestones, but for some of us it can feel as if adulthood is always just out of reach.





Journalist and psychotherapist-in-training Moya Sarner goes on a journey into what growing up really involves, and how we do it again and again throughout our lives. She draws on case studies, as well as her training, and theories of child psychology, psychoanalysis, neuroscience, and more, to explore what it means to be a 'grown up' and how we can meet the challenges and opportunities of every stage of our lives.

Moya Sarner is an award-winning freelance journalist who writes regular cover stories and inside pieces for the features pages of The Times, The Guardian, New Scientist, Stylist, and other publications. She is particularly interested in psychoanalysis, the unconscious, and what we can and cannot bear to know about ourselves. She is a psychotherapist in training and her first book, which explores how we grow up and what it means to be an adult, will be published in 2022.
