Inside Out and Emotional Health

The animated movie “Inside Out” tells the story of a young girl, Riley, who has to leave her Midwest life behind when her family moves to San Francisco.

Characters depict her primary emotions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness – and the inner conflicts they cause her, as well as her parents, who have their own inner conflicts to deal with.

The movie was named “Best Animated Feature” at the 2016 Oscars.

In her review for Counseling Today magazine, Erin Shifflett writes:

“A person’s mind is a mysterious labyrinth of thoughts, feelings, memories, ideas and compulsions; the mind of a young girl is likely even more complex.

“Disney-Pixar’s latest animated offering, Inside Out, bravely delves into that intricate world in a way that effectively captures the nuances of the way people feel and think—and maybe helps them understand why they act the way they do sometimes.

“Developed with the guidance of University of California, Berkeley psychologist Dacher Keltner, the film tells the tale of Riley, an 11-year old whose family relocates from Minnesota to San Francisco.

“Through the move, Riley loses her friends and beloved hockey team and is forced to transition to a place where pizza is served with broccoli as a topping and the cool girls in school wear eye shadow, much to Riley’s surprise.”

Shifflett describes the role of the “five emotions operating at Headquarters (Riley’s brain): Joy, Sadness, Disgust, Fear and Anger. …

“The importance of Sadness and, indeed, the other less pleasant emotions such as Fear, Disgust and Anger, is highlighted multiple times throughout the film when their roles and functions are explained.”

From Emotion, personified: What “Inside Out” gets right about mental health By Erin Shifflett June 25, 2015.

Inside Out was named “Best Animated Feature” at the 2016 Academy Awards.

Producers and director Pete Docter said in his acceptance speech:

“This film was really born from watching our kids grow up, which is not easy!

“Anyone out there who’s in junior high, high school, working it out, suffering – there are days you’re going to feel sad. You’re going to feel angry. You’re going to feel scared. That’s nothing you can choose.

“But you can make stuff. Make films. Draw. Write. It will make a world of difference.”

The Science Of Emotional Regulation

Emotional regulation is not something we are born with. Toddlers have no emotional regulation skills. Their emotions can swing like a pendulum. Helping our kids learn to self-regulate is one of the most important tasks in raising children.
