Running head: MOVIE AND PARENTING Cox 1 A Thesis Presented to The Faculty of Alfred University Inside Out and American Parenting by Jennifer Cox In Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for The Alfred University Honors Program May 10, 2016 Under the Supervision of: Chair: __ Dr Nancy Furlong _____ Committee Members:__ Dr Louis Lichtman ____ __ Dr Robyn Goodman ___ MOVIE AND PARENTING Cox 2 Abstract The release of the Disney/Pixar movie Inside Out raised the question if scientifically accurate entertainment films can be used to educate a population of parents about childhood mental health I conducted a study with two groups of college student participants who took a survey meant to measure parenting attitudes after either playing board games or watching the movie Inside Out I hypothesized that participants who watched the movie would be more likely to make parenting decisions supported by the teachings of the movie The results were analyzed using Chi Square and Repeated Measures ANOVA Some aspects of the hyp othesis were supported, but the majority were not Overall I found that participants' attitudes about parenting were unaffected by the activity they participated in before taking the survey MOVIE AND PARENTING Cox 3 Inside Out and American Parenting Family friendly entertainmen t in the movies has a long history, and the duo team of Disney and Pixar is a giant in the industry Most recently they released Inside Out , an animated full length motion feature about a girl and her emotions When the protagonist, Riley, faces a big change in life, the movie takes the perspective of her emotions as they guide her through the new experience (Lasseter & Docter, 2015) This movie, despite its brief presence in modern media, has already made waves in the psychology community It is being discussed as an exceptional learning tool for children and adults alike to better understand how emotional and cognitive development functio n in the human mind (Scarlet, 2015) It is too soon for any thorough or replicated empirical research about this movie's impact on the public's understanding of emotions to have been published, but the questions raised by this movie should not be ignored If it is true that a family friendly movie has the ability to educate the public about psychology and mental health, this could potentially have a great impact on individuals' understanding of emotions Many individuals may not realize that emotional int elligence develops with age, allowing us to better understand the role each emotion has in our lives and how it can be expressed Many psychologists have their theories of the exact stages of emotional development, such as Erik Erikson and Sigmund Freud, but what the film Inside Out specifically emphasizes is not the stages of development but the particular functions of emotions Riley must learn to recognize For example, throughout the film Riley learns that sadness can be used to fulfill very real needs in her life, and it is possible to feel two emotions at once (Lasseter & Docter, 2015) Lessons like this in the film were made possible by the contributions of psychologists Paul Ekman and Dacher Keltner, two emotion researchers who were asked to be sci entific consultants during the film's production (Judd, 2015) The lesson that most interested
