‘Inside Out’ provides roadmap for navigating emotions

“Pixar’s new film Inside Out is putting the spotlight on children’s emotions. But navigating those emotions and helping children understand them is a real-life challenge. FIU psychologist Zoe Klemfuss says understanding the cause of an emotion is often more important than talking about the emotion itself.Inside Out takes viewers on a journey inside the head of Riley, an 11-year-old girl. Her memories and emotions are dictated by a team of characters representing joy, sadness, anger, fear and disgust. The movie focuses on the importance of emotions, even the negative ones, and how parents respond to them.”

“Klemfuss is a researcher at FIU’s Center for Children and Families and is director of the Child Narratives Lab. Her research focuses on how social context and individual differences influence how children talk about past events. She also looks at how individual differences in cognitive and narrative skills affect children’s abilities to report about events they have experienced.”
