In this episode of BANTR Radio, Marc Komori-Stager, PhD. and Will Sherwin, MFT discuss the playful metaphors of the mind, imagination and emotions illustrated in the Pixar film Inside Out. We discuss the film using a variety of common narrative terms like externalization, agency, and values and examine cultural discourses on emotions.
Dr. Marc is creatively referencing the characters in the film in psychotherapy with children in his private practice at eastbayfamilytherapy.com in Walnut Creek, CA.
Also, check out Narrative Therapy India’s article on Inside Out, “Externalising, the Pixar Way”.
