PBs in Hollywood was created by judith
Choosing to have a family afternoon at the cinema, we went to watch The Minions movie today. As with lots of things, it wasn't long before the PBs started come into focus! Cute as some would say they are, I felt irritated by the Minions language --- I could not understand hardly anything they said! "Shared meaning!" declared a close family member, feeling proud at his own PBs awareness. Lots in there about networks, feeling safe, early warning signs, safety continuum, and lots more.

Additionally, I saw a trailer for a new Disney flick "Inside Out" which looks to be about Feelings Thoughts Behaviour.....



Lots to think about perhaps in a one-step removed way?....

Hi Judith,
Just watched the trailer for 'Inside Out' and can see wonderful opportunities to highlight feelings, thoughts & behaviour. Also love that the soundtrack is Boston's 'More than a Feeling' which is one of the tracks on my 'Now that's what I call PBs' album.
Yet more examples of the fact that there's so many ways to share and illustrate the PB process in action!

Love the trailer for "Inside Out" and will definitely be taking 2 children who I help with their homework.... looks like a potentially great opportunity to reinforce some of the PB messages I have been including to help them risk on purpose with their homework sometimes and deal with little bursts of anxiety they experience when we are doing stuff they get stuck with, or think they can't do! I just hope the movie is done in such a way that it is not too difficult to bridge between what looked like the four key "emotions" characters to all the other emotions!

thanks for the post Judith

Looking forward to seeing the film in the next couple of weeks. Just read this review from the BBC and find myself wanting to shout outloud:
'Feelings are Feelings
Behaviour is a Choice with an Effect
& Thinking can Influence Both'

Feel sure that one day more people will realise that we don't have to become the feeling as in 'I am happy, sad, angry etc. And instead 'just' feel the feeling. :woohoo:

PS And maybe on another day in the future we'll see the launch of PBs-The Movie or even PBs-The Musical - feeling really silly now :silly:

Hi There,
Went to see 'Inside Out' yesterday afternoon with the family and felt interested to chat about it after and hear all the differing opinions. Very few children were in the cinema at the time so couldn't guage their colllective opinion.

For me, I am left wondering if this could be a film that 'grown-ups' really need to see in terms of understanding how early childhood experiences shape a child's brain. It reinforced the Architect role adults have and how resilience can be built as well as damaged.

One message I thought was really PB consistent was the need for acknowledgement of feelings and the fact that it is totally unrealistic to expect children to feel happy all the time. By acknowledging a wider range of feelings, people can hopefully feel free to talk about how they feel rather than mask a feeling with a behaviour or pretend that everything is alright.

I feel really interested to hear what others think about the movie especially some children's views.

PS Must admitt to most of us shedding a few tears as we watched :(

I went to see Inside Out last week with a girlfriend - we were the only adults in the cinema without children! Felt like we may be viewed as the creepy child catchers in the middle row!!!

Great film, so clever in terms of prompting thinking about how we can use our thoughts to change how we feel and that feelings can come one after the other about the same event.

I have to say I wondered how much the children would have understood about what the film was saying, I'd be very interested to hear from others who have spoken to children post viewing.

At a certain point I was a little choked and shed a quiet tear :(
At the same time my friend asked in a hoarse and croaky voice if I had a tissue :ohmy: :lol:
