Inside Out, a movie produced by Pixar Animation Studios in 2015, follows the story of Riley Andersen, a young girl experiencing a move to a new city. In the movie, Riley exhibits symptoms of major depressive disorder Riley grew up with her parents in Minnesota, having many joyous childhood memories such as playing hockey and enjoying time with friends. At age 11, Riley’s family moves to San Francisco, California for her father’s new business. Already being skeptical of the move to begin with, Riley beings to have a series of bad first impressions with the move; the house they move into appears old and cramped, the moving van with all of their belongings drives to the wrong place, her father becomes very stressed from his new job, and embarrassing …show more content…
Viewers can assume that Riley’s distress lasted at least two weeks as they moved and significant events occurred within the story; but, the actual length of time is unclear. According to DSM-5 criteria, symptoms of major depressive disorder must be displayed for two weeks to be diagnosed as so; therefore, if Riley’s symptoms did not last two weeks, she did not have major depressive disorder. People who actually suffer from this disorder can experience these symptoms anywhere from two weeks to around a year. At the end of the movie, it cuts to a year in the future, and Riley has settled and adjusted to her new home, now much more happy and joyous. Although Riley’s timeline is a little unclear, it can be assumed that her symptoms lasted at least two weeks. Other than this, Riley’s symptoms remained pretty accurate to the DSM-5 criteria people experience with this illness, which lead to the diagnosis of major depressive …show more content…
The goal of cognitive-behavioral treatment is to adapt the patient’s thoughts; as Riley is thinking of how she is failing to deal with the present situation she is in, this treatment will help her change this thinking. In this treatment, Riley’s patterns of thinking would be recognized over a series of appointments, and the clinician would then identify different ways of viewing the same situations Riley has been dealing with, making them not as dysfunctional for her. As well as cognitive-behavioral treatment, physical activity can also combat depression because it releases endorphins; this treatment would be accessible to Riley, and it is something that can be self-initiated as well as encouraged by her parents. These treatments would be ideal for Riley as they encourage her to better her illness without antidepressants since she is so
The case would be approached with the notion that a persons' way of thinking affects their feelings and actions regarding any particular situation. Approaching the case from this perspective forms the basis for cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). The CBT approach allows the individual to develop a positive response to life challenges even though the situation may tend to remain similar. CBT focuses on learning, unlike other psychotherapeutic approaches which rely in abundance on analyzing and exploring individual's relationship with their immediate environment. The therapist’s role in CBT is to guide the patient through a learning process on how to develop and implement new methods of thinking and behaving throughout
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a method of correcting invalid thought patterns to a more positive view of the person and their place in their world. Some people do not believe that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a real treatment for depression, claiming it is a form of positive thinking ("The Daily Mail," 2009). On the opposite end of the spectrum, others argue that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy should be used in all therapies for depression as it allows the patient to take an active role in their treatment. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the benefit of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as a viable treatment of depression, either as a stand-alone therapy or in conjunction with other therapies.
...d that in four treatment trials, cognitive therapy for depression is superior to pharmacotherapy in reducing relapse, or the need for further treatment. (Blackburn, Eunson & Bishop, 1986; Simons, Murphy, Levine & Wetzel, 1986; Evans, Hollon, De Rubeis, Piasecki, Grove, Garves & Tuason, 1992; Shea, Elkin, Imber, Sotsky, Watkins, Collins, Pilkonis, Leber, Krupnick, Dolan & Parloff, 1992). Therefore, it can be seen that many qualitative and quantitative reviews now conclude that cognitive therapy effectively treats depression, or is at least comparable, if not, superior to medication treatment, and may have lower rates of relapse in comparison to medication treatments. As a result, the implications of the cognitive theory and the treatment used to process Beck’s theory, cognitive therapy, has been a successful treatment in regarding depression, and many other diseases.
Depression is an illness within itself that affects the “whole body”. (Staywell,1998) The body, feelings, thoughts, and behavior are all immensely altered when someone is depressed. It is not a sign of personal weakness, or a condition that can be wished or willed away. For some people depression is just temporary, but for others it can last for weeks, months and even years.
Inside out is a movie about a girl named Riley Anderson who is born with five emotions joy, sadness, fear, disgust and anger. These emotions are housed in Riley’s mind called headquarters. Each emotion plays a very big role in Riley’s life because they chose how she should feel during every second of the day since she was born. As riley got older things changed and her parents decided to move to San Francisco. Moving to a different state and city really made Riley’s life go downhill. Riley’s emotions fear, anger, disgust, and sadness were put into effect when she realizes she has to start a new school, and make new friends. Joy is displayed as a character who take charge and is always happy. For example, joys doesn’t like when other emotion
“Cognitive-behavior therapy refers to those approaches inspired by the work of Albert Ellis (1962) and Aaron Beck (1976) that emphasize the need for attitude change to promote and maintain behavior modification” (Nichols, 2013, p.185). A fictitious case study will next be presented in order to describe ways in which cognitive behavioral therapy can be used to treat the family members given their presenting problems.
Cognitive behavioral therapy is an approach used by psychotherapists to deal with emotional and behavioral behaviors. One of the issues associated with this type of therapy is the approach can be used in the treatment of other diseases related to emotional and physical stress. According to...
Kristen Truempy opens up to Deirdre, a listener from Cape Town in regards her personal journey with depression. Instead of writing Deirdre an email, she decided to answer through podcast by helping others who are dealing with depression. According to Kristen “when people face socially and professionally disturbed in their life. People with depression face change in their sleep, daily activities, movement problems, ability to loose concentration, and suicidal thoughts, and feeling worthless.”
Depression is a state characterized by a sad mood and loss of interest in one’s usual activities with feelings of hopelessness, suicidal thoughts, psychomotor agitation or retardation and trouble concentrating. (Nolen-Hoeksema, & Rector, 2011, p.297) Depression is a common major health problem that significantly affects the patient as well as generating extensive costs for the society. (Johansson, Nyblom, Carlbring, Cuijpers & Andersson, 2013) Thus, it is really important that this illness can get treated with the right therapies to minimize the negative impacts on the individual’s quality of life. Psychodynamic treatments are developed from Sigmund Freud’s theory of psychoanalysis which formulates t...
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is among the most extensively tested psychotherapies for depression. Many studies have confirmed the efficacy of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) as a treatment for depression. This paper will provide background information about the intervention, address the target population, and describe program structure and key components. It will also provide examples of program implementation, challenges/barriers to implementing the practice, address how the practice supports recovery from a serious mental illness standpoint and provide a summary. Although there are several types of therapy available to treat depression and other mood disorders, CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) has been one of the most widely used. It is thought to be very effective in treating depression in adolescents and adults. CBT is targeted to quickly resolve maladaptive thoughts and behaviors without inquiring greatly into why those thoughts and behaviors occur as opposed to other forms of psychotherapy.
Likewise, Beck asserts that depression stems from a person’s maladaptive thoughts, which help to construct their reality (also known as schemata). For example, Beck’s cognitive triad and how it associates to Jane’s maladaptive ways of thinking can create and maintain Jane’s emotions and behaviors. Wherein, Jane has a negative perception of her personal world and of herself. In addition to a negative outlook regarding her personal future. So cognitive therapy can help to eliminate and restructure Jane’s automatic thoughts. In addition, the therapist should take into consideration, offering Jane the Beck’s Depression Inventory (BDI). Wherein, Jane can give a self-report and allow the therapist insight on whether or not depression has an influence
Cognitive behavioural therapy has been proven to be effective in the treatment of child and adolescent depression (Lewinsohn & Clarke, 1999; Harrington et al, 1998, March et al, 2004). There is general agreement in the clinical literature that the techniques of cognitive behavioural approaches to therapy are likely to be effective in treating depression (Brewin, 1996; Beech, 2000).
Pete Docter, the same director who brought you the beloved Disney films, Up, Monsters Inc. and Toy Story, brings the latest Disney Pixar film, Inside Out. “Inside Out is undoubtedly the bravest story that Disney-Pixar has ever tackled together” (Rotten Tomatoes). However, like these previous beloved Disney movies, Inside Out also teaches valuable lessons. The movie starts off with the peculiar question, “Do you ever look at someone and wonder what is going on inside their head?” and follows up with, “What might such psychic events actually look like?” Well this 102-minute film meets these challenges with an eccentricity that is simply eye opening.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a form of therapy which can be used to treat a wide range of mental health problems. Cognitive Therapy is an active, directive, time limited, structured approach used to treat a variety of psychiatric disorders, for example depression, anxiety, phobias (Beck, 1967). It emerged as a rational amalgam of behavioural and cognitive theories of human behaviour and is based on the idea that our thoughts determine our behaviour and feelings (Kendall PC, 1979). On average a patient attends between 5 and 20 appointments with their therapist. (Blenkiron 2013)
Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy has its foundations in two distinctive therapeutic theories, Cognitive Therapy and Behavioural Therapy. Cognitive Therapy (CT) believes that thoughts, feelings and behaviour are connected. CT states and an individual with help; can identify an issue that is causing a behavioural or an emotional response and correcting that thinking to achieve a desired outcome. Behavioural Therapy believes that individual’s behaviour is due to conditioning during the early years of life and as such can be altered with conscious awareness. Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy is a combination of both of these theories and is based on an individual’s own history of thought an...
