On Sunday as the temperature continued to climb into the upper 90’s, I decided to go to the movies.  

The movie, Inside Out 2 was everything I wanted it to be and more. Not only is it a great movie for children but also for adults. 

A certified etiquette expert will greatly benefit from watching “Inside Out 2” due to the film’s deep exploration of emotions and their impact on behavior, which is highly relevant to the teaching of manners and social conduct.

Inside Out 2 Movie and Why Certified Etiquette Experts Need to See It

Why 'Inside Out 2' is a Must-Watch for Children's Etiquette Certification: Emotions, Manners, and More”

Understanding Emotional Influence on Behavior

1. Emotional Awareness: “Inside Out 2” continues to explore the complex landscape of emotions, showing how different feelings can influence thoughts, decisions, and actions. Etiquette involves understanding one’s own emotions and those of others to navigate social interactions gracefully. The movie helps experts illustrate how emotions like joy, sadness, anger, fear, and disgust play crucial roles in how people behave and respond to social situations.

2. Empathy and Perspective-Taking: The movie emphasizes empathy and understanding others’ perspectives, essential components of good manners. By seeing how characters in the movie manage and understand their emotions, an etiquette expert can develop exercises to teach students how to empathize with others, improving their ability to interact considerately and thoughtfully.

Practical Applications in Etiquette Classes

3. Real-Life Scenarios: The scenarios depicted in “Inside Out 2” can serve as relatable examples for students. For instance, how characters handle conflict, manage stress, and express joy can be dissected to demonstrate appropriate and inappropriate responses in real-life situations. This can be particularly useful in role-playing exercises during etiquette training.

4. Emotional Regulation: The film’s portrayal of emotional regulation strategies can be integrated into lessons on managing emotions in social settings. Teaching students how to stay calm under pressure, handle disappointment gracefully, or express happiness without overwhelming others can be enhanced by referencing specific scenes from the movie.

5. Social Cues and Body Language: “Inside Out 2” can help highlight the importance of non-verbal communication. By observing how characters’ body language and facial expressions convey their emotions, certified etiquette experts can teach students to read and respond to social cues more effectively, a crucial skill in practicing good manners.

Enhancing Engagement and Learning

6. Engaging Learning Tool: Using a popular and emotionally engaging movie like “Inside Out 2” makes learning about manners more interesting and relatable, especially for younger students. The visual and narrative elements of the film can help reinforce lessons in a memorable way.

7. Discussion and Reflection: After watching the movie, certified etiquette experts can facilitate discussions about the characters’ emotional journeys and how these relate to real-life experiences. This can encourage students to reflect on their own emotions and behaviors, promoting self-awareness and personal growth.

Incorporating “Inside Out 2” into etiquette classes allows experts to leverage the film’s exploration of emotions to teach key principles of good manners, making the lessons more engaging, relatable, and impactful.
