(use movie and only peer-reviewed articles to support answers, no websites)
From the movie: Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire
Using the film precious family respond to the following questions for the child and an adult in the family:
? Assess their affective states. Would you say they rest more with chaos, with rigidity, in a dance between both polarities, or in a balanced and fluid state?
? Assess the impact of the adult’s affective state.
-How well would you say the adult monitors and modifies his or her affective states?
-What evidence do you see that supports your opinion?
-How would you say the adult’s affective regulation seems to be influencing the younger person’s well-being?
