Summary of Finding Nemo
A clown fish, named Marlin, and his son, Nemo, get separated after an argument because Nemo is kidnapped by divers. Marlin then begins a search to find his son, who is now a part of a fish tank in a dentist's office. While searching for Nemo, Marlin is accompanied by a new friend, Dory. On their journey they encounter sharks, jellyfish, turtles, and whales. Meanwhile, at the dentist's office, Nemo and his new found friends are looking for a way to escape and help Nemo get back to the ocean.
Observational Learning
What is Observational Learning?
Theory developed by Albert Bandura in which learning takes place through observing others, retaining information, and then replicating.
In the video the dad crab is cutting the grass. At the end of his patch, he lets his kid cut. The kid knew how to cut the grass based on watching his/her dad.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
What is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)?
Marlin is always worried about Nemo's safety. He constantly relives his wife, Coral's, death.
PTSD is an anxiety disorder typically occurring after an extremely traumatic event. Symptoms include reliving, avoidance, and hyper-arousal.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
What is Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)?
OCD is an anxiety disorder where individuals have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, and/or behaviors that cause them to do something.
Marlin checks his surroundings three times before exiting his home.

Authoritarian Parenting Style and Sympathetic Nervous System
What is Authoritarian Parenting Style?
Parents who use this style have really high demands for their children and are very strict. There is no negotiation with these parents.
Marlin is very strict on Nemo and demands he swims back to him, away from the open sea, and says he is in a lot of trouble after touching the boat.
What is Sympathetic Nervous System?
Part of the autonomic nervous system. This activates the "Flight-or-Fight" response in an individual.
Marlin's sympathetic nervous system activates when Nemo is kidnapped. As he grows more stressed, his breathing becomes heavier and faster, his pupils dilate, and his vision becomes blurry.
Bystander Effect
What is the Bystander Effect?
When individuals are less likely to help someone in need because other people are around. They assume someone else will do it.
When Marlin is frantically asking other fish for help to find the boat, he gets no response. He only receives a response when he separates Dory from the group, and then she is happy to help.
What is Amnesia?
A condition in which memory is disturbed or lost, but to a greater extend than everyday forgetting or being absent-minded.
Dory suffers from a type of amnesia where she knows who she is, but she has trouble forming any new memories. She claims she has short term memory loss, however, her case of amnesia is much like that of Clive Wearling.
What is Accommodation?
Proposed by Jean Piaget, part of the adaption process in which one changes an existing schema or creates a new one based on new information/experiences.
When Dory first sees the mines, she mistakes them for balloons. Upon learning what they really are, she undergoes accommodation and makes a new schema for the mines.
Group Therapy
What is Group Therapy?
When two or more clients work with one or more counselors and can learn from each other and offer advice. ie support groups
The shark gathering and confessing of the last time they ate fish strongly resembles group therapy. Each one of the sharks listens and offers advice in order to complete the goal of not eating fish.
Unconditional Positive Reagrd
What is Unconditional Positive Reagrd?
The acceptance and support of someone regardless of what they may say or do. Proposed by Carl Rodgers.
Even though Bruce tried to eat Marlin and Dory, Anchor and Chum continue to support and accept him, saying he really isn't that bad.
ignore the subtitles!
What is Phobia?
A persistent, irrational fear of a specific object, activity, or situation that causes one to avoid.
Gurgle has an intense fear of the ocean and germs that causes him to avoid both. Each causes him anxiety.
Industry Vs. Inferiority
What is Industry vs. Inferiority?
One of Erik Erikcon's stages of development, during the school age. One learns to cope with new demands in which success equals competence and failure equals inferiority.
Nemo is attempting to prove himself to his classmates by swimming to touch the boat and is unsure of his abilities when he must free himself from the filter. Both successes lead to the development of his competence.
Social Facilitation
What is Social Facilitation?
An improvement on performance because of the presence of others.
Dory's memory somewhat improves while she's with Marlin. She's able to remember the address P. Sherman 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney
What is Deindividualization?
The loss of a person's sense of individuality or self-awareness.
When Marlin and Dory are getting directions from the school of fish, the fish are no longer individuals. They speak and act as a group to give directions.
Hans Selye General Adaption Syndrome
What is Hans Selye General Adaption Syndrome?
The way the body responds to stress in three stages: Alarm, resistance, and exhaustion.
When Marlin is facing the "jellyfish forest" he enters the alarm stage and decides whether he should fight or flight. He enters the resistance stage and adapts to his surroundings or is able to go through it if he does. Finally he enters the exhaustion stage at the end, is no longer able to fight it, and faints.
Permissive Parenting Style
What is Permissive Parenting Style?
Parents have very few expectations for their children but are very involved. They are nurturing, accepting, and responsive, but are not demanding.
Crush is very permissive towards Squirt. He lets him go, roam through the EAC, and make his own mistakes. He is always there for him as a father but demands nothing of him.
Mental Set
What is Mental Set?
Marlin is assuming that people get hurt because he is incapable of helping them. He tried his hardest to save Coral and could not, so regardless of how hard he tried to save Dory, he is convinced his efforts were futile. It turns out Dory was just playing hide and seek.
The tendency to approach situations in a certain way because of what has or has not worked in the past.
What is Stereotype?
A widely held belief, image, or idea of a particular type of person or thing.
Dory is being stereotypical towards men in claiming they have issues with asking for directions. She is the same towards whales in assuming they only speak whale and trying to mimic them.
What is Egocentrism?
The idea that one's self is the center of attention. They can not see any point of view other than their own. This occurs in Piaget's pre-operational stage.
The seagulls believe everything is theirs, like the fish always being for them, and constantly repeating mine.
Flashbulb Memory/Memory Cue
What is Flashbulb Memory/Memory Cue?
The sudden onset of a very clear memory of a significant moment or event. Memory cues set off flashbulb memory.
When dory reads the word Sydney on the sewer, it acts as a memory cue and she experiences a flashbulb memory where she remembers everything she had been through with Marlin.
ignore the bad quality! sorry!
