When I was in nursing school we did many patient/client-nurse simulations that were, for all intents and purposes, role playing games. Especially in psych nursing. I got to play a herion addict checking into a treatment center in one session, and was praised by my instructor on my performance.
In therapy, they use role playing scenarios to help patients practice newly learned coping skills.
My mom is a history professor, and antebellum South is one of her focuses. She’s been very encouraging of my writing this game, and I often think of how she might be able to use it in some of her classes.
