Ruth Ault, Director of the Office of Teaching Resources in Psychology (OTRP) is pleased to announce the posting of a new teaching resource:

"C'est La Vie: The Game of Social Life: A Role-Playing Game for Teaching about Privilege, Oppression, and Intersectionality" (2015) by Kosha D. Bramesfeld (Ryerson University). This resource is an empathy-based privilege and oppression awareness intervention that can be used to help students engage in difficult dialogues surrounding the issues of privilege, oppression, and intersectionality. The materials include (a) 64 character profiles and game sheets that describe the demographic characteristics and resources assigned to each player's character, (b) a strategy game that presents students with a variety of different decision scenarios that interact with their character's resources (described in a 33-slide presentation), and (c) an instructor's guide that covers the development of the game, its recommended uses, and a debriefing and discussion points that help students reflect on the outcomes of the game, its connections with real life inequality, and the role that privilege and oppression might play in the students' own lives. It's available at under the Social Psychology tab, or directly at
