ROLE REVERSAL

Strategy intended for treatment and instructive reasons wherein someone swaps roles with somebody else, so as to encounter different thinking patterns, emotions, and behavioral strategies. Protagonists may trade roles with an auxiliary in playing out an important interpersonal scenario; can be employed in supervisory improvement courses, as in a trade of roles between a leader and a member of staff.

ROLE REVERSAL: "The role reversal helped all her coworkers see what she had been enduring."
