Program Description:
 
The “People in Crisis” program is an interactive exercise where you will assume the role of a family member with limited resources. You may be newly unemployed, recently deserted by the “breadwinner,” or without additional income. Or you may be a senior citizen receiving Social Security or raising grandchildren. Your task will be to provide for basic necessities and shelter during the course.
The experience includes an introduction, the actual interactive exercise, and a debriefing period in which you will have the opportunity to share your experiences and talk about what you have learned during the exercise.
The exercise is designed to help you better understand what it might feel like to live in a low-income family trying to meet basic needs each month. While we may be intellectually familiar with the statistics of poverty, this exercise will let you experience some of the emotional stresses and frustrations created by having limited resources, as well as the difficult choices people with few resources feel they may need to make in order to survive.
The afternoon will be a more traditional CLE program, where we will discuss bond and sentencing issues, and how poverty affects these issues.

PEOPLE IN CRISIS SIMULATION: An Interactive Program
Sponsored by the Wisconsin State Public Defender’s Office
 
The “People in Crisis” simulation is an interactive exercise with participants assuming the roles of up to 26 different families living with limited resources. Some families are newly unemployed, some are recently deserted by the “breadwinner” and others receive Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), either with or without additional income. Still others are senior citizens receiving Social Security or grandparents raising grandchildren. The task of the “families” is to provide for basic necessities and shelter during the course of one “month” represented by four fifteen- minute “weeks.”
The families have available to them during the exercise a variety of community resources and service agencies, including a bank, food pantry, general employer, payday and title loan company, and social services agency. You will play the roles of the community resources and service agencies.
The experience includes an introduction, the actual interactive exercise, and a debriefing period in which you will have the opportunity to share your experiences and talk about what you have learned during the exercise.
The exercise is designed to help you better understand what it might feel like to live in a low-income family trying to meet basic needs each month.
