Abstract

Practicing nurses can benefit by learning to differentiate their caretaking (potentially destructive) from their caregiving (constructive) behaviors, and by learning strategies to facilitate caregiving. A new simulation/game was developed to assist nurses to recognize codependent behaviors in themselves and others and to practice some alternative patterns of behavior. This team-based simulation/game, "The Climb," uses the metaphor of a mountain-climbing expedition. The experiences of the journey promote dynamic insights into the consequences of codependency in the professional and personal lives of the nurse.
