  1. 1. Grade 9 | Unit 9.5 | Page 11 ROLE PLAY SCENARIOS - HOW TO COPE WHEN A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER HAS A GAMBLING PROBLEM With the group, read through the following scenarios. Choose one, decide what characters each person will play and plan how you will role-play your coping responses to the class. Scenarios: 1. Your older sister is feeling very depressed about all the money she's lost on gambling. When you visit her, she starts to cry and says, “I live alone and am often lonely. When I go out and gamble, I forget about that.” 2. Your father has been losing a lot of money on gambling. When the family confronts him about the increasing debts, he says, “I don't have a job and so need to gamble to get money for household expenses and clothes.” 3. Your friend has been gambling and losing a lot of money. He's asked you for a loan and says, “I know how the system works. I'll now be able to win a lot of money. If you don't lend me the money, I will never speak to you again!” Unit 9.5 Learning Activity Sheet
