During lunch at the Compassion Focused Therapy workshop, I had a discussion with a couple of therapists that work in correctional institutions with mental health patients, and the reasons why those facilities don't allow RPGs, namely obsessiveness, sexual "deviancy" reinforcement, and especially "bleed" leading to problems...

Techniques I use to reduce inappropriate bleed:

Refer to character by name or in third person pronouns

Enforce Use a distinctive voice when the character is speaking.

Use third person pronouns or character names when saying something or taking action against another PC (rather than you, your).
