Abstract : The question whether the researcher concerned with crisis is able to contribute meaningful knowledge to practical concerns is discussed. Experimental simulation as a potential solution to this problem is considered. It is proposed that the experimental simulation is a compromise technique which however does permit to gain practical knowledge for the solving of social problems, and in addition can help to clarify theoretical issues. The Tactical and Negotiations Game Simulation is considered as an example of an experimental simulation technique specifically designed to obtain data on crisis induced stress.
