Summary/Abstract: The development process of RePlay, an interactive 3D gaming platform used as an instrument for psychological counselling in schools for children (10-14 years old) with a low level of antisocial behaviour (ASB), involved two years of research and tests during a European FP-7 project. This paper presents the methodology used in the final phase of Work Package (WP) 4 for the validation of ethical and socio-organizational RePlay criteria. It also describes how this methodology has been put into practice and how the assessment tools were constructed and utilized in order to conduct a socio-organizational and ethical assessment into the effectiveness and impact of the RePlay technology. The application of this methodology in three countries involved in the project (Romania, Spain and United Kingdom) allowed making the recommendations for RePlay counseling strategies. Evaluation of the game platform according to the criteria by reference to ethical aspects and socio-organizational impact was made by experts in the psycho-pedagogical field.
