Portuguese term or phrase: afeccional
European PT, from the name of a university degree course.

The name of the course is "Jogos Interactivos e Estratégias Afeccionais".

I have never seen this word in Portuguese before, it's not in my dictionaries, and Internet references are scarce.

Obviously the course title is a bit academic/esoteric, so I am hoping to find an English word that captures this.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

It seems to refer to techniques designed to elicit emotional (i.e., "affective" responses).

Boa sorte.

Bingo! Perfect. It seemed the word had something to do with emotions/affect, but the puzzling thing was that it doesn’t exist in any of my monoligual dictionaries. Thanks again.
