This training is intended as supplemental instruction for clinicians interested in adapting tabletop role playing games for use in individual therapy. The instruction will primarily address the process integrating RPG’s into weekly sessions with a client, as well as identifying rewards and potential pitfalls of this application. We will emphasize these notions in the context of several case examples where Dungeons and Dragons, 5E was used. Please note, this training assumes participants have undergone prior instruction regarding TTRPG’s and their applied use in group settings.
