THERAPEUTIC TABLE TOP ROLE PLAYING GAME
GROUP

What is a Theraputic Table Top Role Playing Game Group?

TTRPG Therapy is a form of group therapy that is led by a licensed counselor and utilizes narration and role play to help group members work as a team to solve problems, improve interpersonal effectiveness, increase frustration tolerance, and emotional resilience through the use of storytelling and gameplay.  Through the game, players will be able to roll dice, create characters, explore unique worlds, join arms to defeat foes.

We utilize a program called Critical Core. Critical Core combines modern developmental therapies with the mechanics of tabletop role-playing games to help participants connect with their friends, their families, and the world around them.* The licensed counselor facilitates as the game master and players learn communication and collaboration skills, develop frustration tolerance and emotional resilience, and build empathy for others, all while rolling dice and having fun.  The counselor also leads game debriefs and guides skill development throughout the process.
