Utilizing Dungeons & Dragons to foster social skills and a sense of identity and belonging (without screens).
Each group member designs their own D&D (5th ed.) character with backstory. Through their characters, group members have the chance to try on personality characteristics they don't yet possess or feel confident. While role-playing as that character for the rest of the game, they may also enhance several social skills. Examples of these skills include: empathy, creative problem solving, frustration tolerance, communication and collaboration.
With a therapist as the Dungeon Master, I can facilitate emotional regulation, balance participation, and arrange potential triggers for growth.
No materials or previous D&D experience necessary!
Groups are arranged by age (middle school, high school, adults, etc.) and are gender inclusive.
D&D Professional Team-Building One Shots NOW AVAILABLE!
Tired of trust falls and talking sticks?
Enhance your employees' collaboration and communication skills by nerding out and saving the world together.
