Roll for Wellness 101: Using Role-Playing Games across Group Therapy Settings

3.75 CE credits for Psychologists, Social Workers, Marriage & Family Therapists, & Professional Counselors

Presented by Jacob Glickman, PsyD, MA, LPC

Tabletop role-playing games (TTRPGs) have emerged as one of the most exciting, new formats for group therapy; however, many clinicians question how to actually implement TTRPGs as part of their practice. In this four hour workshop, Dr. Jacob Glickman (creator of the game Roll for Wellness) will highlight the ways that group therapists can take their clinical knowledge and apply it to the world of role-playing, as well as share about the therapeutic potential that such games can offer clients in all settings. This half didactic/half experiential event is intended for all levels of experience with TTRPGs! Handouts will be sent to registrants in advance of the workshop. At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to: 1. Analyze the historical and cultural foundations of tabletop role-playing games (TTRPGs) to contextualize current academic/therapeutic interest in them. 2. Compare the structure and process of TTRPGs with that of group therapy to demonstrate the potential of TTRPGs as a treatment modality. 3. Translate between common terminology of TTRPGs and their counterparts within clinical theory. 4. Apply existing clinical skills to the new modality of therapeutic TTRPGs as preparation for using TTRPGs in treatment contexts. 5. Demonstrate the ability to read and fill out a character sheet, the fundamental tool in the therapeutic TTRPG process. 6. Assess how TTRPGs can enhance clinical practice as either a part of treatment or the primary treatment modality.
