Abstract

A fantasy role-playing game, Dungeons & Dragons, was used in a group of boys to foster adaptive social interaction. The game posed dilemmas & tasks that called for various aspects of mutual aid in the group. Theoretical background, a description of the game, & case material is provided to support the usefulness of this program medium in group work with children. Opportunities in the game for worker interventions & group mutual aid are discussed. The game is evaluated according to the functions & dimensions of program activity as described in the social group work literature. 1 Table, 11 References. HA
