Vision of the future
by Hawke Robinson published Dec 05, 2004 last modified Aug 22, 2017 04:23 PM — filed under: , , , ,
It is still far to early to be sure that this vision for the future will even be relevant several years from now, as the research data begins to roll in, but if any of the core assumptions hold even remotely true, then the long term goal of creating RPG therapy modules could become a reality.

Volunteer RPG Player Archetype II Trainee - Therapeutic Settings
by Hawke Robinson published Jun 29, 2017 last modified Jun 18, 2018 11:28 PM — filed under:
This is an antry-to-mid-level volunteer position. The level 1 player archetype is responsible for filling the role of various role-playing gamer "types". The Level 2 Player Archetype, for Therapeutic Settings, is a staff member that has been trained to respectfully and professionally fulfil this role in therapeutic settings. The participant takes on various Player Archetype roles to help train Game Master Therapists to learn how to address such situations more effectively. Therapeutic player archetype examples include: Autism spectrum, MD, CP, brain injury, etc. This is an approach similar to roles played in First Aid, ICU, Search & Rescue, talk therapy, and similar training programs. This is an excellent means of gaining experience toward other RPG professional positions.

What do you think is a reasonable baseline for "safe" RPG participation? With different populations, when is there "too much of a good thing"? Do you have any anecdotes, or better yet research data that validates any particular stance? I am slowly building up the background for extensive research on the potential therapeutic uses of role-playing games in various formats (tabletop, live-action, computer-based) for various populations (TBI, PTSD, Autism-spectrum, LD's, etc.), with the assumption that there is potential benefit. But what are the potential risks?
