First Prototype for the PAVE Group of Tabletop RPG as a Modality for Therapeutic / Educational Intervention
by Hawke Robinson published Apr 24, 2014 last modified Oct 13, 2019 12:44 PM — filed under: ,
This is an early prototype version. There are newer, more complete and updated, versions created since this article was posted years ago. This is useful for various populations and professionals from other disciplines wishing to teach participants how to find and use civic resources (police, fire department, doctor, hospital, theater, etc.). This program is based on work at Eastern Washington University with oversight by Professor Emily Messina and others. It has been repeated with similar success when used other groups in private practice through non-profit RPG Research and the for-profit RPG Therapeutics LLC since.

Many of the items in the queue might unfortunately be stuck until the summer holiday from university. Consider this also my public TODO list...

by Hawke Robinson published Feb 25, 2014 last modified Aug 22, 2017 04:21 PM — filed under: ,
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?
