Determine Optimal Duration of Role-playing Gaming Sessions

Test different durations of game sessions from 45 minutes up to 8 hours, in 1 hour, and later 30 minute increments, to determine the optimal duration for maximal therapeutic benefit per session.

Duration of sessions to be determined, but currently thinking around 3 hours per session once per week. Will test with sessions as short as 45 minutes, and as long as 8 hours, with 1 hour increments in between, and eventually 30 minute increments to attempt to determine the optimal lengthy of time.

Compare differences in results between 6-8 weekly sessions of 45 minutes, versus 3 hours, or 3 sessions at 8 hours, and other combinations.

See which sessions show the most significant changes in baseline immediately at the end of a session, and a week after, versus those that show longevity in changes, for example a month, 6 months, or year later.
