Tabletop Role-Playing Therapy by Dr. Megan Connell is a guide for clinicians looking to use TTRPGs with their clients. As a layperson, this was also an amazing exploration into why our regular, non-guided sessions and campaigns can feel therapeutic, and it has deepened my perspective on what TTRPGs can be – I hope you find it as engaging as I have!
I got to chat with Jack Berkenstock, Executive Director of The Bodhana Group, about TTRPGs and therapeutics, how The Bodhana Group started and grew, and about turning George Wendt (the actor who played Norm from Cheers) into a wizard. Check out our interview here!
