PostPosted: Wed Mar 25, 2015 1:36 pm    Post subject: Presenting at WSTRA Conference - RPG as Therapy WSTRA Con 16

Just an update, I will be speaking April 11th, 2015 at the Washington State Therapeutic Recreation Association 16th Annual Conference about using role-playing games for therapeutic and educational interventions from a therapeutic recreation perspective.

Here is more detail:
http://rpgresearch.com/blog/presenting-at-wstra-conference

My Topic: "Therapeutic and educational uses of role-playing games (RPG) as intervention modalities for individuals and groups from the Therapeutic Recreation perspective."

This covers all forms of role-playing games, tabletop, live-action, computer-based, and choose-your-own-adventure.

This is my first TR-related presentation to the TR professionals. My previous presentations have been at gamer-related communities.

Wish me luck!

Instructional Methods

Lecture, audience discussion participation, followed by Q&A discussion. Initial lecture with PowerPoint presentation and array of example RPG-related materials (dice, miniatures, maps, modules, books, etc.), interactive discussions and examples with audience participants, short interactive quiz (electronic and/or paper and pencil), followed by open audience Q&A.



Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this session, participant will:

Identify and explain existing research indicating the benefits and risks of diversionary use of RPG in all major formats.

Identify and explain examples of specific areas that non-adapted RPG can directly achieve TR-related client outcomes.

Identify specific populations that can benefit from a TR-based RPG intervention program.

Identify and illustrate examples of specific areas that applying TR methodologies to adapted RPG can achieve specific client outcomes.

Specify areas still needing further research for future use of TR-based RPG.



Session Outline
Total 90 minutes session.

Segment (Minutes) - Description

1. (5) – Introduction.

2. (5) – Brief history of RPG.

3. (5) – Overview and explanation of key components of a role-playing game, and the differences in formats (tabletop, computer-based, LARP).
