Dungeons & Dragons & Social Skills

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The value of role play has been recognized for decades as a low risk way to help people rehearse interpersonal interactions and coping strategies. Dungeons and Dragons, and other roleplaying games, can serve a similar same function for students. In fact, they have an advantage over free-form role play due the carefully constructed worlds and rules integral to play. The codified structures help students by providing clearly defined and understandable frameworks in which to act. In this session we will look at what roleplaying games are and how they can be used as a way to improve social skills, resiliency, and self-confidence.
