Face your demons – literally!
Group members become players in the Dungeons & Dragons tabletop role-playing game, therapeutically facilitated to encourage group members to build social skills to combat depression and anxiety.
Tabletop role-playing games (such as Dungeons & Dragons) can increase confidence, creativity, and problem solving skills – all while having fun playing as powerful adventurers in a fantasy world. Facilitated by a clinical counsellor, this group uses teamwork, role-play, and imagination to encourage participants to meet the challenges they encounter in daily life, and is especially helpful for those suffering from low mood and social anxiety.
