What is a
Dungeons and Dragons

Dungeons and Dragons (colloquially known as D&D) is a table top role playing game which invites players to engage in collaborative storytelling to go on expansive adventures with others while using dice to support the storytelling outcomes. Players create characters who are lead by a Game Master (GM), who leads/supports the players as they interact with the world the story takes place in. A game can last as short as a few hours for one time, or several short sessions over a longer period of time in what are called "campaigns". 

D&D provides a space for teens and adults alike to connect with peers, as well as try on and play with aspects of their own identity. The creative aspects of this game also provide opportunities to develop and explore social skill building, emotional regulation, mistake making, and communication. Often, folks find this a safer space to try on different ways of being in connection with others due to the imaginative qualities of the game.

What a Therapeutic D&D group is....and isn't!

This D&D group is a therapeutic space for teens who are struggling with identity, mood, relationships and seeking a space to find others to be in community with in navigating those areas of struggle. While folks in this group may have therapeutic needs, this group differs from other kinds of group therapy in that there is no direct processing of symptoms or mental health diagnoses. The group is run by a licensed mental health counselor who holds the space for those in the group and often supports the group in navigating areas of discomfort.
