Kids and teens often struggle on their individual journeys to adulthood, not knowing who they are, or where they fit in.
Role playing games help kids and teens by allowing them to pick and use character strengths that they may wish they had in real life.
What’s unique to role playing games is that they allow kids and teens to use strengths such as problem solving, resilience, perseverance, and developing interpersonal skills, through the roll of the dice and storytelling.
Therapists now recognize how using role playing games in therapy to engage kids and teens can often times be more productive than traditional talk therapy; using a non-direct approach not only allows kids and teens to have fun in therapy, but it allows them to discover parts of themselves that they either have, or can further develop.
Role playing games not only build real life character strengths, but they are fun!
