This expert level training provides a unique training experience. Participants will be provided with a basic role playing engine and rubric designed to help guide them through small group work as they collaboratively plan and run a therapeutic adventure. Each participant will bring a redacted client example to the training, select goals for their client and plan with other participants how to create a storyline and challenges for an adventure. They will then collaboratively run this adventure for other participants in the role as their players. This gives participants not only the experience of running adventures, but also that of experiencing therapeutic gaming as the client. The rubric used for design is then used as a way to help rate and offer feedback during feedback discussion sessions after play. This training is run over a four day cycle. The Friday and Monday sessions are eight hours long with a one hour break for lunch and groups work independently over the weekend to create their adventures.
