On January 10th we will be presenting at OrcaCon in a panel called "+1 to Social Skills: How the Games we Love Can Make Us Better People."
As promised in the last post, here’s the footage from our panel at PAX Prime.
Around 13 minutes in, Adam Johns talks about how a tabletop role playing games are perfect medium for therapy.
Around 15, Adam Davis explains what makes Wheelhouse Workshop groups unique, using the example of the Dwarf at the Dinner Party.
We just returned from our trip to Pennsylvania for Save Against Fear, and it has all been such a wonderful ride, meeting people and talking about the work we’re doing with therapeutic gaming.
Our video of our PAX panel should be posted soon, followed by our video from Save Against Fear, but in the meantime, here were our highlights from PAX Prime:
We are gearing up for our presentation at Penny Arcade Expo, practicing our stories and going over our explanations, excited to use this opportunity to share the world of therapeutic gaming with a whole new audience who may need it. We’ll be sharing the story of the dwarf at the dinner party, in which we helped a young player learn about body language, as well as the tale of the two headed ettin, where we gave two players an opportunity to develop conflict resolution skills. We’ll be filming our presentation, so stay tuned.
