Why Choose Us As Your Services Provider?
We Provide the World's Most Comprehensive Role-Playing Game Training for Professionals.
Yes, that is a bold statement, supported by evidence and the facts.
Our workshops have been developed and refined through over 40 years of real-world applied experience! Also very importantly our programs are supported by decades of research and evidence-in-practice for a broad array of populations and professions, with measurable results, using assessment tools backed by 0.8 or better coefficients in validity and reliability.
There is a reason why the Public Broadcast System (PBS), Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), Spokane School District, Navos Mental Health, and others choose us as their services and training provider, we are second to none in our comprehensive knowledge and experience.
We provide the most comprehensive training as the world's most experienced organization related to role-playing game therapy and education. Professional peers and conventions introduce our founder as the "grandfather of therapeutic gaming. He has been tracking and involved in the therapeutic and educational application of role-playing games longer than anyone else."
We have been involved with role-playing games since 1977, studying their effects since 1983, providing programs in schools since 1983, with incarcerated populations since 1989, and with special needs therapeutic populations since 2004.
We are decades ahead of everyone else in our research and evolution of the programs compared to all the others that have only recently started to pop up here and there.
Unlike other providers, we provide you with far more than their rudimentary, outdated, and in some cases outright wrong approaches and perspectives (as proven by the data), on the best approaches for optimizing the RPG experience to achieve goals.
While everyone else is decades behind, we can help you learn the up to date information on the most effective and safest approaches for integrating role-playing games (tabletop, live-action, electronic, and hybrids) into your programs supported by more than 30 years of active research with tens of thousands of participants.
Of course, learning begins with the basics, so you will want to start at the beginning, and then build on the knowledge base to receive the world's most comprehensive training on professionally applied role-playing gaming.
