'An innovative, evidence-based approach to address trauma and aid recovery'.

 Game Therapy UK  is an exciting new charity providing innovative, evidence-based therapeutic games (“Dungeons and Dragons Therapy”) to groups across the UK, including people experiencing homelessness, people in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction and military veterans exposed to psychological trauma/ PTSD.

 What is Game Therapy?

Game therapy is similar to Drama Therapy in that players can act out scenarios in a safe, controlled, psychologically informed environment to facilitate creativity, imagination, learning, insight, and growth.

However, it differs from traditional Drama Therapy in that it uses collaborative Role Playing Games(RPGs), such as 'Dungeons & Dragons’ type games or video games, to intentionally achieve these therapeutic goals.

And you get to play a game. So it's fun.
