Our Dungeons and Dragons Social Skills Group is starting soon! Fall dates are every Tuesday evening, September 12th-November 14th, from 5:30-6:45 pm (for 10 weeks total). Our group will take place at The Center for Connection, located at 275 E. California Blvd., Pasadena, California 91106.
ABOUT: Join us for a social skills group that rewards players with level ups, loot, epic swords and suits of armor, and tons of fun as we play Dungeons and Dragons*! Group members meet for 75 minutes weekly for 10 weeks to create characters with special powers and abilities and engage in a team-based, structured role-playing game with other adventuring peers. Facilitated by two clinicians playing the Dungeon Master and an in-game guide, group members get to solve complex problems, strategically plan their combat, and creatively use their characters’ unique abilities while being challenged to work together, or perish. Listening skills, patience, turn taking, flexibility, critical thinking, consequences, empathy, and communication will be challenged in an exciting and motivating way as their characters come face to face with monsters, traps, gold, dungeons, and of course dragons!
