Dungeons and Dragons Social Skills Group

  • THE CENTER FOR CONNECTION 1021 E Walnut Ave, #200 PASADENA, CA (map)

Join us for another group adventure in our Dungeons and Dragons 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 mins. weekly for 8 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!
