I've updated the section excerpt from the RPG Handbook of Practice page I wrote in 2013 about RPG adaptation considerations for those with visual impairment. Useful for laypersons and professionals. This is an extension of the TR Handbook of Practice and follows that formatting, including WHO ICF/ICD codes. It now includes the links for buying braile polyhedral dice too: http://www2.rpgresearch.com/blog/tabletop-rpg-recreation-therapy-hypothetical-scenario-complete-visual-impairment
I welcome additional suggestions, questions, comments, etc.
Happy Gaming For All!

10 minute video on Flow State (Being in "The Zone") and Role-Playing Games. This was rushed for a class assignment, so apologies for the poor audio and video quality, and how dry my style is, but people have reported it being useful information. I am hoping to have time to overhaul it and make the audio and video better quality. But hopefully this rough draft is still useful to others in the mean time.

Exciting news! Just received an email confirming writing a full chapter, on Role-Playing Games, in the upcoming 4th edition textbook "Facilitation Techniques in Therapeutic Recreation" by Professors John Dattilo, Ph.D. and Alexis (Lexi) McKenney Ed.D. of Penn State! Hope to have the final drafts completed over this summer. There are only 2 textbooks on the topic of Facilitation Techniques in TR available (the other is from Norma Stumbo), and all Recreational Therapists must cover this topic as part of their training and working toward NCTRC certification as CTRS. I wrote a rough draft of this when Dattilo suggested he was interested after seeing my presentation on RPG & Recreation Therapy at the Pacific Northwest Therapeutic Recreation Association a year and half ago (PNWTRA). Just thought I'd share the great news! Happy Gaming! http://www.rpgresearch.com/blog/rpg-chapter-tr-facilitation-book

Do you have any good ideas for using recreational therapy to serve our friends and family, this season? I want to do something really special for those I love, but I can't think of what to do. I thought it would be neat to do something spring related, so if you have any ideas with that topic in mind, I would love to hear. It's even helpful to hear some of the things you've been doing lately that relate to recreational therapy.

I found this great site for relaxation scripts. They have a great variety for stress management, anxiety, anger and pain. I just adjusted them to my clientele.
