Critical Core is a therapeutic intervention in the form of a tabletop roleplaying game. Created by Game to Grow and developed under the guidance of therapists and child psychiatrists, the game invites players to enter a shared world of fantasy, consequence, and problem solving.
Players learn perspective-taking, communication and collaboration skills, planning, impulse control, self-esteem building, develop frustration tolerance and emotional resilience, and build empathy for others, all while rolling dice and having fun.
All materials will be provided, though participants are more than welcome to bring their own dice and gaming materials.
