Slaying Dragons: A Role-Playing Group for Tweens

The most dangerous dragons are the ones we face inside

For a lot of tweens and teens, traditional therapy isn’t a good match.  Many young people express themselves better through the mask of fantasy, and become more truthful when playing pretend. That’s where Slaying Dragons comes in–a few tweens or teens sitting around a table fighting goblins and talking troubles together.  This group uses the classic role-playing game (RPG), Dungeons & Dragons, as an opportunity for kids to build friendships, find support, and say to the team what they can’t say to their friends and family.  No experience necessary. Role-playing where kids can really see each other helps them explore relationships, build social skills, and feel enthusiastic about some IRL fun away from screens! These are ongoing groups, for all kinds of young people and all genders, ages 11-15 and 15-17. Please contact James Abrams at 720-432-5680.

Current Schedule: Thursdays, 4:30-6:00pm

Therapist: James Abrams, LPC, LAC
