Added a section to the front page enumerating the existing psychological domains that are applicable in a role-playing game therapy context...

ROLE-PLAYING GAME THERAPY

As the body of knowledge grows, the development of a distinct treatment modality, potentially "role-playing game therapy",  may develop as an effective tool for the treatment of many population groups with varied needs. Potential issues that may be receptive to role-playing game therapy could be clients diagnosed with PTSD, uni-polar depression, bi-polar, autism-spectrum disorders, and many others.

The potential for RPG therapy to develop as a distinct treatment modality is a reasonable possibility considering the strong partial overlap with many existing treatment domains, while still have unique characteristics that could potentially offer solutions the other domains may not have been as effective with. These domains include:

  • Cognitive therapy
  • Behavioral therapy
  • Recreation therapy
  • Game therapy
  • Role-play therapy
  • Drama therapy
  • Gestalt therapy
  • Humanistic therapy
