Using Dungeons and Dragons to Explore Gender Identity
June 21st at 1pm EST, 7pm CET
During this workshop we will be using Dungeons and Dragons to explore gender identity. Expression is one of the key components of any good TTRPG session. The expression of your character and who they are. Their personality, their traits, their individual identity. This expression also allows for the opportunity of expression for gender and gender-identity in the roleplay environment that is free from judgment as it is the character you control. Many TTRPGs allow for exploration, both directly and indirectly. In D&D 5e* Elves can readily and willingly change their gender. Or perhaps a spell has been created that allows for this transitional effect. Exploration of how it affects the party, or other factors of their lives can be explored through a safe and natural progression of the role-play environment.
Regardless of where you are in your personal journey; the utilization of TTRPGs provide a safe and welcoming environment in which to explore the expression or understanding of gender-identity. These environments can help teach effective coping skills, and strategies for expression, discussion, and ultimately coming out in a safe and effective manner tailored to the needs of the individual.
Therapist Nicki Line and Sara Mercier Kennedy will be your guides to this experience. The workshop will be held online through zoom and we will be utilizing Shard tabletop, DnD Beyond, and Hero Forge for the experience.
