If you meet with people who have or may have geeky interests, or you are interested in how to bring your geeky interests into the therapy room this training is for you. Geek therapy is a great tool for building rapport and meeting clients where they are. 

We will discuss some of the theories and methods related to using Geek Therapy. Case examples will be offered as well as specific interventions that you can use to help you unlock the potential of this intervention. You will get the chance to discover your gamer type, archetype, and character class for role-playing games. We will also play a brief version of either Dungeons and Dragons or Kids on Bikes as the group prefers.
