Teens Riding a Fantastic BookAre you struggling to find online social activities for your teen or tween to help them build relationships and develop more social or conflict-resolution skills? Kentlands Psychotherapy’s online roleplaying games (RPG) will help!

 Our virtual RPG tabletop games are specifically designed by mental health and game-making experts to help your youth improve social skills, nurture self-confidence, and expand their problem-solving abilities. And, we’re online and accepting participants locally, nationally, and worldwide!

 Tabletop and roleplaying games, such as the well-known Dungeons and Dragons (D&D), have a decades-long history of being used to harness creativity and imagination. Our RPG games take these benefits to a whole new level. 

With built-in opportunities for skill-building and guidance from our professionals, your kid will learn empathy, build relationships, and practice communication skills in a supportive, playful environment. Small groups ensure they won’t be lost in the crowd!


Tabletop Roleplaying Groups (RPG)


Online Roleplaying Makes Critical Impacts ByGirls Holding RPG Dice

  • Combating loneliness with regular social interaction
  • Developing social confidence through teamwork while completing in-game goals
  • Building relationships with others in their team
  • Growing confidence through the practice of problem-solving and communication skills
  • Harnessing creativity and imagination with storytelling and character development
  • Learning conflict resolution and problem-solving skills by working with other participants to navigate and resolve the story

Through character development, group storytelling, and working with others in an active and changing imaginary world, your teen or tween will be the main character in their own story. They can try new ways of solving problems and interacting with problems or circumstances without real-world social risk.
