Designing RPG for therapy and education, speech at ZoeCon II.

I was asked to speak at ZoeCon II, the creators of The Gamers, Journey Quest, and other gaming-related shows. They had trouble getting their Audio/Video/Broadcast equipment working, so they asked me at the last minute, with less than 5 minutes warning, to go ahead and present regarding using role-playing games for therapy and education, while they tried to get everything online. I am grateful to them for the opportunity to speak with the gathering audience (though it was a rather laid-back atmosphere). Due to the situation, I went with a more interactive discussion and less formal presentation, especially for the audience.

Within I also show the kits I have been developing for specific populations, with complete kits including rules set, sheet, miniatures, pencils, and dice, a complete package for a facilitator to implement a game with a group.

I have a much more formal presentation lined up for the Washington State Therapeutic Recreation Association 16th annual conference this April 11th in Seattle. http://rpgresearch.com/blog/presenting-at-wstra-conference

Since their A/V equipment was down, I was without a microphone, and I just sat my laptop off to the side to record for posterity. I am sorry the audio and video is so poor. I spent many hours deciphering the audio as best i could to add subtitles, since many people have continued asking me to upload this video, but I couldn't do so in good conscience without adding something to make it more intelligible.

I hope you find this helpful and informative, and I welcome your questions and feedback.
Happy Gaming!
