Improving Lives Through the Power of Accessible & Inclusive Role-Playing Games

RPG Research is a 501(c)3 non-profit research and human services charitable organization studying the effects of all role-playing game formats and their potential to improve lives around the world.

RPG Research is a non-profit charitable research & human services organization involved with role-playing games since 1977, incorporated as a 501(c)3 in 2017,  100% run by unpaid volunteers across 5 continents.

In 2018 we had only 10 regular volunteers (partnering with many other organizations).
As of February 2020 we hit over #118! In May 2020 we hit #131!

If you want faster paid training, then you'll want to check out RPG Therapeutics LLC workshops and certification programs - https://rpgtherapy.com . The content that takes weeks to learn at once per week at RPG Research as a volunteer, you will learn in a single intensive day at RPG Therapeutics.
The content that takes months at RPG Research once per week, you can learn in a few intensive weeks.
However, learning through RPG Research gives you more hands-on experience and peer-review training over time.

All of our content at RPG Research is free and open to the public.

The live streams are all free and open during the broadcasts (between 3-10 per week).

We thank our Patreon - https://patreon.com/rpgresearch donors for their support by giving them access to the recorded broadcasts, our essays, etc., about a month before the general public.

We have a few workbooks and other books in the process developing toward publication.
