After resolving the many myths and inculcated attitudes about role-playing games and gamers, and then showing people the research supporting the efficacy of using role-playing games to achieve therapeutic and educational goals for a broad range of populations, the next question invariably is, "Okay, how do I get started?". This post will provide you with a possible road map.

If you have no prior experience with a role-playing game in the format you would like to implement for your clients/students/friends, see this: Getting started with role-playing games.

If you are excited about RPGs, and would like to learn more so that you can be an effective advocate for role-playing gaming, see this: Becoming an effective RPG Advocate.

If you are excited about RPGs, and would like to help organize and facilitate games and gaming events, without necessarily running them as a GM, see this: Becoming an effective RPG Facilitator.

If you are an experienced role-playing game player, but with little to no Game Master (GM) experience, see this: Transitioning from RPG player to GM.

If you are an experience GM, but would like to know how to apply your skills in an educational setting, see this: Becoming an RPG-based GM educator.

If you are an experience GM, but would like to know how to apply your skills in toward therapeutic goals of your clients/patients, see this: Becoming an RPG-based GM therapist.

If you would like to become a researcher or instructor for the RPG Research Project or RPG Therapeutics LLC, see this: Becoming a certified Role-playing Gamer, Game Master, Instructor, and/or Researcher.
